This course will expose you to 100 different CSA cases covering all the major curriculum areas. For each case, we will go through the key points to cover (and what not to miss) for data gathering (history and examination), clinical management (diagnosis, management, other risks, follow up, safety netting), and interpersonal skills - how to explain things in a clear, concise and confident way.
As well as covering challenging and important case areas, you will see key skills being demonstrated live so you can model best practice and also see examples of why a candidate might lose marks and ultimately fail, so you can avoid them. Course Programme:

The course is taught by Dr Mahibur Rahman - the medical director of Emedica. Dr Rahman took part in the CSA pilot in 2006, he sat the first ever sitting of the CSA in September 2007, where he was awarded a pass with merit after passing every case. He has been teaching both registrars and GP trainers on how to prepare for CSA for 10 years. In that time, he has helped several thousand doctors, including GP registrars from every deanery in the UK, doctors preparing for the simulated surgery part of the induction and refresher assessment, and doctors preparing for MRCGP international.
