Chertsey FRCS Course
Chertsey FRCS course
Mr Ziad Harb, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon
Mr Mohamed Imam, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon.
This is possibly the oldest FRCS course in the UK. It was originally started by the renowned Alan Graham Apley (1914- 1996), in 1948 and he taught and chaired it for 15 years.
A course that has been running for decades in Chertsey, Surrey, teaching orthopaedic surgeons for their final exams.
The course covers all aspects of orthopaedics with special focus on vivas and exam techniques. Lectures will highlight the salient features in every topic and will enable candidates to enrich their answers with the right “buzz words” and tips and tricks for mastering the exam.
There are interactive discussions, clinical case presentations that emphasize the tips and tricks of correct examination techniques, and a mock exam consisting of viva and short and intermediate cases in real exam style. Instant feedback is provided to candidates at the end of each session.
Candidates have ample opportunities throughout the course to put questions to the faculty, comprising of consultants and senior trainees (who have recently cleared the exams and are impatient to share their exam secrets).
This website is aimed at simplifying Postgraduate orthopaedic education and disseminating orthopaedic knowledge across the globe. Scientists at Orthopaedic Principles also understand a global paradigm shift towards Evidence Based Orthopaedics
