Cases are carried out in a realistic setting, and timed just like the real exam. You will have 10 minutes for the case including reading.

Each session can be tailored to meet your individual needs. If you are re-sitting, we can analyse your feedback from your last attempt and work on any specific areas of weakness highlighted.

Feedback from previous 1 to 1 coaching sessions
"I have secured my first choice offer
for GPST (West Midlands deanery). I would like to mention Gillian
especially, because I had two sessions with her. The first one really made me aware of where I was going wrong
, the second session gave me confidence
. In one word, Gillian was awesome. I owe my success to her, honestly. Also, I would like to thank the team. I could only book sessions for weekends, and you always accommodated me
! Again, Awesome!!Dr A D - GPST Entry - Round 2 April 2016
"I found the session very useful
. I was amazed by the quality of the coaching
. In 2 hours I had learnt more about my consulting skills than I had in 2 years from various GP trainers
. I would highly recommend.Dr S G - GPST Entry - Round 2 April 2016
"I had a 1:1 coaching session
with Ed Clark
in January and it was brilliant. It was the most useful course/session that I have attended
. Ed was really helpful and gave me really good constructive feedback
. I got my first choice job in London
and I felt this was because he helped tweak out any minor flaws.Dr S P - GPST Entry - Round 1 January 2016
"It's not just good stage 3 preparation
but as a tool to become a better doctor.
I have already used some of the skills learnt in the hospital. Gillian is amazing.
Just plain brilliant. I cannot speak highly enough of her abilities. Please send her back to London immediately."Dr A R - GPST Entry - Round 1 February 2015
"I found the session yesterday very useful
, and I thought my tutor Gillian was extremely kind and helpful
, and gave great feedback. I am not too sure on any suggestions for improvement as everything was so well organised
, I didn't even have to bring a pen or paper as this was provided."Dr H M- GPST Entry - Round 1 February 2015
Just to let you know, I got into GP training in KSS.
I wanted to thank you both for your guidance
and support.Dr A V- GPST Entry - Round 1 February 2015
, I was unsuccessful last time, but I attended one to one sage 3 course this time
which was really helpful."Dr H A - GPST Entry Resit - Round 3 2014
Finally I got it! After 2 years of failing stage 3 I finally got an offer in the Northern deanery.
I would say the 1-to-1 course
was really helpful
overall and it's just to remember to never give up!Dr H K -GPST Entry Resit - Round 2 2014
Alhamdulillah, I passed
this time and also 2nd in the ranking!
I'm so so thankful to Almighty Allah! I got North East
, my first choice
and Northumbria as my area. Dr SA -GPST Entry Resit - Round 2 2014
"Thank you Gillian and Emedica. From this course I secured my first choice deanery and my first preference."
"It really focused me on my weakness. The session was very much tailored to me and having specific feedback it was useful to know what I did well and also very good that if I didn't do something well, I was told straight to my face. This ensured I improved well. I would you recommend this course to colleagues."
