'As one of eight doctors from Ipswich Hospital to attend the PassPACES Course, I just wanted to pass on my thanks for a fantastic course. The patients were amazing; not only having superb clinical signs, but also pointing us in the right direction should we be struggling!
The clinical lecturers taught enthusiastically, with a good sense of humour; the mock exam and the way the lecturers responded during the mock was extremely relevant and useful for the actual exam. The feedback we were given during the course reflected the style of the exam marking system and was invaluable for improving any "weak" spots.
It was a 100% pass rate for the Ipswich group who all attended the PassPACES Course - all of us "first timers" - thank you so much for helping us to achieve this.'
I just want to say thank you so much for a fantastic course. I passed first time and was amazed and absolutely delighted to score 172/172! I definitely could not have achieved that mark without attending the course: the teaching was really outstanding and we were exposed to so many patients with such excellent signs. I expected that the course might feel rather intimidating but the lecturers were enthusiastic, supportive and provided very helpful feedback. The course gave me the confidence and the structure to approach more complex cases (particularly neurology) and 'work things out' in a logical way.
Thank you for a really enjoyable and inspiring 4 days! I have already recommended the course to my colleagues and will continue to do so!
