The book has been written in an easy to read style, with a focus on being an exam candidate’s companion for quick revision on the go.

This will provide a useful resource for both part 1 (MCQs, EMQs) as well as part 2 (Viva and Clinical) components of the exit examinations. It is an ideal companion to complement your preparation for the examination with the most useful information presented in the most succinct manner.

 

The authors are senior members of the FRCS Mentor Group who have between them ample up to date experience and knowledge with the Fellowship examination.
