Communication, Consultation & Management Skills
for MRCPCH course

Held at Northwick Park Hospital

'The Original and Best'

We were the first to organise a dedicated communication skills course for the MRCPCH clinical exam, to coincide with the first sitting of the new style examination in October 2004. The decision to dedicate a whole course to communications skills has been vindicated by the high failure rates amongst candidates unprepared for this element of the exam. Following our success, we have joined with the organisers of the Imperial College Clinical course and added an additional day. This allows us to focus on the other skills that candidates need to pass the new clinical exam stations. Further details of course content and course directors are available on this site.

The course runs over 2 days:
Day 1 - Consultation, Management & Clinical Videos
Day 2 - Communication Skills

In order to ensure the course fee is kept to a minimum, we don't usually advertise our course. Our reputation alone has been enough to ensure our ongoing success.

All our examiners have been specifically trained for the new style examination. All our candidates obtain small group tuition and individual feedback. We take candidate feedback very seriously and request written evaluation from all attendees. We are delighted that we have maintained a 100% positive response when we ask candidates if they would recommend the course to a friend.

Sorry, this course is currently unavailable.

What previous candidates had to say:

"By far the best course I have attended"
"Excellent teaching environment - examiners very supportive"
"I failed last time because of my communication skills - I truly believe this won't happen again"
