About this event

  • Date and time Thu 7 Jul 2022 from 6:30pm to 8 Jul 2022 at 8:30pm
  • Location Online
  • Organised by Respiratory Medicine

Register for this 10-week virtual course aimed at Respiratory Specialist Trainees sitting their Speciality Certificate Examination exam (SCE) hosted by the RSM Respiratory Medicine Section. The topics covered will sample the JRCPTB curriculum and include obstructive airway disease, pleural disease, pulmonary infection, pulmonary vascular disease, lung cancer, interstitial lung disease, lung physiology and interpretation of thoracic CT imaging*. The course may also be of interest to General Internal Medicine Trainees or doctors considering a career in Respiratory Medicine. 

The cost for the 10-week course is £150 for RSM members and £200 for non-members. In order to subsidise costs further for RSM members as a token of appreciation for their contribution to the RSM, the Respiratory Medicine Section will contribute towards this fee thus reducing the overall cost to £120 for RSM members.

Aims for this event include: 

  • To improve knowledge within the main topics in the Respiratory curriculum relevant for the exam 
  • To guide the application of relevant guidelines to clinical scenarios  
  • To increase confidence in sitting and passing the SCE exam  

Comments from course attendees last year:

"I think this course was pivotal for me passing my SCE. It gave me a structure and anchor to base my revision around. The recordings sent after the course were immense! Thank you for organising this."  

"Excellent course covering a good part of the curriculum. Good value for money. Well organised."

"The speakers were excellent and definitely helped having some guidance on which topics would come up on the exam"


*The agenda for this event offers a provisional timetable and sessions may change.

This webinar is available for on-demand viewing.  All session recordings will be available for two weeks after the final live webinar broadcast via Zoom. The link will be sent 24 hours after the webinar takes place.
