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 was very anxious about coming on the course but was very impressed with the course. It was very useful to see so many cases and also to have such good teaching and exam tips. I came away feeling much more confident about the exam
I did my Course on 19th & 20th May 2018 and took my PACES exam in July 2018. I passed it in the first attempt and I think your teaching course was amazing and played a part in guiding me in the right direction in terms of what to study and how to prepare.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the staff and tutors of this outstanding course. I passed my exam from the first attempt with a good score all thanks to Ealing PACES. The course was focused, intensive and right to the point. I highly recommend it!
I want to thank the whole team at Ealing PACES as I have passed exam at first attempt in diet 3, 2017. I certainly believe that it only happened because of such effort from the tutors of the course and also the course materials provided.
Neurologists are enthusiastic, take you through the basics and help you with your confidence for future examinations.
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.
Very good teaching with small groups so we could each examine the patients & present to an examiner who helped fine tune our technique which was excellent for learning
I attended the Neurology-Ophthalmology course on 27th January 2018. I passed my PACES exam in London on the first attempt. I scored 20/20 in the neurology station. The course I attended was very helpful and I have already recommended it to my friends here in Qatar. I want to thank all of the course tutors.
The teaching and training for PACES was marvelous and the staff were incredible. I have learned very beneficial tricks to pass the exam, and saw many cases on the course which I have never seen in my practice. I have passed my PACES first trial. I would definitely recommend the course to other applicants. I believe from my experience the course would make 100% difference in performance and confidence towards the exam.
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.
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.
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.
We were given a very useful booklet which has been very helpful for revision
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.
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.
It’s excellent for just seeing the slightly weird and wonderful stuff that you might not have seen before.
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.
Opportunity to examine variety of cases not normally seen in general hospitals. Opportunity to practice station 5.
