FOUNDATION PROGRAMME COURSES (SJT, CSA)

Welcome to our page dedicated to the Foundation Programme (UKFPO). In order to gain a place as a Foundation Year 1 doctor in the UK you will have to sit the Situational Judgement Test (SJT) and if you graduated 2 years before the start date of your FY1 programme you will have to sit the Clinical Assessment Exam (CSA) OSCE. We have tailor made courses to help students excel in the SJT to maximise your UKFPO application scores and to overcome the Clinical Skills Assessment exam.

Clinical Skills Assessment (CSA)

OSCEs are made up of a circuit of ‘stations’, each station being a self- contained area (a room) in which a candidate is asked to perform a given clinical task. The tasks are largely independent on one another and the knowledge and skills utilised in one are neither required nor utilised in subsequent stations.
 

Day 1: Focused history taking, history taking in difficult circumstances – challenging communication – Team work – Ethical and legal issues

Day 2: surgical and peri-operative care – discharge planning – health promotion and patient education

Day 3 and 4: recognition and management of acute illness – examination of patients with chronic disease – practical procedures

Day 5 – this day will include data interpretation (ECGs, CXR, ABGs) and management of medical emergencies

Course dates for CSA 2022 candidates: November 8-10th
  • October 3rd - 6th 2022
  • October 9th for additional 5th day (online session) 2022
Course fee: £450 - this will include all study material and addition to a dedicated WhatsApp group for exam-related discussion 
Unlimited practice after the course up until the exam
