Paediatric orthopaedic FRCS (Orth) revision course


This course is now full but we will be organising an additional lower limb and paediatric revision course in March 2018, due to the demand for paediatric courses. Email Ruth Threadgold for further information and registration.

Convenor: Mr Gavin Spence, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Great Ormond Street Hospital

This two day paediatric orthopaedic revision course is designed for candidates taking the FRCS (Orth) examination, section 2 (vivas and clinicals) and is entirely hands-on/interactive.

The first day consists of vivas and spotter sessions involving spot diagnoses made on clinical images and radiographs; the second day is devoted to taking histories and examining paediatric patients. There are plenty of opportunities to test your paediatric orthopaedic knowledge, practise your exam technique, and clarify issues with an experienced faculty.
