This Course consists of Three Teaching Components
1. VIVA. Approximately 250 cases are covered over the two days. Each delegate receives TEN viva each over the two days.
- DAY ONE: Plain film Chest, GI and MSK radiology.
- DAY TWO: HPB, Gynae, Barium and Nuclear Medicine.
2. LECTURE: The Course contains Five Lectures
- Abdominal Radiographs (includes tips on recognising perforation, volvulus and other hollow viscous pathology, review diagnosis approach to a plain film)
- Chest Radiograph (Common mistakes trainees make, the 'Normal CXR', revision of Anterior, Middle and Posterior Mediastinum)
- How To Approach a Liver lesion in the exam
- Gynae Pathology Review Diagnosis Ovarian lesions, Endometrium and Cervix
- The basics of Barium Imaging
3. PRE-COURSE SUPPORT GROUP. The five delegates attending the course are included in a revision group in which cases are sent, and recorded model answers are provided after one day. A case is sent every two to three days in the months leading to the exam. The aim is to provide mentorship and support over a period of time.
Information About the Course
Day One is comprised of three themed viva with 50 cases in each section. The cases are hard and the purpose is revision. Many trainees have limited exposure to plain films in practice and the exam is to target discriminator cases.
Day Two contains Four themed areas which can come up in Long Cases or the Viva. From my experience trainees sometimes are unsure of where to target their revision in these areas and the aim of this day is to try and help attendees organise their thought process. By the end of this day delegates should feel comfortable with liver lesions, ovarian mass, barium cases and common nuclear medicine cases.
The Lectures! Having taught trainees over the last 7 years and having over 125 delegates attend the paid courses and hundreds of people attend the FRCR Mindset Webinars these lectures have been designed to try and fix blind spots! I have analysed why trainees struggle on certain cases and the aim is to try and offer solutions in this area.
The WhatsApp Support Group. Only five delegates are allowed per course. The support group is an opportunity to develop technique before the course. Cases are sent to the group with a clinical vignette. Delegates are encouraged to either post an answer on the group or to send it personally to the faculty. Model answers are given after 1 to 2 days.
