Event Details

The emphasis of the course is on technique and aims to provide a framework early in a trainee's preparation for understanding the nature of the FRCS (Tr&Orth) exam, develop strategies for optimising revision and for maximising scoring in the Viva and Clinical Examinations.  In addition it offers a chance to network with fellow candidates taking the Examination.  We have had very positive feedback from previous years.

The strong teaching Faculty consists of FRCS Examiners and Consultants from a number of regions.  The course is open to all Trauma and Orthopaedic trainees and is targeted at levels ST6-ST8s who are at least six months from taking the Clinical component of the Exam.  The outstanding venue of ISEH is on Tottenham Court Road, central London, with excellent transport links.

The novel course design has been initiated by UCL Partners and has support from Training Programme Directors for their trainees to attend.  The Course is free as it is heavily subsidised by UCLPartners, with only a £50 refundable deposit on registration.  Refreshments will be provided.  

A full refund will be given for cancellations up to 1 month before the course, after which no refund is possible.

Provisional Programme

The Viva teaching covers an overview of the material most commonly asked, how to go about finding the answers and how to develop strategies in answering the questions

The Clinical teaching covers idealised routines for short and intermediate cases, with time for questions and answers.
