Course details

You read that correctly, this course is completely free for medics in any year from any university!
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, 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.

  • 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.
