About the programme

This is an intensive 1-day clinical course limited to 30-40 candidates preparing for the MRCP PACES clinical examination, now in its 12th year. The course has received consistently outstanding feedback, with 90-96% candidates rating the course as 'excellent' or 'very good' overall. 

The programme consists of a wide range of clinical neurology cases likely to be encountered in the PACES exam. Candidates are tutored in small groups (target ratio 4-5:1), with candidates taking turns at the clinical stations to ensure that each candidate has adequate examination practice during the day.





The day opens with a supporting talk on how to approach the neurology station of the PACES exam. This course focuses on providing instruction and examination preparation in neurological examination and presentation of findings.
