Dr A A - Round 1 January 2019

I am delighted to have been offered my first choice deanery for GP training, scoring a high band 3 and a band 4 in the MSRA and 51/52 at interview.

Course Feedback

"All the stages of the exam were covered in detail with lots of examples and in-depth analysis of the scoring system. The afternoon session with the actors was extremely helpful."

"Very good and interactive session with trainers and feedback. Really educational and informative day which helped me feel more comfortable for the interview."

"Dr Rahman went through what is expected from candidates thoroughly both in the simulation and written tasks. It is now very clear in my mind. I liked the fact that we all got to do one consultation session in small groups with individual feedback and it was useful to see other people's consultation skills. The actors and trainers were excellent."

"I thought the course content covered the key areas for the assessment, helping me to appreciate what would happen on the assessment day and what was expected of me. I thought the opportunity to practice was seamless and was very useful to go through all the scenarios at the end as a whole group."

"Boosted my confidence and I passed the first time! "

Dr S A - Round 1 January 2019

"I attended the stage 3 selection center which gave me an excellent score 50/52. I had focused more on the clinical part of the SRA and less on the SJT part so needed to do very well in the selection center to improve my overall score as much as possible. I managed to get an offer in the region I wanted. Very pleased with the result."

Dr A O - Round 1 January 2019

"I was following Emedica and Dr Rahman on Facebook long time before I even had my first job in the UK. Your guidance and help was enormously useful.

"Many thanks for your help and advice in the nicely organised and informative course for the stage 3 interview at Birmingham on 20th sept. I got the offer for GP training to be started from Feb 2019. I didn't even practise a single station with anyone as I didn't have the opportunity except in that course. But also I took the online subscription of Emedica to see those helpful videos of consultation and practised the writing questions from there with proper timing which I did as far as possible in those few days. But I am sure I couldn't get this offer without your course as I had no idea about the structure of the interview. In the course I had a clear overview of the exam and also those videos helped me."

We have helped unemployed doctors, SHOs, consultants, staff grades and F2 doctors get shortlisted and selected for GP training. The latest round of applications (2018) has been another successful one for our delegates with success in EVERY deanery once again. Here is some feedback from our previous courses:
