About the course

This four-part interactive teaching series will provide attendees with a thorough revision of the core topics that mainly make up the 'knowledge' component of the MRCS OSCE. Delivered via Zoom, it is specifically designed for candidates appearing for the exam in February 2022. The teaching will be structured and delivered by Professor Stuart Enoch, convenor and chair of faculty of the highly regarded and well-established Cardiff MRCS Courses.                                                                  

            Attendees can choose to attend whichever session(s) they feel will be beneficial to their revision.
