PREP is an intensive exam preparation course for the Primary FRCA SOE (vivas) and OSCEs. Realistic practice, exactly as in the real exam.
Day one: a full day of SOE practice. Feedback on presentation, answer structure and overall performance. Highly focused tutorials on the 'trickier' bits of the syllabus and how to handle them in the exam.
Day two: a full day of OSCE practice (two full cycles). Realistic experience of real scenarios, ideal for honing technique. Broad range of topics covered with an opportunity to consolidate knowledge in the debrief sessions.
The course is facilitated by Consultant Anaesthetists from Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust and Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
Course Director - Dr Nick Wilson, Consultant Anaesthetist, Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust.
