It’s great to have experienced paediatricians, who are up to date with what is required to pass each station


In line with the refreshed format of this exam, our faculty of clinical leads have updated this course's format to fully prepare trainees.

Over the two days, you will gain a greater understanding of the key skills required and the pitfalls to avoid. The course will focus on exam technique and prepare you for the various stations to ensure you plan your revision wisely, make the most of your knowledge and present with confidence in the exam.

The teaching faculty comprises highly experienced consultant paediatricians, and this elite team will help you have a better grasp of the assessment criteria, as well identify and articulate the skills needed to succeed at each station. It will help to alleviate any fears you have, such as dealing with an uncooperative patient and provides a safe learning environment to encourage you to ask questions and share good practice with others preparing for the exam.

You will receive highly specialised advice and practice in these stations:
