Course information:

  • The course takes place in the Outpatients Department of Northwick Park Hospital, the same venue as the clinical examination.
  • All teaching faculty have experience and knowledge on MRCP Part II examination techniques, including the PACES exam.
  • Approximately 80+ patients attend and are selected with care and audited at each course to ensure standards are optimal.
  • Day one consists of six stations (five clinical + ethics in the morning and history taking in the afternoon) with five patients per clinical station who have a variety of diagnoses. Candidates will have the opportunity to present their findings to an examiner during the session.
  • The morning of day two now offers six station rotations with six candidates and one examiner per group. Each station will have five patients around a single disease system and each candidate will examine one patient and observe the other candidates examining. The examiner will provide individual one to one assessment of clinical ability on all the different systems. Rotations include communication skills.
  • The afternoon of day two will consist of a `mock’ PACES exam. Each candidate will individually rotate around four stations including history taking and breaking bad news. Constructive criticism on system technique, including strengths and weaknesses, will be given to each candidate. There will also be the opportunity to examine the patients not previously seen on the other exam rotations.
