Physics & Measurement for the primary FRCA
“I wouldn’t have passed if I hadn’t attended the course”.
||Dr Sonja Meier, locum Consultant in Anaesthesia, UCLH|
|About the Course||
This course is for trainee anaesthetists planning to sit the FRCA Primary Examinations during 2012.
It will cover the bulk of the physics and measurement curriculum, and will be conducted in an informal way, with delegates limited to a maximum of 12, promoting active participation by all.
Delegates will gain maximum benefit by being well prepared, and will be asked to attempt a few multiple choice questions before every learning session.
Each 2 hour session, led by a consultant and a senior trainee, will start at 6pm, with a short snack break.
