Paediatric orthopaedics is traditionally a feared part of the FRCS (Tr & Orth) exam, filled as it with complexity and controversy. Many candidates have not had much personal experience in paediatrics, yet are still expected to be able to discuss the core knowledge in detail. But with so many other subspecialties to master, how do you prepare for it, when your time to revise is limited?
Attend this 1 day virtual course to learn all you need to know for the paediatric orthopaedic section of the exam. This course aims to give you the knowledge you need to tackle paediatric cases with confidence. With alternating sessions on core knowledge and interactive discussion, key features include:
- Pre-course series of short podcasts discussing exam technique in paediatrics, hot topics, common misconceptions and traps, and how to negotiate controversies and stay out of trouble.
- Spotter sessions, MCQs to test your understanding
- Exam top tips, buzz words, and principles clinicians use which are “not in the books”
- Up to date and evidence-based, with reference to key publications
- Voluntary hot seat viva practice, concluding with the “gold standard” model answer
- Post-course material including the relevant NICE/national guidelines, and one recent quality review paper per major topic
The “Paeds in one day” ORUK intensive online course is an innovative approach to exam revision, which has been introduced to significantly enhance FRCS (Tr & Orth) candidates pass rates, based on our wide experience delivering popular revision courses in Paediatric Orthopaedics for over a decade, and our proven record of outstanding feedback.
