This weeks 16 June, 2011 TUTORIAL QUESTIONS are HERE & HERE &HERE


 

CLINICAL EXAM FOCUS !

All candidates are expected to not only participate in the SCEs as EXAMINERS but also to PREPARE SCEs for presentation.

A guide for TOPICS can be found here


SCE structure consists of
- 3 Minutes for reading
- 7 Minutes for presentation
The opening question is given outside the room as part of the reading.
The remaining presentation usually consists of 4 sub-questions, often ending on a non-clinical management issue
There are now EQUIPMENT SCEs and COMMUNICATION SCEs with actors.

The first hour of the tutorial will be spent reviewing these questions.

This will be followed by Topic Discussions which will be followed by reviewing PAST PAPERS for Key Point review of that topic.

1530-1630 RESULTS REVIEW
1630-1715 Topic Discussions
1715-1800 Key Features / Round table.

One VAQ per page which is pre-timed to last for 7.5 minutes

You can always go BACK, but try to stay in time.
Model answers will placed in the future, in the meantime hand your answers in to PQ and it will be marked.

PREVIOUS EXAM QUESTIONS can be found HERE

PART II

Welcome to the Part II Training program.  This can be is quite difficult to organise in order to make allowances for two exams a year.

At this stage I have decided to follow the SCGH program. It is intended to be completed for the EOY exam with one-to-one adjustments made for those who need to sit/re-sit at the beginning of the following year. The syllabus as we all know is extensive. The purpose of the tutorials, however, is not to teach knowledge, but to review knowledge already gained and for candidates to learn exam technique.

Running through the syllabus is a way of keeping an orderly pace through everyone’s reading.

The SUB-TOPICS are special areas that need specific review that have been common past questions or not well covered in day to day work

The 90 minute tutorials will consist of…

  • There will be mock exam questions consisting of VAQ’s, MCQ’s or SAQ’s based on the main topic of the day.  This will occupy the first 30 minutes of each session.
  • The VAQ’s and MCQ will be marked at the tutorial.
  • SAQ's will initially be discussed by the tutorial group, but closer exam time they will be marked by the Consultants and returned the following week.
  • The tutorials will encompass not only basic science on the topic but consultant level issues.  They will when able include Radiology and Equipment reviews.

Topics

This is the older program, which I have left on as an example for those planning to keep their reading going at a slower pace. New format also introduced where sub-topic presentations are presented in a ten minute format. This will be adapted to SCE format closer to the exam.
