AG discussed the NEW OLD MRCPCH Clinical exam.
Clinical exam has come round 360 degrees disrupted due to Covid. The Clinical exam was ‘suspended’ for a period followed by FULLY virtual exam. Face to Face exam without children was next and now the exam has reverted to how it was intended to be – FACE TO FACE WITH CHILDREN.
There is one lasting change in the exam and that is in the DEVELOPMENT STATION. It has now changed to a 22 minutes station. It now has two components: History and Development assessment. It is scenario based with candidate required to get appropriate focused history to elicit aetiology, functioning and support followed by development assessment of a domain. Discussion with the examiner is the final interaction on the station.
Questions on what to read:
- NICE guidelines
- Know all ‘Hypos’, ‘Hypers & Status … conditions you know.
- The above will cover almost all emergencies.
- Note difference in emphasis in history at various stations.
We will start the Summer course with Development station on suggestions by all.
