Course details

This course has been organised together with Cardiff medsoc at a specially discounted price. It is specifically for Cardiff medical students approaching their Progress Test. Quite unlike any other revision course, Progress Test 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.


Dr. Fiona Trew
BSc (Hons) MBChB

Fiona is a junior doctor in Manchester. She spent her first three pre-clinical years at St Andrews gaining a First Class Honours and a University of St Andrews medal, awarded to the top three students. She went on to study her clinical years at Edinburgh where she graduated with Honours, multiple distinctions and was awarded the Scottish Association for the Medical Education of Women Prize for the most distinguished female student over the 5 years of MBChB.

Fiona has always been passionate about teaching. Throughout university, she was actively involved in the peer assisted learning scheme (PALs), and as a doctor has set up a consolidation teaching programme for new FY1 doctors starting in the trust.

  • Kept us engaged the whole time.

    Thank you for your incredible knowledge and explanations. Very very useful and interesting cases which were really well explained with great handouts!

  • 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!

  • Overall it was great!

    Handouts are great quality and a lot of effort has been put into making this course what it is. Worth every single penny paid!

    2nd year at Warwick
  • 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!

    3rd year at Keele
  • Brilliant!

    Amazing coverage of topics in an engaging way.

    5th Year
  • 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.

    3rd year St Georges
  • 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!

    3rd year at Manchester
  • 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.

    2nd year at Swansea
  • I feel much more confident for exams

    The cases are really interesting and engaging. Great teaching: clear, thorough, knowledgeable and personable.
