Brief Description:

Basic science subjects such as anatomy, physiology, pathology and microbiology are the principal components for developing a strong foundation for surgical training and for the understanding of its clinically applied aspects such as surgical anatomy and critical care physiology. As such, these subjects form an integral part in the MRCS A exam.

This two-day course will provide the attendee with an overview of basic physiological principles, consolidate the candidate's core and applied surgical knowledge in anatomy and relevant pathology, and provide a focused revision of pertinent topics as tested in the exam.

The course is structured into two distinct but related days. On day 1, the emphasis will be on basic and applied pathology, basic physiology and critical care, principles of surgery and clinical topics. Day 2 will predominately feature topics on basic and surgically applied anatomy, and its related pathology. Microbiology pertinent to MRCS A will also be covered on day 2. It is advised that candidates attend both days of the course to get the full benefit but if they are particularly strong in the topics on day 1 or day 2, then they have the option of attending one day of the course.

Candidates attending this course will receive full access to MRCS Part A online educational resources from for a 4 month period. This resource contains 100s of SBA and EMQ questions for practice. In addition, they will also receive full access to all presentations via a secure, online link. All these benefits and privileges are included within the course fee.
