About The Melbourne Clinical Exam Course

Many candidates preparing for the College of Intensive Care Medicine (CICM) clinical examinations find success difficult to achieve despite possessing adequate theoretical knowledge. Clinical exams require a very different skill set to that needed for written exams or indeed every day clinical practice. This two day course has been developed to teach the skills necessary to bridge the gap between knowledge and performance in the examinations.

The course is specifically aimed at trainees sitting the CICM fellowship clinical examination. Ideally you should do this course six to twelve months prior to your sitting, then go back to your unit, practice the skills learned and then sit the exam. Of course trainees who are about to undertake the final fellowship examinations will also find this course valuable.

MCEC is a unique course with a very strong focus on the teaching of exam skills (as opposed to knowledge delivery).
