Medical finals looming? Bored of memorising and rote learning? It’s ok, we understand the enormity of your stress levels.

Join us for a study weekend and polish your medical knowledge in time for your exams. We have created a programme that follows a case-based discussion to get your brain ticking.

Medical finals want you to start thinking like a doctor because you will be one very soon. The aim of this study weekend is to look at common presentations you will come across (both in exams and in practice) and start thinking about differentials, investigations and management. 

This two-day event aims to help you prepare for your exams by covering subject matter in medicine, surgery and psychiatry that are common and important for their examinations (particularly the written portion) and in clinical practice. These are delivered in the form of presentations that are both comprehensive yet applicable by eminent professionals in this field.

Delegates can look forward to:

  • Lectures by experts and experienced professionals on all the key disciplines, with key facts for exams, tips and insight key for clinical practice
  • Interactive Q&A sessions for each speciality
  • Exam-style questions and clinical example on ECGs
  • Building confidence for examinations and clinical practice in these disciplines.
