MRCP  PACES  Clinical Course (4 days) London

Our PACES courses are usually held at Professional Education Centres at Guy's Campus and University College Hospital in London.

In May and June 2021 due to COVID-19 restrictions we are holding our courses at the Novotel London West.


PACES Course timetable

Courses now commence at 8.00am and finish at 5.00pm to permit an extra hour of teaching on each of the first three days.

Each of these days comprises four one hour and 45 minute clinical sessions and commences with a demonstration of clinical examination techniques relevant to that day's clinical sessions.


Clinical stations involve structured bedside teaching with an emphasis on technique and presentation.

Teaching takes place in small groups of 1 lecturer to 6 candidates.


History Taking and Communication Skills stations have 1 lecturer to 4 candidates allowing a full 20 minutes to be allocated to each candidate.


Mock Examination
On Day four each candidate will be given a Mock Examination.
This will comprise a 40 minute Clinical assessment on a 1 to 1 basis, which will cover the four main clinical stations (Cardiovascular, Respiratory, Abdomen and Neurology), followed by individual feedback.
