The intensive course is designed to prepare the candidate who is going to sit for the MRCOG Part 1 Examination soon. It is a revision course and the candidate is expected to have done some reading before subscribing for the course. The entire syllabus cannot be covered but the core areas as shown by the blueprint of the syllabus by the Royal College is covered. The modules include: Anatomy, Biochemistry, Embryology, Endocrinology, Epidemiology/Statistics, Genetics and Physiology for Paper One and Biophysics, Immunology, Microbiology, Pathology Pharmacology, Clinical Management and Data Interpretation for Paper Two.
Each module will start with a lecture that covers the core or “must know” knowledge the candidate must know before he or she enters the Examination Hall. To test his understanding of the subject, it will be followed by ample practice with single best answer (SBAs) questions on the topic. Notwithstanding, the candidate must supplement his or her knowledge with further reading. The RCOG website gives a list of useful reference books.
Please make the best of the Course and I wish you the best in your Examination.
