Our 1 day course preparing candidates for the Stage 3 assessments for GP VTS / GP ST entry has been running since 2005 and offers comprehensive information and opportunity to practise and prepare for the selection centres for Stage 3 Assessments in 2015.  We help hundreds of doctors succeed each year, with successful candidates entering every Deanery in the UK in 2014.

The course covers the Stage 3 assessment / selection centre formats used by all deaneries in the UK in 2015. We will be covering:

What to expect at Stage 3 assessments - overview of the Stage 3 format and marking for 2015.

Simulated Consultations - communication and consultation skills, role play practice with simulated patients, explaining diagnoses, explaining investigations, breaking bad news, common cases for the simulated consultations, dealing with difficult patients. We will cover all 3 types of consultation - with a patient, with a relative or carer and with a colleague. You will all get to practise this task in small groups, with an individual mock case with professional actors and individual feedback.

Written Prioritisation Exercises - sample tasks with detailed explanations on ranking and how to increase your score. You will all get to practise this task individually, with feedback as a group.

Questions and Answers: There is a dedicated Q and A session where you will be able to ask questions related to the assessments and a 1 to 1 clinic at the end of the day to ask personal questions.


The Course Director and main speaker is Dr Mahibur Rahman, an expert in the GP Recruitment process. He is a GP and Consultant in Medical Education, and has written and taught extensively on Getting into GP Training, MRCGP and GP Careers. Read more about him here.

"Fantastic preparation offered at GPST3 Emedica course - many thanks to the whole team! Received first choice job in London deanery".

Dr K T - GPST Entry London Deanery 2014

"Thank you so much for helping me with stage 2 and 3 assessments. I learnt yesterday that I secured a GP job in Severn and was ranked number 1 in the deanery. I scored 4 and 4 at stage 2. I think the tips I picked up from your course made all the difference."

Dr K P - GPST Entry Severn Deanery 2013

"It was one of the best quality courses I went to. I was so impressed with the organisation of the course as well as the contents. It directed me to what and how to study and prepare for the exam. I am so grateful for Dr Rahman and his team for all the help and support which led me to succeed and pass the GP entry exam as well as getting my 1st preference."

Dr E E - GPST Entry West Midlands 2014

"Emedica courses were very helpful in preparation for all stages of the GP entry exam. I secured the post in my first choice deanery in the area where I wish to work.I ranked in first 25 percent of candidates who were invited for stage 3. I am very pleased about this result as I did not graduate in UK and English is not my first language. Thank you".

Dr B K - GPST Entry East of England Deanery 2014

"I applied last year for London and was unsuccessful at Stage 3. This year I attended 2 courses for Stage 3 (Emedica being the better of the two) and came in the top 10% of KSS successful candidates getting my first choice area. Thank you!"

Dr L J - GPST Entry KSS Deanery 2014

"This Emedica course really helped me prepare for the daunting Stage 3 assessment. It was well structured with particularly good tips on the written prioritisation task. Would definitely recommend the course to others applying for GPST!"

Dr K K - GPST Entry London Deanery 2014

"I attended the Stage 3 assessment course and it was fantastic. Very professional and got me perfectly prepared for the interview stage. I used the online revision to consolidate the skills taught on the course and as a result got my first choice location in my first choice deanery".

Dr M S - GPST Entry Mersey Deanery 2014

"I loved the course and feel that Dr Rahman is very dedicated and really cares about all of us (unlike many other courses where they just care about your money!). It is for this reason that the course is so good and so successful. I found the email updates very useful and they helped relieve the stress of this process- particularly with such ambiguity about when results would be released. I got my dream job 10 mins from my house".

Dr M A - GPST Entry London Deanery 2014

"To all the team at Emedica, Thank you for all your help. I am thrilled that I got into my first choice deanery. I used other resources to help with stage 3 but your course was the most useful. The tips you gave focused on technique and what examiners were looking and the experienced team of actors gave constructive advice about our individual performance. Thank you once again!"

Dr N L - GPST Entry West Midlands Deanery 2014

"The stage 3 course was very thought provoking and helped me understand what the examiners were looking for. I am glad that I got my first choice rotation which was very close to my home. Thank you Emedica and Dr Rahman."

Dr S M - GPST Entry - Yorkshire & Humber Deanery 2014

"The course came highly recommended. It was a fantastic course that really helped prepare me for stage 3. I was ranked 6th in my chosen area.Thank you Emedica!"

Dr M S - GPST Entry West Midlands Deanery 2014

"I wanted to thank Dr Rahman for helping me gain a GP training post in the Northern Ireland deanery. The stage 3 course was enjoyable and invaluable in helping me to prepare both for the written and interview aspects of the assessment. Thank you very much!"

Dr M K - GPST Entry Northern Ireland Deanery 2014

"Dear Dr Mahibur Rahman and the rest of the Emedica team. THANK YOU from the very bottom of my heart for all the support! I have secured a rotation Alhamdulillah! Your online videos and the course itself have been invaluable to my preparation. I have already recommended it to my colleagues. I hope you continue to grow and increase in the good work that you are doing! Jazak Allah Khair!! I can't thank you enough! The most useful course was the Stage 3 Assessment course. I found the demonstrations very helpful- I modelled my consultations on them."

Dr N H - GPST Entry East of England Deanery 2014

"Before the Emedica course I really had no understanding of how the stage 3 exam worked and what was required. Dr Rahman is a fantastic and very enthusiastic teacher. He explained everything that was necessary to do well in a concise way. There was an opportunity to practise our skills which was useful… I got my 1st choice at Kings within the London deanery. Thanks very much to everyone at Emedica for your help in getting the job I wanted for the next 3 years."

Dr P M - GPST Entry London Deanery 2014

"It was an amazing course day! I definitely got more points for going it - I wish I went to the earlier ones! I had a low stage 2 score but thanks to this score I got my top choice deanery and area! Thank you Emedica"

Dr J B - GPST Entry Yorkshire & Humber Deanery 2014

"The one day stage 3 course was excellent. It really gave me a sense of what the examiners were looking for and gave me a structured way of approaching the stage 3 cases that allowed me to maximise my marks. I ended up being ranked 3rd out of the 232 candidates in my deanery and got my first choice rotation. I am sure that the Emedica revision aids and course significantly contributed to that score."

Dr S T - GPST Entry North western Deanery 2014

"Fantastic stage 3 preparation course given by Dr Rahman.Some superb tips which came in very handy and a very well-structured day. I truly believe I would not have secured my London post without the help of Dr Rahman and this superb one day course. Would highly recommend this to all."

Dr S P - GPST Entry - London Deanery

"The stage 3 preparation course I attended has exceeded my expectations. Seldom have I found a preparation course so useful. I ended up getting my first choice at St Mary's Hospital London. I couldn't have done it without your input. Many thanks and keep up the great work."

Dr S W- GPST Entry London Deanery 2014

"I ranked 7th in KSS and achieved a band 3 and 4 for the Stage 2 exam. I couldn't have done so well without Emedica. The stage 3 course was particularly good and the chance to practise with actors and receive feedback was really helpful. Worth every penny! Thanks very much."

Dr E K - GPST Entry KSS Deanery 2014

"I didn't do very well in my UKFPO application and ended up with my 60th choice of job in my 8th choice deanery for Foundation Training, so I was quite worried about the outcome of my GPST application. Fortunately, with the help of Emedica, I ranked 2nd in my first choice deanery and got my first choice job for GP training. I'm delighted and I only wish I had been on a similar course for UKFPO applications."

Dr H G - GPST Entry East of England Deanery 2014

"The one day stage 3 course was excellent. It really gave me a sense of what the examiners were looking for and gave me a structured was of approaching the stage 3 cases that allowed me to maximise my marks. I ended up being ranked 3rd out of the 232 candidates in my deanery and got my first choice rotation. I am sure that the Emedica revision aids and course significantly contributed to that score."

Dr S T - GPST North Western Deanery 2014

"Just wanted to let you know that I got into Northern Ireland which was my first choice deanery and that I ranked 5th. Thanks for all your help with the course, would recommend to others."

Dr M T - GPST Entry Northern Ireland Deanery 2014

"With help from what I learnt at the course I secured my first choice and ranked 6th out of around 300 candidates. Thanks Emedica!"

Dr J W - GPST Entry KSS Deanery 2014

"I ranked 6/232 in the North Western deanery so I am understandably thrilled and would like to thank you so much for your excellent course which provided me with an essential foundation for my exam preparation and fantastic insight into what the stage 3 exam would involve. I will recommend your course to future applicants!"

Dr E S - GPST Entry North Western Deanery 2014

"I just wanted to drop you a quick email to let you know that I was successful in securing my first choice deanery following the Stage 3 Assessment Course I attended. I also used the online revision resources for stage 2 and 3. I got a band 4 and 3 at Stage 2, and ranked 9th in the West Midlands Deanery at stage 3 - I really am so chuffed, and believe that, although I may have been an "ok" candidate without the courses, they gave me a better understanding of what to expect, and gave me the confidence to know that what I was doing/saying was right."

Dr S A - GPST Entry West Midlands Deanery 2014

"Got my first choice job with a rank of 15/563! Alhamdullilah Thank you soooo much for your help, & wise words of advice. I used all your tips in the exam - I'm ecstatic!"

Dr O A - GPST Entry London Deanery 2014

"I attended the Stage 3 assessment course and it was fantastic. Very professional and got me perfectly prepared for the interview stage. I used the online revision to consolidate the skills taught on the course and as a result got my first choice location in my first choice deanery."

Dr M S - GPST Entry Mersey Deanery 2014

"Having done PLAB 1 and 2, clinical assessment prior to starting my Foundation programme and in addition to completing a GP rotation as my 1st job in FY2, I felt adequately ready for the GP entry process particularly the stage 3. Friends however recommended the Emedica stage 3 preparation course which I reluctantly attended BUT it was the best decision ever. The course help me streamline my preparation and am happy to say I got into Northampton in the East Midlands which was my first choice. Kudos Emedica. Will certainly recommend you to more friends because you have got what it takes to help everyone get into GP training. Many thanks."

Dr D T - GPST Entry East Midlands Deanery 2014

"I applied to Scotland and got an offer of my first choice which was Ayrshire and Arran. I was ranked 22/291 so I would like to say thank you for the course and I will be sure to attend future courses."

Dr A M - GPST Entry Scotland Deanery 2014

"Thank you Emedica!! I attended your stage 3 course in London and found it extremely useful! I left knowing how to approach both the scenarios and written task and with lots of practice afterwards, managed to do extremely well. I ranked 25th in my deanery and have secured my first choice post! Thank you once again! '

Dr E S - GPST Entry London Deanery 2014

"Great set of courses to streamline your thought process to crack GP entry exams. Coming from a different specialty, it really gave insight into cracking the exam to get my first choice deanery! Hope to continue association with Emedica to be a successful GP."

Dr A G - GPST Entry Yorkshire & Humber Deanery 2014

"The Emedica GP Stage 3 preparation course was incredibly useful, much more so than I expected. It highlighted many aspects of the selection process that I don't think I would have otherwise considered. Realising these skills and demonstrating them on the day, I think I was able to show more clearly that I was a strong candidate, especially as I had not done as well as hoped on the Stage 2 exam. Particularly useful was the advice given for dealing with difficult 'colleague consultation' scenarios, of which I think we have least experience with, and also the discussion and practice of the written exam. The day itself was well organised, comfortable, enjoyable and there was a great lunch! Highly recommended!"

Dr P H - GPST Entry Severn Deanery 2014

"I have been able to obtain a GP training post in London, Tower Hamlets - my preference - and I would like to say a few words about the Emedica Stage 3 course. It was an absolutely brilliant course organised and delivered with consummate professionalism and diligence. It gave me direction, structure and vision in terms of stage 3 and removed a lot of the trepidation. The course enthused with me with such confidence that I approached my preparations with a great deal of freedom and was able to express myself in the exam. I had clarity of thought and action."
