This is a free course, run for Imperial trainees who are preparing to take the Final FRCA SOE, and comprises structured oral viva sessions covering long and short cases, in addition to basic sciences.  It is run by Imperial School of Anaesthesia Consultants and ST5-7 Registrars on Saturday mornings at Charing Cross hospital.

The course objectives are:

  • To improve viva technique (rather than knowledge) required for the Final FRCA SOE e.g. structure, paraphrasing, body language, posture etc.
  • To introduce you to colleagues at different hospitals who you can practice with away from the course
  • To give appropriate and relevant feedback to participants
  • To allow you the opportunity to ask questions to assist you with your exam preparation
