This course has been running since 1992 and is one of the leading courses in the country. Candidates have the opportunity to see over 100 system examinations (short cases), as well as receive advice on examination technique and skills for the exam.
I attended this course in last week of February this year and passed Paces in the first attempt from Glasgow on 24th March. Excellent course for seeing some rare cases, very encouraging tutors, gives you last minute tips and brush ups required to build up the confidence for the exam.DR. SEEMA AGARWAL
Neurologists are enthusiastic, take you through the basics and help you with your confidence for future examinations.DR. CHRIS BENSON
The tutors have been really excellent, friendly and approachable. It’s been nice to see different techniques used and perfecting your own technique. I’d definitely recommend this course to everyone.DR. SONIA SHARMA
The amount of cases that you see, you’re getting the value for money because of that.DR. ZHE WU
It’s been really good, well structured, lots of different examples. Lots of opportunities to be in an exam type scenario. You know you’ve seen the rare stuff in person, it gives you confidence.
Ability to practice and present to strangers (like exam conditions). Volume of cases seen. Station 5 practice was really useful.
The day was really well organised. As of tomorrow I’ll feel a lot more confident, familiar with the exam and know what to expect.DR. JILL NICHOLSON
I’ve been taught some really good logical ways of giving yourself time with making diagnosis. I’ll be able to put the things that I’ve learnt today into practice before I take the exam.DR. DAVID CODLING
As the day has gone on, I’ve seen myself improve. I would definitely recommend the course to my colleagues
Seeing different signs in one place. It helps give you confidence that you have seen certain things previously.
Large range of patients, excellent teaching, good explanations. Divided into small groups with enough time to examine patients. Mock exam was good experience.
Very useful in focusing on Neurological Examination and common signs. Really useful to have mock exams and feedback, this helped me tailor my exam performance for PACES.
Opportunity to examine variety of cases not normally seen in general hospitals. Opportunity to practice station 5.
Neurology examination practice was excellent. Still recall how the consultant demonstrated various gaits. History taking and counselling stations were also very good, getting objective feedback.
You get to be exposed to several different scenarios and see various signs on different Patients. Tutors were really good and gave you guidance. It’s a really good experience.DR. KONSTANTINOS LIATSIKOS
It’s excellent for just seeing the slightly weird and wonderful stuff that you might not have seen before.DR. CHRIS PHILLPS
Exposure to many patients including congenital conditions. Teaching by particular people – Rachel, Belinda, Brent, Preeshila, and Niall. Non-judgemental teaching. Mock examination.
The cardio and neuro cases – very good variety and good teachers.
There were plenty of real patients with rare cases which were the real exam kind of cases for paces and in 2 days we had enough information given about the kind of cases that would come in the exam.
Can see good clinical signs within a short period. Have a good chance to practice history and communication too.
