RCP PACES masterclass

This course was created specifically to support candidates with preparation for their MRCP(UK) PACES exam: the practical assessment of clinical examination skills.

Combining useful tips, practical advice and examples to support your revision, this easy-to-navigate course will assist with all your preparation needs.

You can purchase PACES masterclass in a discounted package, alongside the Part 1 and 2 question banks here.

Virtual PACES revision course

The virtual PACES revision course has been designed by previous PACES examiners and will be delivered by senior clinicians who have experience in examining.

The course will focus on stations 1, 3 and 5 of the PACES exam:

•    Station 1 (respiratory and abdominal examinations)
•    Station 3 (cardiovascular and neurological examinations)
•    Station 5 (brief clinical consultations). 

The course will support delegates to understand the structure of the examination, highlight common errors and pitfalls, and offer the opportunity to discuss the approach to the physical examination cases encountered in the real exam. Completing this course will help your preparation to be even more effective.

Pre-recorded physical examinations have been made to replicate the stations of the real exam, and additional video and audio resources will be used to aid learning. You will have an opportunity to contribute actively, such as practising presenting cases, discussing differential diagnoses, or explaining how you would approach a particular station. 

This course will be delivered through the RCP’s purpose-built online teaching platform. Delegates will divide into small groups to facilitate interaction and discussion with the senior clinical tutors. 

A private teaching ‘classroom’ will be created two weeks prior to the course delivery date, and delegates will be provided with the link and log-in details. The RCP will provide online access support for delegates attending the training.

We will be delivering our next revision course ahead of diet 2 examinations. You can register your interest by emailing us.
