FRCS Starter Course



Tips and Techniques for Part 1 of the FRCS General Surgery

About this event

The Section 1 of the FRCS is one of the hardest exams you will take. Sometimes it is too overwhelming and you just dont know where to start. We will talk you through how to start, practice questions and guide you through some technique and application.

There is a lack of guidance and support for people who want to take the first part of the general surgery exam and this course will help fill that gap and support you on your way to success.

After a fantastic inaugural year the feedback received has been excellent and helped candidates save that initial revision time searching for resources and identfying the approach to the exam.

Let’s walk this journey together and help you succeed!
