FAQ on Spectrum MRCOG Part 3 Course

Our course addresses the needs of both these types of candidates. We start from “Where to start” and then conduct the workshops and demonstrate what you should do in the examination. Then we conduct the actual stations. You will achieve the perfection by practising both the basic and the harder clinical scenarios. The circuits (in presence of the role players and the lay examiners) will give you the hints about your level of preparation, with direct feedback from the number of clinical examiners. You will come to know how much additional effort you need to give. In our previous courses, there were both types of candidates. But all of them found that their needs were appropriately addressed.
You will get the ideas about “how to start”. The course will not only help to know “what resource materials are needed for your preparation”, but also “how to use these resource materials”, so that you can concentrate mainly on the areas which are very much favourite topics for the examiners. This will guide you to “make yourself perfect” within short period of time, despite your busy schedule. You will also get the follow up support by Whatsapp group, where you can practise, put your queries and all of these will be addressed regularly
Not at all. Most of the courses in the UK are conducted just before the examination. Even after attending the course, you still have more than two weeks time. This course will help you to clarify your concepts. You will come to know on which areas you need to give more importance. This course will emphasize on the areas, where the overseas candidates usually struggle a lot (clinical governance, teaching skills, labour management, referral pathways, consent, audit etc). There are certain areas which need fine tuning. These include communication with your consultant, filling up the documents, breaking bad news, managing the angry patients, supporting a junior colleague with difficulty and how to deal with a complaint. Additionally, you will find yourself in better position in managing the challenging stations. As the examination is knocking at the door, you may have additional queries, which will be addressed in the Whatsapp group discussion. The lay examiners and the role players, in addition to the clinical examiners, will expose you to the environment, just like the actual examination format.
We acknowledge that, nobody can pass a difficult examination like MRCOG, just after pursuing a number of courses. It’s eventually your hard work that counts. You have to practise regularly as much as possible. Having said that, all of the candidates preparing for the MRCOG from outside the UK, are busy in their clinical practice. Making time, out of the busy schedules, to attend the courses regularly, may not be feasible for most of them. In this two-day intensive course, you will get the opportunity to practise adequate number of stations to make yourself feel more confident. In addition, your way of talking, non-verbal communication, posture, empathy all will improve. In addition, the follow up discussion in Whatsapp group will give you the continuous feedback.
Please remember, knowledge plays minor role in Part 3 examination. It is mostly concerned about patient safety and communications. There is no didactic lecture in our course. You will not see any slides just copying the guidelines. All the 14 modules will be covered in the form of clinical scenarios. We know where most of the non-UK candidates make mistakes and therefore, we will address those areas specifically. So, after this course you will feel more confident and competent. where most of the non-UK candidates make mistakes while solving these questions. In addition, we will give you all the presentations in the pen drive. So, after the course, you will feel more confident while solving the SBAs and EMQs.
Probably you are aware that there are five domains in the Part 3 examinations- communication with colleagues and with patients, applied clinical knowledge, patient safety and information gathering. We know, your clinical knowledge is excellent because with that help you cracked the Part 2 examinations. But we will guide you how to apply it in the examination. Remember, each station consists of ten minutes. We will show you the tricks how to gather information in detailed but focussed manner without wasting much time. Patient safety is of paramount importance and nobody can pass the examination without taking proper care of this domain. The important safety points, which you “must not miss”, will be covered. Importantly, your communication skills will be judged and refined with the help of number of challenging clinical scenarios. In addition, the lay examiner and the clinical examiner will point out what are the “asteiix points” which determine the pass/ fail in each domain in each station.
In our course you will get exposed to number of models (sutures), mannequins (shoulder dystocia, breech etc) and instruments (Kiwi cup, forceps, surgical instruments), which are commonly used in the actual examination. Often the non-UK candidates find them difficult. You will get the opportunity to practise with them along with interaction with the faculties on these issues and this will help you build up your confidence
You do not need to worry at all. We will expose you to the number of such charts and pictures (CTG, urodynamics, MOEWS chart, NEWS chart, surgical check list, Dash Board, Audit, Labour ward list, OSATS form, Referral Letter, Discharge Letter, Incident form etc). Practising with them, with direct feedback from the clinical examiners will improve your skills to interpret these charts confident.
We also looked into this matter. You will get number of forms (consent form, prescription, referral letter, incident form, OSATS form etc) on which you have to practise your stations. The idea is to mimic the actual examination, as far as possible, so that you should not feel stressed when you encounter such forms in the actual examination.
We have the solution for it. Through different types of stations and the questions, you will get the idea how the questions are presented in the examination. We will also guide you how to collect the important messages from the questions which often consists of 3-4 pages.
We highly recommend you to attend this course. Not only this will help you to understand where the non-UK candidates commonly make mistakes, but also you will come to know which areas need improvement. In this course, you will understand how the systems work in the UK and what you “must know” to pass the examination.
