Welsh FRCS Viva General Surgery Course
31 August 2019
This hugely popular course is returning for a second time following the pilot course in January 2019 and now endorsed by the Welsh Surgical Society. This cost of the course has now reduced significantly too.
Pairs of trainees will rotate through a series of stations over the course of the day. All faculty members will hold FRCS or FRCA. A delegate:faculty ratio of 2:1 is aimed at. Each viva or clinical station will be 30mins length. For the viva station each trainee will have 2 x 5mins vivas with 5 minutes for feedback/discussion within that station:
- General Surgery viva
- Emergency general surgery viva
- Critical care viva
- Specialist interest viva
- Basic sciences (specialist interest) viva
For the clinical stations each trainee will have 2 x 5mins ‘short case’ using clinical or
radiological images instead of patients for the station with 5 minutes for
feedback/discussion within that station
- Clinicals- general surgery
- Clinicals- specialist interest
For the academic paper each trainee will be given 30 mins to read through the paper then
15mins of questions on the paper.
