The Sydney Written Course, run by Dr Arvind Rajamani at Nepean ICU, is well-established in the training calendar for intensive care trainees preparing for the CICM Fellowship exam (Now called the Second Part exam). It’s a two day course with an excellent reputation for teaching structure and strategy for the Written Exams.
The next course will be held in February 2015 and targets any advanced trainee aiming to sit the exams either in March or August 2015. Also planned is a clinical day on Feb 11 which employs videographic feedback to candidates and observers, which has been highly popular in the past. This day is now full, so the guys are organising a second day on the 12th … get in quick, this is gold!
- small group workshops on how to answer written questions;
- real CICM examiners;
- full 2½ hour written exam which is marked by examiners with feedback,
- excellent lectures on statistics,
- critical care evidence base,
One of the big pluses of this course is being challenged to write exam answers under exam conditions and then getting feedback from experienced intensivists on how you can improve and harvest as many points as possible. For the next hosting there is the exciting new addition of a clinical day (hot case and vivas) which employ videographic techniques for detailed feedback, so the course is stronger than ever.I am text block.
