MCEM Part A Course

 The following study options are available for the MCEM Part A Course:

The MCEM Part A examination requires a broad knowledge of a number of areas of basic medical science, along with an understanding of how this relates to emergency medicine.

Many candidates have described to us the challenge of knowing where to focus across the broad curriculum published by the College.

In response to this we have provided a full set of MCEM Part A materials online.

These may be particularly valuable to those who would find it difficult to get to one of our courses. However they are also an efficient way for anyone to learn or revise the key subjects.

There are 33 hours of webinars, each recorded live during September to November 2014.

The whole package can be bought for £220,  INR 21,000 or AED 1230.

Or individual webinars can be bought for as little as £7. View all available recordings.

You will have access to the webinars as many times as you like until 31st August 2015.

We also have institutional packages, so if you have a group of trainees preparing for this exam, we have special rates with individual accounts for your trainees. If you would like to know more please contact us on: info@mcemcourses.org

The structure that we have followed in the webinars is to start with typical Part A questions which we encourage candidates to stop and answer before proceeding. This is then followed by detailed teaching on the relevant part of the curriculum focusing particularly on difficult areas and those areas which we know are popular examination subjects.

Finally, the webinars conclude with a review of the questions shown at the beginning, with answers and explanation.

We have given a great deal of thought to this package and believe that it covers the overwhelming majority of subjects likely to be encountered in the exam, and that it sets out the material in a way that can be readily understood and learnt from.

You may want to try a couple of webinars, book the whole set, or just focus on those areas where you think you have more work to do.

Please also consider registering on this website. This will give you free access to a range of resources including online lectures on MCEM Part A statistics and evidence-based medicine.

Now in its 10th year, our flagship MCEM Part A course continues to deliver the highest quality in MCEM teaching to doctors wishing to sit the first part of the College of Emergency Medicine Membership examination. With over 20 courses behind them, the course organisers bring an extensive knowledge of the Part A exam to a course packed full of focused exam teaching, tips and practice questions. The course is continually updated and revised to provide the best possible preparation for the demanding MCEM Part A exam.

Our MCEM Part A course runs over two whole days. Each day begins with a full 50 question MCQ practice Part A paper. This is followed by a series of exam focused lectures from our experienced and knowledgeable faculty covering all the important topics: anatomy, the major areas of the physiology curriculum, pharmacology, pathology and haematology. In addition, a series of anatomy MCQ workshops, a lecture on exam and revision tips and a whole session devoted to discussing the most frequently examined MCEM Part A topics, all give invaluable exam preparation. The anatomy teaching with Professor Harold Ellis is also a particular highlight.

A comprehensive course manual – containing copies of all lecture presentations along with additional material – accompanies the course, and all those attending receive online access to videos of lectures from a previous course.
