NW Part 3 Course
Drs. Lamiya Mohiyiddeen and Tom McFarlane will be running this course on Saturday 23rd. March 2019.
The course will be repeated in the Autumn of 2019.
Dr. Mohiyiddeen is a Part 3 examiner and Dr. McFarlane used to be an examiner.
The number of places on the course will be limited, so it will make sense to book early.
Venue: St. Mary's Hospital, Manchester.
Date: Saturday 23rd. March 2019.
The aim will allow time for those attending to correct problems before the exam on 29/30 April.
Sunday 24th. March 2019.
All being well, I plan to run an all-day tutorial on Sunday 24th. March.
We will discuss the stations and appropriate techniques.I'll be happy to discuss stations from other courses that people found problematic.
Most courses don't have time for this but most people found it useful with previous courses.
All being well, I will run a session on Sunday 24th.
We will start about 10.30 and previous session tended to end by 16.30.
I don't charge for this session, so those who attend get a 2-day course for the price of one!
Format: The plan for the Saturday is as follows - I'll update this information as things evolve.
There will be an introductory session in the morning.
This will detail the anatomy of the exam and what you need to know about the types of stations.
We will discuss the things you need to keep in mind to maximise your score.
We will have a few practice stations to illustrate key points.
The afternoon will feature a full circuit.
Each attendee will go round on their own and have to tackle all the stations.
(Some courses have attendees go round in pairs; active at half but just an observer at half.
Be careful before you book a course to know its exact composition.)
There will be feedback from the examiner at each station.
There will be a final feedback session with a general overview from the examiners.
Cost: The costs will be kept to a minimum to keep the price as low as possible.
Dr. Lamiya is working on the final costings and it looks as though the price will be ~ £400.
The information will be posted as soon as we have it.
Dr. Lamiya met with her site designer on Friday 14th. December.
He is going to update the website in the next few days.
You will then be able to book online.
Getting to St. Mary's:
There is advice on the hospital website.
There are a couple of large, multi-storey car parks on the St. Mary's / MRI site.
There should be plenty of available spaces at a weekend.
Advice about choosing a course:
There is advice about this on this website.
It was written for the OSCE and I'll need to find time to update it.
In general it makes sense to look at the courses that are nearest you.
You might be able to live at home and avoid hotel bills.
But, as noted above, make sure you know exactly what you are getting for your money.
