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 UKFP 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. New format for 2021 based on updates from UKFPO – 5 day course
Day 1: (ONLINE)

– Focused history taking, history taking in difficult circumstances – challenging communication – Team work – Ethical and legal issues Day 2: (ONLINE) – surgical and peri-operative care – discharge planning – health promotion and patient education Day 3 and 4: (LIVE SESSIONS in Birmingham) – recognition and management of acute illness – examination of patients with chronic disease – practical procedures Day 5 – additional ONLINE day for this years exam
