This Part 3 Clinical Skills Course will give delegates a unique opportunity to practise and rehearse the clinical tasks set down in the new MRCOG Part 3 oral examination. There will be two different circuits, each with 14 active stations where you will receive individual feedback after each of the tasks from the examiners, some of which will use local role players and lay examiners.

A new interative session will give delegates the opportunity to work through a separate set of circuit questions in a group seeting along with workshop-based sessions incorporating communication skills with patients and colleagues, issues of patient safety, applied clinical knowledfe and information gathering using differenet task materials to increase the delegate's exposure to more questions.

Vidoes of different tasks will also be presented and discussed to highlight the important components in each domain required of the examination. Exposure to the various types of activities above will help delegates reflect on individual strengths and identify areas for improvement and further practice.

Places on this course are strictly limited to 28 full participants and will be allocated on a ‘first-come-first-serve’ basis.

This year, we are also introducing observer places on this course due to an overwhelming response for our previous course. Obsercers will receive the opportunities to attend lectures, workshops, observe the mock examination circuit and participate in the interactive sessions. Observer places on this course are strictly limited to 14 and will be allocated on a 'first-come-first-serve' basis.
 
Before this event, COGS will be organising the 19th Regional MRCOG Part 2 Examination Course on 22nd and 23rd November 2018 in Singapore at the same location.
