PACES MRCP UK - Where MRCPians Meet Since 2006

MRCP is well establised as an entry exam for advanced specialist training in many countries including Malaysia. It consists of 3 paper i.e. Part1, Part2(written tests) and PACES. PACES in full means Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills. It is the third part and the candidate is assessed by fellows of RCP. I passed my PACES in 2005. I am glad that many seniors had guided me throughout my preparation for PACES and I wish to share my experiences with PACES candidates via this blog.

"4C rule for PACES"

Many seniors always remind me that PACES is a showmanship about your clinical skills. As a PACES candidate, you need to acquire the skill of "bluffology" in order to convince the fellows that you can join them as a member in RCP. However, this is not easily done if your thoughts are disorganized especially during that stressful important exam day!
One of my senior actually taught me to think and summarize the findings according to 4C rule.
C: Condition
C: Cause
C: Complications
C: funtional Capacity
