Catch-up image

You will receive a copy of the text book “Clinical Cases in Paediatrics, DCH Examinations” as part of the course fee. This will be given to you on the day of the course, and you will use it throughout the day.


This one-day course will allow you to become more familiar with the DCH clinical exam assessment criteria. You will gain a greater understanding of the key skills required and the pitfalls to avoid. Rather than a mock exam we will focus on exam techniques and prepare you for each station of your exam. The programme will be based around each of the stations: Communication, Data Interpretation, Structured Oral, Clinical assessment, Focused history, Child Development and Safe-prescribing.

In the evaluation from past courses, 100% of delegates said they would recommend this course to a colleague.

The teaching faculty comprises of highly experienced senior DCH Clinical examiners. This elite team will help you to have a better grasp of the assessment criteria as well as identify and articulate the skills needed to succeed at each station.

This one-day course will be interactive with workshops, small group work, discussions and role play. It will not involve real patients. This course will facilitate a safe learning environment encouraging you to ask questions of the examiners and share good practice. You will not be taught exam content or tested on your knowledge. You will be taught the skills necessary to pass each station.
