A subscription costs £59 and provides access for 2 months - you will be able to access the materials as soon as you subscribe.
Having examples of high scoring consultations for all 3 types will allow you to see exactly what a great consultation looks like, and help you to put some of the techniques discussed in the lectures into practise. By including a live timer, you can also see how to use your time to demonstrate all the areas needed to help you get a really high score and hopefully get your first choice job.You can see some actual screenshots from 4 of the 6 consultations below:
We also have sample tasks to allow you to practise for all 4 parts of the Stage 3 assessments:Written Prioritisation exercise

for you to practise including:
Simulated consultations - with patients

Feedback from previous users:
"The Stage 3 example scenarios and written prioritisation cases were great - I felt really prepared for the Stage 3 assessment in terms of knowing what to expect because of the example scenarios Emedica provided. The written questions were very time limited so having plenty of examples to do prior to the actual assessment was hugely beneficial. Many thanks."
Dr V C - Scotland Deanery Round 1 2017
"I have used other online training materials, but this was the best. Very informative. Was very useful for my stage 3 interview. I have managed to get into GP training."
Dr G G - Yorkshire & Humber Deanery Round 1 2017
"Emedica has been an invaluable tool. Don't think I could have managed without it, especially the Stage 3 course and online revision service. Can't praise them highly enough. Thank you Emedica!"
Dr T D - East of England Deanery Round 1 2017
"Emedica was the best resource that allowed me to get my 1st choice deanery. The best aspects were the Stage 3 online resources - the scenarios and practice papers for the prioritisation question- and the Stage 3 assessment course. In particularly the simulated patient practice was invaluable to give me confidence for the exam. Everyone is so friendly and approachable who run the course. The other thing to mention is the online Facebook group which I found out about during one of the course I attended. It answered many questions that I had."
Dr L H - West Midlands Deanery Round 1 2017
"The courses were really helpful, I managed to secure my first choice in a London deanery. Unfortunately, I could not attend the courses in person. However, I just did the online revision and used this as my main source of revision and it was great, in the limited time I had and of all the courses I did online, this was the easiest to navigate and most organized"
Dr M E - London Deanery Round 1 2017
"I only had about 3-4 days to prepare for this course and was able to gather the necessary details to prepare from the online course provided to get through my exams. I was comfortable and unstressed at the exam center and I passed and was given my first-choice placement because of it. Very happy. Thank you."

"I thought the Stage 3 Online Revision was spot on. I was meant to go to NZ but then applied to Round 2 at the last minute and as all the exams were close together I did not have much time to revise. I paid for Stage 3 Online Revision and watched the clips before my exam and it was very similar to the exam itself. Keep up the good work."

I actually attended all the courses and subscribed to all the online resources
I got two band 4s in stage 2 and then did well enough in stage 3 that I ended up ranking high enough to have been allocated to any of the programmes in Severn Deanery - and have accepted my first choice. I would like to thank you so much for all the help without which I definitely would not have done so well (particularly in the SJTs). I will be highly recommending your courses to next year's group."
