The MRCP (PACES) is a challenging examination as it requires both in-depth knowledge and the ability to present the selected case concisely and coherently. This essential revision aid is designed to help candidates achieve both aims whilst simultaneously being compact enough for ward use, and comprehensive enough for self-study.
The book incorporates the new Station 5 (brief clinical encounters), clinical information on the increasingly widespread use of biological therapies, a bank of clinical pictures, details of the latest investigations and management options, and questions reflecting both the standard and detail required for the exam and the new MRCP PACES marking structure.
Each chapter has been reviewed by consultants within the specialty, many of whom are Royal College examiners.
The cases, which mirror those most frequently encountered in the examination, are all set out in a standardised format, and include hints and tips as well as a summary of consolidated key learning points.
Each case contains a section on presentation which will aid the candidate in perfecting this skill. Although most appropriate for MRCP (PACES) examination candidates, the book?s clear structure and balance of detail and clarity make it useful reading for medical students and trainee physicians. It will also be an excellent resource for clinicians involved in teaching students and doctors.
