We have 2-3 Randomly chosen ‘topics’ pulled, you have 10 seconds to think and recollect followed by 2 minutes presentation, followed by general discussion by all attending for 5 minutes.This also allows a large number of topics to be discussed – 150 over 3 months.
All Clinical Stations are discussed ‘in rotation’ as per curriculum or request from participants.
Scenarios are discussed as:
- Communication: Scenario player by candidate. Examiner-2. Observed by ‘all’. Feedback.
- History and Management: Role player, candidate, discussion with Examiner & feedback.
- Video scenarios – 3 minutes to watch, presentation and discussion with Examiner for 6 minutes.
