Blackpool Victoria Hospital, Blackpool

I think the course was incredibly well organised, the facilities were great and the prosecutions were of avery good standard. There was a wide range of faculty from those who had recent exam experience tothose with a wealth of knowledge and surgical experience.

Very well-organised and comprehensive course, perfect as preparation for the anatomy part of MRCS.Good time-keeping on the whole but unfortunately ran out of time on a couple of stations (brain/ANS).Would also be helpful to still be able to access the pre-course videos and the spotter presentation onlineafterwards (don't think these are available currently). Thank you to all the teachers and organisers!

Superb course. Concise, trainers had excellent knowledge and teaching skills. Very relevant for exam -protection teaching especially. Well structured. Good feedback from trainers.

MD
Royal Sussex County Hospital, Brighton

Enthusiastic and knowledgable faculty, very relevant material.

MH
Bristol Royal Infirmary, Bristol

The orthopaedic sections were a bit of a mess with too many tutors standing around while Mr Tandonwouldn't let anyone else speak. I also found his manner and approach rather antiquated and notparticularly helpful when we are trying to learn.

EB

Excellent tutors and level of teaching. Very relevant and useful.

MH
Kettering General Hospital, Kettering, UK

The senior lecturers were excellent at teaching, it was occasionally frustrating that they gave the sessionto a junior lecturer to give and were not present.

MM
St Vincent's University Hospital Dublin

Excellent and friendly faculty. Mock OSCE was extremely valuable in allowing me to consolidate theknowledge I have gained throughout the course. The feedback form gave a much needed boost ofconfidence in my anatomy knowledge and that I could focus on other areas relevant to the MRCS Part B.

An excellent course that has helped me to plan my revision.

I attended your MRCS Part B anatomy and clinical skills revision courses. I found the anatomy course particularly useful - the demonstrators were fantastic teachers and the use of prosections really helped to refresh the anatomy. I truly believe that the course helped me to pass the exam. I would also be interested in getting involved with your surgical teaching events in the future.

ZP
Hillingdon Hospital, Uxbridge

I passed the MRCS on my first attempt. I found the course very useful, particularly the anatomy days in showing me the standard required to pass the exam and providing a list of common exam topics.

Happy to say that I passed the exam. I felt the course was very useful, and a few of the stations were quite close to what came up on the exam. I'd be very keen to participate in future courses. I noted that there were some core trainees present as observers/ people giving their experience of the exam at the last course, and would be keen to become involved in this regard, or in any other course/ role that would be useful.

GS
Countess of Chester Hospital, Chester

I passed! I attended the full 5 days after previously failing the part B. I was very impressed by the dedication of the tutors to get us to a standard where we would pass well. I have no doubt that this course made a big difference in my result. I wish I had not listened to previous advice that I would 'not need a course'. Please pass on my gratitude to Stuart, your plastics reg, who went above and beyond to ensure our courses ran smoothly.

AH
The London Clinic, United Kingdom

I have passed the exam! Thank you very much. The Cardiff MRCS course is easily the best I have done (compared to Insider, PasTest etc). The anatomy course was simply excellent! Overall, I am very pleased I attended the course and I truly think that it was the only course that actually helped me. The one day intensive anatomy revision day was an excellent idea and I would strongly encourage keeping it as part of the main stream course. That was also invaluable! I would certainly be interested in getting involved in future teaching sessions. I have highly recommended the course to all my colleagues sitting the exam! Best wishes and again many thanks for the help I received.

NM
Queen's Medical Centre, Nottingham

I am very glad that passed the exam! I found the course very useful, great opportunity to view prosections prior to the exam. I also did the critical care course, which was also an excellent revision tool. I would also be interested in helping out with any future courses if opportunities arise. I am particularly keen to teach anatomy.Thank you once again!

SJ
Morriston Hospital, Swansea

I am pleased to say that I passed. I found the course very useful indeed and would highly recommend it to fellow trainees. The anatomy course although very intensive was not at all boring and was very succinct. I would love to help on the course if any opportunities arose. Many thanks for an excellent course.

AB
Royal Glamorgan Hospital, United Kingdom

I am happy to say I passed my MRCS examination with the Edinburgh College held in Sheffield on 13/10/11. The content of critical care course was relevant and lecture notes were very useful. I enjoyed the anatomy course days and felt they were good practice with cadaveric experience. I would definitely be interested in teaching on the course.

RH
Prince Charles Hospital, Wales

I am happy to say that I passed the exam! My personal highlight would be the amount of time doing anatomy dissection and being able to view and hold cadaveric material. I would be happy to teach on a course in the future if you would like. Many thanks for a great course!

JN
Birmingham Heartlands Hospital, United Kingdom

I was successful in passing my MRCS Part B and I thought your Anatomy Course was excellent. I have recommended it to all my colleagues who are due to sit the exam in future. I thought the course covered everything in more than enough detail. I have no suggestions other than to emphasise that all my anatomy stations started with simple questions then linked to clinical scenarios. Many thanks.

MJ
Morriston Hospital, Swansea

Thank goodness, I passed! I actually did quite well in the exam, and I think your course was superb! I have already recommended it to several of my friends. I was extremely concerned beforehand that it was going to demoralise me OSCE! Thanks for a great course!

VD
Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Gateshead

I am glad to report that I passed the part B. I thought that the course was well organised and I have recommended it to friends. The mock OSCE on the final day was really helpful and the mark sheet helped me to focus my study in the last couple of weeks. Although very intense, the critical care course was pitched at the right level and I achieved around 95% in this element of the exam.

JW
Royal Glamorgan Hospital, United Kingdom

I can tell you with great pleasure that I have passed the exam. This was my first attempt and would like to take this opportunity to thank all the staff who organised and taught on the anatomy course as it was extremely useful for the exam.
