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.

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.

Concise Orthopaedic Notes

These concise revision notes are aimed at candidates preparing for UK and international FRCS (Trauma & Orthopaedics) exit examination as well as the European Board (EBOT) and SICOT diplomas. The book has been written in an easy to read style, with a focus on being an exam candidate’s companion for quick revision on the go. Candidates are usually caught between a busy job and the demands of these challenging exams. This book covers the depth and breadth of Trauma & Orthopaedics knowledge to help candidates sail through the Fellowship exit examinations. We have aimed to provide a high quality one stop concise knowledge bank to cover the whole syllabus of Trauma & Orthopaedics in a well organised bullet point style. This will provide a useful resource for both part 1 (MCQs, EMQs) as well as part 2 (Viva and Clinical) components of the exit examinations. It is an ideal companion to complement your preparation for the examination with the most useful information presented in the most succinct manner.
