Course details

This course is being hosted in partnership with Birmingham MedSoc, although you do not have to be at Birmingham University to attend.
Quite unlike any other revision course, Clinical Cases is crafted from 25 patient scenarios that integrate together the entire MBBS/MBChB medical and surgical curriculum.

The cases and teaching act as a bridge that link together the thousands of facts you have accumulated through your studies. This course does not regurgitate lists and is the opposite of ‘death by powerpoint’. Instead both days are dynamic and interactive. We will teach you by connecting clinical information together, thus replicating the thought process of your examiner and more importantly of a junior doctor seeing real patients.

In addition, you can re-watch all the lectures online and consolidate your learning with 500 Single Best Answer questions and 100 ECG questions and revise from the 200 page colour textbook.

By the end of the weekend, no matter what clinical year you are in, we guarantee that you will walk out feeling far more prepared and confident in passing both your written and OSCE exams.

  • Jake is incredibly knowledgable.

    Excellent. Perfect pace, pitched at the perfect level. Jake is incredibly knowledgable and clear. He presents without notes or looking at the slides. The cases are cleverly integrated to cover so many different diseases.

  • Would definitely recommend to a friend!

    Really enjoyed this course, despite being very intense the lecturer did a great job of making it fun and interactive. I greatly appreciated that the cases were more challenging and didn't just cover the "basic" presentations, but a lot of finer points likely to come up in MCQs!

  • Loved the lectures and books.

    Really enjoyed working through cases and that they covered several conditions in each (plus the differentials!) Thank you! Some of the best teaching I've had at medical school!

    Dr Mann’s medical knowledge is phenomenal and his ability to answer any of my question from virtually every topic is outstanding.

  • An amazing course and amazing teaching.

    You can tell Dr Mann is extremely knowledgable as he explains everything thoroughly. Very interactive and not once in the two days did I feel bored even though so much content was covered.

  • Excellent course!

    I think the timing and number of cases was great and the content was easy to understand, follow and remember. Really made us think about differentials and brought loads of different areas of medicine together in every case.

  • Thoroughly enjoyable and a great primer to further revision.

    Approach using cases to narrate a story of disease and clinical medicine was far more memorable and engaging than any other lecture approach I've come across before. A massive thank you!

    Elena

  • Brilliant!

    The lecturer was phenomenal and the cases really well structured to get us quickly making the connections between different aspects of medicine, surgery and data interpretation. Great preparation for my exams!

  • It boosted my confidence!

    I was dreading the weekend as I went in tired, stressed, and worried it would make me feel more overwhelmed. Quite the opposite happened. The teaching was superb and the exam tips especially useful. It helped clarify what I do and do not understand and boosted my confidence.
