Available spaces: Spaces available for lectures only
This two day course is aimed at candidates appearing for the FRCS (Orth) examinations.
The first day consists entirely of lectures, and the second day will consist of vivas in the morning and clinicals in the afternoon, whereby you will be examining both adult and paediatric patients.
The course will cover both lower limb and paediatric orthopaedics. Lectures will highlight the salient features in every topic and will enable candidates to enrich their answers with the right “buzz words”.
There will be interactive discussions, clinical case presentations that emphasize the tips and tricks of correct examination techniques, and a mock exam consisting of viva and short and intermediate cases in real exam style.Instant feedback will be provided to candidates at the end of each session.
Candidates will have ample opportunities throughout the course to put questions to our faculty, comprising of consultants (lower limb and paediatric orthopaedic surgeons) and senior trainees (who have recently cleared the exams and are impatient to share their exam secrets).
