North East Surgery Centre, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead

The clinical component of the course will be held at the North East Surgery Centre at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead. This has been designed and built to provide patient care in a 21st century environment and provides one of the most modern and best-equipped surgical facilities in the region.

Postgraduate Orthopaedics FRCS (Tr & Orth)

Revision course 14-19th Jan 2020

A 6-day intensive course designed to cover all aspects of preparation for the FRCS (Tr& Orth) examination. The course material will closely mirror the material contained in the Postgraduate Orthopaedics book series.

This course is internationally accredited by the RCSEng and has been awarded 24 Continuing Professional Development(CPD) points as part of Course Accreditation by the RCS England

The Postgraduate Orthopaedics team think of the 6 day course as a big event and occasion rather than just a simple revision course!

Day 1-4: Lecture presentations.

Four full days of lectures covering all aspects of the key topics you need to know for the exam. The lectures will be delivered by relevant authors of the book and focus on important areas of the syllabus that regularly appear in the FRCS (Tr&Orth) exam.

The course content has been significantly revised to take into account candidate feedback from previous courses and also work from our 3rd edition book and forthcoming 2e viva book. The lecture programme promises to deliver exam related material that really will count for candidates about to sit the FRCS (Tr&Orth) exam.

Day 5: Viva Course for the FRCS (Tr&Orth).

The Viva Course for the FRCS (Tr&Orth) exam is based on the book Postgraduate Orthopaedics.Viva guide to the FRCS (Tr&Orth) exam. The format closely mimics the real viva examination with time built in for feedback from experienced faculty. This has had excellent feedback from previous candidates.

Day 6: Advanced Clinical Examination Course for the FRCS (Tr&Orth).

The advanced clinical examination course will take the form of a mock clinical examination with both short and intermediate cases. This will involve real patients with real clinical signs. No medical students or actors! Last year over 40 patients came for the day with a wide range of clinical conditions.

Ethos

This is a high quality course and as such candidate numbers for the viva and clinical days are limited in order to have ample opportunity to be vivaed and examine a maximum number of patients.This also ensure a high faculty to candidate ratio.

All faculty are experienced consultants with extensive teaching and training experience.

This is unlike some FRCS(Tr&Orth) revision courses that mainly involve recently exam passed registrars examining in the vivas and clinicals.

This is a not for profits course.Any extra revenue  generated is used to allow us to draw additional illustrations for our text books and sponsor fellowships through BOTA

Day 5 Viva Day

Friday 17th Jan 2020

The Viva Course for FRCS (Orth) will be based on the book Postgraduate Orthopaedics. Viva guide to the FRCS (Tr&Orth) exam.

Key authors involved in writing this book will present important topics from their relevant chapters to candidates in the viva setting. This means the faculty will be highly skilled in providing you with the best possible learning opportunities and environment.

The Postgraduate Orthopaedics Viva course is designed to cover the key topics that will be examined in the FRCS (Tr & Orth) examinations and the format will be based on the viva examination blueprint. ?The marking system will closely follow that of the FRCS (TR&Orth) exam.

There will be small groups (with no more than 3 people in each viva group) and candidates will rotate through 15 full-length FRCS (Tr&Orth) vivas covering:

  • Trauma
  • Basic Science
  • Adult Elective Orthopaedics Spine
  • Hands
  • Paediatrics

Topics examined will be specifically orientated as to the most likely subjects that are regularly asked in the real exam setting. To make the course effective, the numbers of places are limited. In addition, we offer you the opportunity to video part of your viva session and offer feedback on your performance with suggestions for improvement.

Day 6 Advanced clinical examination day

Saturday 18th Jan 2020

The advanced Clinical Examination Course will be in the form of a mock clinical examination.

This will involve real patients and with real clinical signs.

There will be three 20-minute lectures at the beginning of the day to set the scene.  The format will involve a mixture of short and intermediate cases very much in keeping with the arrangement in the real exam.

There will be 15 stations in total. There will be 7 short case stations (4 upper limb and 4 lower limb stations), 6 intermediate case stations (A mixture of upper limb and lower limb cases), 1 spine short case station and 1 paediatrics station.

Each station will last 25 minutes. For the short cases, each group will examine 3 short cases in the 15 minutes (1 case per candidate, other 2 candidates observing) with 10 minutes feedback.

For the intermediate cases, it is 15 minutes per station. This consists of 5 minutes history, 5 minutes clinical examination and 5 minutes for discussion. Candidates will rotate in turn to each of the intermediate cases.

To make the course effective, the numbers of places have been limited. ?The examination will take place at the North East Surgery Centre, Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Sheriff Hill Gateshead, UK.
