Final MB MCQ / EMQ Course in Medicine

Course Structure

With the volume of factual information involved in medical examinations, both as an undergraduate and at post graduate level (unfortunately it is virtually impossible to avoid post grad exams of some description nowadays) and the competitive nature of all examinations (even criterion referenced exams), study courses are a valuable means of rapidly accumulating relevant knowledge to give you the advantage.

Following the great success of our courses in 2002 to 2010 we are pleased to be running an expanded set of courses for 2011. The increasing emphasis on visually presented material in examinations has led to the expansion of this section of the course day.

The format will be that of fast running information and discussion centred on typical past questions. Diagnosis, data interpretation, investigation and management of virtually all key topics will be covered. This has proved highly effective and popular. We like to encourage the atmosphere akin to that of a large tutorial, and questions are encouraged.

Pre-course work material will be sent to all applicants approximately 2 weeks prior to the course date, and a course folder containing questions and answers will be issued on the day. Usually it is not possible to cover all the information in the folders and candidates are left to finish these in their own time with the help of our extended answers contained in the course folders.

Both Tom and I will be happy to answer any queries prior to booking a place. Please contact us by email, telephone or post (details may be found on the booking page).
