The Leicester FCEM Course of Spring 2011 took place over the weekend of Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd April 2011 in the Clinical Skills Centre at Leicester Royal Infirmary.

Over the 2 days, it involved 36 OSCE stations, 4 rounds of CTR vivas, 4 rounds of Management vivas, 18 candidates, 14 faculty members, 13 actors, 2 runners, and 3 corporate sponsors. There was also a postal written SAQ and written Critical Appraisal component in early March before the College of Emergency Medicine’s written exams.

Some candidates were local, some from around London or the North of England, while others came to Leicester from as far away as Ireland and Australia. The faculty members included consultants and senior registrars from Leicester, Nottingham, Kettering, Chesterfield, Rotherham, Barnsley, Cambridge and London.

Judging from the candidate feedback, the course was a tremendous success. The Organisers - Dr Mandar Marathe (Leicester Royal Infirmary), Dr Steven How (Rotherham General Hospital) & Dr Chris Yap (Barnsley Hospital) - would like to thank all the actors and faculty for their positive support in making the course a success.

The next FCEM Course will be in early September 2011 in preparation for the Autumn 2011 diet of the FCEM exam. Please visit http://www.LeicesterFCEM.com or email info@LeicesterFCEM.com to register your interest.
