As one of the theory exams required for RCPCH membership (and often the final theory exam taken), success in the Applied Knowledge in Practice (AKP) exam is important to many. However, it requires a high level of knowledge and understanding, and it can often be difficult for candidates to know how to approach their revision.
Therefore, the RCPCH are delighted to be working with our expert faculty to provide this new workshop, offering additional support and guidance to candidates.
The speakers will work through a number of scenarios focused on topics from the exam known to be challenging to previous candidates, giving tips about how to approach them. They will also give advice about how to manage revising for the exam. There will be opportunities for you to participate throughout.
