The Royal College of Physicians recommend that all candidates prepare for the MRCP PACES exams by gaining clinical experience in hospital training posts involving the care of emergency medical patients. Unfortunately it can be tricky to get exposure to and training in certain conditions whilst undertaking service provision leaving you to rely on 'being lucky' and have to take advantage of opportunities to examine patients with certain signs. This is a very sporadic way of learning and can leave some people with gaps in their clinical exposure. One of the 'feared' stations in the MRCP Paces exam by prospective candidates relates to Cardiology as although some conditions are very common, most of them are not.
At the CardiologyPACES course you will get an opportunity examine every type of murmur that can come up in the MRCP exam and examine a wide variety of extra-cardiac signs. We are sure we have signs and conditions you have only read about.
This course is not only great for PACES candidates, but will build your clinical accumen in cardiology and will also work great for people wanting to pursue a career in cardiology or want to be more confident in their clinical practice in relation to cardiovascular examination and findings.
Our course prides itself on the our fantastic Candidate to Patient/Tutor ratio's which enables us to deliver fantastic teaching. For this reason, we can only accomodate for 20 candidates on each course. We only run one course per MRCP PACES Examination Diet (3 courses per year) so please book early to avoid disappointment.
