Preparation for Fellowship Success (Online)

Based on the ongoing COVID-19 situation and associated risk, the 2021 Preparation for Fellowship Success workshop will be delivered online.

The Preparation for Fellowship Success (PFS) workshop is a three-day intensive preparatory course which aims to maximise success and boost your confidence in passing the Final Examination and achieving Fellowship with the College. 

The PFS workshop will focus on writing skills, examination format and training on viva voce techniques. Small interactive groups hosted by facilitators will help you work through virtual clinical cases to improve your ability to think, analyse and develop management plans for patients in an examination setting.

This year the course includes two self-directed study group sessions via Zoom. These sessions provide you with the opportunity to connect with peers and complete self-directed learning activities.

This course offers a unique opportunity to communicate with examiners, experienced facilitators, and your peers to prepare you for Fellowship success.

It is recommended that candidates complete the workshop in the year prior to sitting the examination.
