Online How to pass the FRCS (Orth) examination - 18/10/2021 - 19/10/2021


This course is focused specifically on the FRCS viva (part 2) examination and ideal for those taking the exam shortly (in November or February). It is not an exhaustive viva course on each topic but rather a finishing course to equip you with the skills and techniques to structure your answers, and the key words, phrases and methods to use to guide you smoothly through the viva examination. The faculty are all dynamic teachers and the focus is on small group numbers to allow individual attention per candidate to enable them to approach the exam smoothly.
