Course Details - Anatomy for MRCS OSCEs (Wade Programme in Surgical Anatomy)
Anatomy for MRCS OSCEs (Wade Programme in Surgical Anatomy)
This two-day revision course is aimed at CT1/ST1 and above, primarily those planning to sit the Intercollegiate MRCS Part B OSCE Examination. The aim of the course is to augment knowledge, and to facilitate the understanding and learning of surgically applied anatomy with hands-on, three-dimensional experience and discussion. The course is designed to allow small groups to work actively with cadaveric specimens and includes interactive sessions on surface anatomy and radiological anatomy.
Candidates taking the Intercollegiate MRCS Part B - OSCE Exam.
Relevant grades: FY1, FY2, CT1, CT2, ST1, ST2
The course, which uses an RCSEd MRCS Examination venue, is delivered by senior anatomists and senior Clinicians. Faculty includes those experienced in question writing and examining for the MRCS Part B. It will be delivered using presentations on concepts and anatomical principles not readily visible on the cadaver, and interactive small group tutorial demonstrations.
Faculty use a questioning approach to ensure continuous feedback. Sessions also cover surface anatomy and radiological anatomy on living models. The final afternoon consists of intensive one-to-one question and feedback sessions, and the opportunity to resolve any outstanding queries.
This course aims to fully help candidates prepare for the Anatomy component of the MRCS Part B, focusing on the core functional and surgically relevant anatomy for trainees. It is designed to help participants gain confidence in the recognition of structures and their relationships.
On completion of the course participants should be able to:
- Apply anatomy to clinical examination and to radiological investigations;
- Identify their strengths and weaknesses relating to anatomical knowledge.
