9 – 11 October 2020, Bangalore
This will be the 12th consecutive year that this highly successful bi-annual course will be held in Bangalore, in association with Bangalore RCOG Trust. The high demand for these courses means that we have decided to run these courses twice a year i.e. April and October in preparation for the Part III MRCOG exams dates in May and October.
We have devised a 3-day intensive course to concentrate on the Part III course which is the most difficult aspect of achieving the MRCOG degree for Indian candidates. This is particularly so as exposure to the working NHS systems is lacking. Emphasis will be on a systematic approach to the Part III exam. The 3-day intensive course will start at 0830 hours to 1700 hours (and possibly beyond), which will include a full practice OSCE circuit, where individual feedback will be given.
The Chancery Hotel, 10/6 Lavelle Road, Bangalore, 560001, India
IMPORTANT: Please note there is a sister hotel called Chancery Pavilion on Residency Road. This is NOT the correct hotel for the course. Please make sure that you ask for ‘The Chancery’ on Lavelle Road for hotel bookings and airport transfers.
This course is for all those candidates who are preparing for the MRCOG Part III examination, especially the ones who are not working in the UK.
We will provide guidance with a series of lectures on difficult topics. The focus of this course is to give candidates on the way British graduates think and answer written and verbal questions and how they manage in the clinical context. You will be expected to think in this way and rely upon having read some background on UK guidelines which form a basic platform for UK practice. If you are not able to prepare beforehand then this course will give you a major indication of what you would need to do to achieve a good level of understanding and what is required to pass the exam.
The course timetable is a FULL day for each day and therefore please do not book your return flights before 8pm on the last day.
