Course/Event Description

MRCP PACES Clinical Course (4 days) London

Our PACES courses have regularly been held at Professional Education Centres at Guy's Campus and University College Hospital in London.

In May and June 2024, we are holding courses at the Novotel London West.

Course Format and Content

The format and content of the PassPACES courses will be fully updated to reflect the new PACES23 examination format (PACES23 | MRCPUK), with an emphasis on the new Consultation Stations (2 and 5).

PACES Course timetable
Courses typically commence between 8.00 and 8.30am and finish at 5.00pm to permit an extra hour of teaching on each of the first three days. Teaching on these three days comprises four clinical sessions, each lasting one hour and 45 minutes, and includes demonstrations of clinical examination techniques relevant to that day's clinical sessions, e.g., Neurology and Ophthalmology on Day 1, Abdomen on Day 2 and Cardiology on Day 3.

Clinical stations involve structured bedside teaching with emphasis on technique and presentation.
Teaching takes place in small groups.

Mock Examination
On Day 4 each candidate will be given a Mock Examination which will comprise a 40-minute Clinical assessment on a 1 to 1 basis, covering the four main clinical stations (Cardiovascular, Respiratory, Abdomen and Neurology), followed by individual feedback.

Candidates will also be given Clinical Consultation (Stations 2 and 5) and Communication Skills (Stations 1 and 4) Mock Examinations.
