Primary FRCA VIVA Practice Day – Examiners

This viva practice day offers trainees about to sit the Primary FRCA viva with exam practice in a similar format to the real exam.  We invite trainees that have recently passed the Primary FRCA to give timed vivas similar to what they encountered in their exam.   We usually get through three full vivas during the course of the day, giving candidates invaluable practice just before their exam.

The success of this day relies on trainees volunteering to examine on it.  The viva day is regarded as regional teaching for appraisal purposes and all examiners will receive a certificate for their portfolio and a copy of the feedback from the day, which is usually excellent.

Primary OSCE Evening – Examiners

Primary OSCE preparation evening held three times per year to coincide with each of the Primary OSCE sittings. 12-15 stations to include the stations as allocated by the RCOA, each is based on previous exams and candidate feedback, manned, unmanned and resuscitation stations are covered.  Examiners are all post primary and include senior trainees and consultants, mark sheets and feedback are given at the end of each station.   Feedback from past candidates has always been positive, and trainees find the session realistic and helpful in preparing for the OSCE portion of the Primary exam.
