MRCP Teaches More Than It Tests

By current evolution of exam system by the Royal College, practical exam (PACES) already overcome the artificial barriers of candidates performances. Examiner`s role in PACES is really secondary. A candidate faces the clinical cases like a real life problems. Examiners only try to fill the gaps in clinical consultations & examinations.

A clinician must need 7 skills to face any clinical problem. These are

1. Physical examination
2. Identifying physical signs
3. Clinical communications
4. Differential diagnoses
5. Clinical judgment
6. Managing patient concerns
7. Maintaining patient welfare.

To be a successful candidate, an examinee is to score well in all 7 skills. This is the secret of successful achievement in the exam. This achievement is guiding a medical professional in a holistic manner to bring the best outcome for the patient.

How To Get Prepared For PACES

Better to be in a group. Three members group is the best one so that each one can play role as Examiner, Candidate and Patient in a sequence. Make video of your performance and criticize after the episode.

Make the environment as similar as PACES. Be friendly to use sanitizer, follow the allocated time, use appropriate instruments etc.

Make variations during rehearsal. For example- practice History, Communication station at one half the day AND practice clinical station at other half.

If possible, get help from Seniors who already passed MRCP. Get relaxed on the day before exam.
