Intensive SCA coaching dedicated to helping you boost your scores

Our 1 to 1 coaching service is led by Alastair Imrie. He has worked in medical education for over 20 years. Alastair has extensive experience in helping doctors improve their consulting and to pass a variety of postgraduate medical examinations. He has worked as a professional simulated patient and course facilitators for various deaneries, medical schools and postgraduate examinations and has been a facilitator at the Emedica CSA course since 2008. We have helped many candidated prepare for the MRCGP CSA / RCA - both prior to their 1st attempts, and in many cases when preparing to resit the exam. Alastair has had extensive training in how RCGP mark schemes are constructed.

Cases are carried out in a realistic setting, and timed just like the real exam. You will have up to 3 minutes to read the case notes, and then up to 12 minutes for the case. This will be followed by detailed feedback - typically 5 - 15 minutes per case depending on how you do and how many areas for improvement are identified. In some cases, you will go over specific parts of the case again to help you improve.

You will receive feedback on all 3 domains assessed in the SCA - data gathering + diagnosis, clinical management + complexity, and relating to others / interpersonal skills, with an emphasis on improving communication and consultation skills for real life practice as well as the exam.

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

You will also be sent links to video recordings of your feedback to enhance your learning after the session.

Each Zoom session lasts for 1 hour and will include 2-3 cases with detailed feedback per session. Each booking consists of 2 x 1 hour Zoom sessions - we recommend you allow time after session 1 to work on the areas ifentified before having session 2.

Feedback from previous 1 to 1 coaching sessions

“Thankyou for all your help. I passed Alhamdulillah with 97/126 marks. Your Emedica cases were the most helpful! I also did a session with Alastair which was great.” Dr S K - Passed SCA

“I did a 1-1 session with Dr Alastair in Feb before my SCA in March. I just wanted to say that it really helped me pass my SCA exam! So thank you to Dr Alastair for his detailed and truthful feedback.” Dr N B - Passed SCA

“Thank you for the really well run SCA session. I learnt at lot from the session along with the intensive course with Dr Imri. I passed my SCA with marks of 96.5/126. This is an improvement from my first exam in November when I had failed my exam by 2 marks. Keep up the good work.” Dr E B - Passed SCA

“I have passed the SCA exam in first trial last February. I feel the SCA scenarios in Emedica were very useful as well as the one to one coaching. They were varied and covered multiple areas in the curriculum. I felt the 100 case book was useful and was one of my resources to revise in addition to the CKS guide lines.” Dr H R - Passed SCA

“Thanks Emedica for the amazing course of SCA. I most appreciated the one to one mocks with Alistar, also the 100 cases and the Emedica cases were so useful and close to the exam. I have passed my SCA first attempt and I’m IMG, really thank you.” Dr L I - Passed SCA

“I’m delighted to report I passed first time scoring 86.5 out of 126… So glad I did the course and the 1 to 1 with Alastair. I don’t think I would have passed otherwise…A massive thank you to Alastair for boosting my confidence and focussing on red flags/history which was my weakest area at the time. I used Emedica for both AKT and SCA and passed first time each. Money well spent.” Dr S S - Passed SCA

“I attended both the SCA course and did some 1:1 coaching sessions through yourselves as well. Both were excellent and I'm delighted to let you know I PASSED!” Dr C C - Passed SCA

“I would like to thank you for all your help with my SCA. I passed alhamdulillah first attempt with 97.5 and found your courses and cases so useful! May Allah bless you for all your help and support!! I also wondered if you could thank Dr Alastair for me, he was a great help and role model for me and I wish him the very happiest for all he did for me!” Dr N S - Passed SCA

"I attended a 1-to-1 revision session with Alastair Imrie on 13th May, and I am very pleased to say that I passed ...I found Dr Rahman's online videos and the online revision case package helpful, but I think my session with Alastair was particularly helpful in highlighting weaknesses which I was able to improve upon. I would highly recommend him!"

DR M H - Passed CSA

"I was successful this time. I got 84. I did a one to one session with Alistair which was brilliant. He was the first person that told me I was actually doing things wrong and the first person to give me a clear structure for management. He worked with me to get me to do things in the correct way."

Dr H H - Passed CSA

I really want to say a big thank you to Emedica, especially to Dr Rahman and Alastair for all their help and support. I got 91 in the CSA, first attempt. The main course was an excellent introduction to CSA, complimented by the brilliant 1to1 coaching sessions from Alastair. Alastair helped me to identify my weaker areas, and made useful suggestions to improve my performance. The coaching is highly professional, and I would definitely recommend it to other trainees.

Dr W K , KSS Deanery - Passed first attempt

"I attended the Emedica course in the first week of May and also attended 1-1 coaching by Alastair. Got the CSA results and I want to let you know that I have passed. Thank you so much for your help Dr Rahman and Alastair.I found the Emedica course case scenarios were hard when I attended, but that helped me prepare for the real exam! Thank You."

Dr M C - Passed CSA

"I passed and scored 86. I'm just so happy I passed first time. I could have done with more prep time as really started mastering the skills a couple of weeks before. But I passed so I'm very happy. The course and the session with Alastair was invaluable."

DR S H - CSA Candidate - Passed first attempt

Thank you to you and your team for your course and one-to-one coaching training, extremely pleased to say I have passed the CSA!! I found your courses and online resources invaluable when revising for CSA. I have also highly recommended your course (above others I went on) to my colleagues who will be taking CSA in the next year. Thank you once again and all the best!
