The lower limb and paediatric FRCS (Orth) revision course

Overview

Course convenor: Mr Sunil Bajaj, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust

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”.

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.

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).

Revision Books

Orthopaedic basic science for the postgraduate examination: practice MCQs and EMQs

Designed for trainees preparing to sit the written section of the FRCS (Tr & Orth) or equivalent examination. Whilst much of the general orthopaedic curriculum is often learnt from clinical exposure, knowledge of the basic sciences frequently requires more specific attention. Drawing partly on material from the hugely successful Orthopaedic Research UK courses, this book simultaneously provides a tool for assessing knowledge levels and a means of rapidly assimilating detailed facts. The authors are all approaching, or have achieved completion of higher surgical and fellowship training, but have sufficiently recent experience of postgraduate orthopaedic examinations to ensure that the questions are representative of the level and scope required.

Revision Books

Orthopaedic basic and clinical science for the postgraduate examination: viva practice & diagrams

Designed for trainees preparing to sit the oral section of the FRCS (Tr & Orth) or equivalent examination. There is a temptation for exam preparation to focus all too heavily on pure knowledge acquisition at the expense of practising viva technique. This book therefore aims to stimulate a more problem-based approach through the use of mock vivas, as well as encouraging candidates to practise drawing out and labelling the diagrams frequently asked by examiners. Conceived as a companion volume to the hugely successful Practice EMQs and MCQs, and drawing partly on material from the popular Orthopaedic Research UK courses, this text simultaneously provides a tool for assessing knowledge levels and a means of rapidly assimilating detailed facts.
