Cambridge Course

Cambridge MRCPsych Critical Review Course


Designed for MRCPsych Paper B
 

Saturday 16th & Sunday 17th September 2017



Dr. Paul Wilkinson, University Lecturer and Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist at the University of Cambridge, will deliver this weekend course. He has been running a crash course for the MRCPsych Critical Appraisal exams since 2003.  Due to a recent increase in demand, this course will continue to run twice per year.


This course will thoroughly prepare candidates for the epidemiology, statistics and research methodology components of the MRCPsych Paper B.  The RCPsych curriculum for Critical Review will be used as a basis for what is taught.  The course will teach General Research Methodology and all specific research types e.g. RCTs, health economics, aetiology, qualitative research etc.  After each mini topic there will be MCQ/ EMQ practice and discussion.  The course will cover all statistical tests that are likely to come up in the exam, e.g. Mann-Whitney, multiple regression, and discuss how to interpret them and answer questions on them.  The statistics will be scattered through the day, presented together with the relevant study design, to keep it in small doses!  Teaching will include essential calculations e.g. NNT, sensitivity, specificity, likelihood ratio.  Candidates will have plenty of opportunities to practise these calculations.  The course will conclude with MCQs and EMIQs that test knowledge across study designs e.g. Which is the best statistical test to use in a specific situation?  What type of bias would occur in this situation?  Which is the most appropriate study design?  And finally there will be some practice on the sets of questions that accompany an excerpt from a real research paper.

 

We shall use a bank of more than 300 questions including MCQs and EMIQs from recent exams, the pilot exams, questions adapted from the old-style exam and questions written by the Cambridge team.  Full paper handouts will be given of questions; answers and explanations; and slides used to teach theoretical material.  Some questions will be sent to candidates before the course, so they can try them in advance if they so wish.

 

 

Fee: £300  (£240 for internal Cambridge MRCPsych course candidates)

We offer a reduced fee of £200 (£160 for internals) for candidates coming to the course on a second occasion.

Maudsley Simulation is the UK’s first simulation training centre focusing on mental health with the aim of improving services for all who are affected or impacted by mental health issues. Since 2014 working as part of South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, we have successfully developed a range of new simulation training courses which you can browse our website for more information.

To develop our courses, we have concentrated on a wide variety of settings and have worked with a range of other organisations to provide a portfolio of courses of which we are extremely proud.

This one-day simulation course is aimed at core trainees who are preparing for the MRCPsych CASC exam. The course focuses on clinical skills necessary to pass the CASC exam. It evolves from the tasks of history taking and risk assessment, case formulation and differential diagnosis to treatment planning and management of more difficult cases. The course will help improve candidates' confidence and other professional skills such as communication, stress management and maintaining control of an interview. Candidates will leave the day with tips on how to successfully pass the exam.

Morpho ThinkersMorpho Thinkers | London

CASC examinations can be highly competitive and you will be faced with pressures that you have not encountered. To help you excel in your examination, we have developed a range of modules over two days that will enhance and equip you with all the necessary skills required. The detailed two day programme can be accessed here
http://www.morphothinkers.co.uk/programme.html.

This course has been conducted in London and Dublin and is structured in a manner as to help the psychiatry trainees who are planning to attempt the Royal College of Psychiatry CASC examination.
However, its principles and methodology are so very robust and scientific that its benefits are far more generalised if you want it to be.

The focus of the course is on verbal and non-verbal communication skills along with improving your skills in speed reading,
comprehension, time and anxiety management and boosting your self confidence. Studies show that these skills that are absolutely essential for the exam can be taught and learnt. However, you would require as much practice as you can get so that such skills become “natural” for you and you don’t have to stress yourself by trying to learn them a few weeks before the examination and “remember to act in a certain way”. Evidence suggests that you need to consistently practice between 3 to 6 months for good outcomes. So why not practice in the right way and make it a habit?

In addition to the benefits of the high quality course and its fantastic “take away” content, we aim to continue supporting you till you pass the CASC examination. For further details please refer to http://www.morphothinkers.co.uk/faq.html.

Maximum delegates per course is 10, thus courses get booked very quickly. So please visit the website to view more dates that may be convenient for you.

London CASCThe London CASC | London

The London CASC is set in West Middlesex University Hospital in West London near to Heathrow Airport.

Over the last several years it has become known to those who have attended as an intensely personal course that focuses on the candidates needs and offers not just quantity of stations to practice, but also quality in the discussions that follow each one. Not just a pass or fail but real in depth feedback on all aspects of the station. We concentrate on having small groups of 3 or 4 going through stations one by one with professional actors.

On Single station days you will be performing at least 1 in 3 stations and on Linked station days 1 in 2 stations, with 56 (you perform 23) stations carried out over an entire weekend. We believe small is best and that’s why we limit our group sizes so much. With just a few examiners all day, we also get to know you and your strengths and weaknesses. We’re proud of our testimonials and high pass rates (62%) and the personal, individual feel that our course gives to all those who have attended. Please have a look at us, at www.thelondoncasc.co.uk and we wish you luck in the coming exam.

CNWL CASC Revision CourseCNWL CASC Revision Course | London

In contrast to traditional CASC courses we have developed a course where trainees review their own performance as well as that of other trainees by videotaping CASC stations. Trainees are encouraged to think like CASC examiners so that they develop a greater understanding of how to improve their performance. Observational learning from videotaped scenarios are a powerful tool in gaining confidence and skills to pass the CASC and provide a novel approach that many other CASC courses do not offer.

The course begins with an introduction to the examiner's perspective and subsequently a simulated station will be videotaped for each participant. The course is run by 2 enthusiastic and experienced CASC examiners and takes place over 2 days. Due to the intensive nature of the course we can only accommodate 12 participants per day.

Next Course (Updated 3/5/13) Cost:
24-25 June 2013

£225 per day

Cardiff CASC Training (CCT) leads the CASC exam training in Wales. We regularly organise CASC training in the form of CASC Workshop and Mock Exams, throughout the year.

We recently launched first-ever Mini-CASC Workshop, designed specifically to address pertinent issues related to communication skills. The CASC training events are tailored to help the candidates develop the necessary skills and competencies required to pass the Royal College exam. These sessions have gained a keen interest from psychiatrists all across the region.

 

The course is currently not running for the September 2013 diet. Further details will be updated when it is running again.
