23–24 September 2016 – FRCS (Tr and Orth) Viva Course for Orthopaedic Surgeons, London

The aim of this course is to enable orthopaedic surgeons to explore the broad range of orthopaedics required for the FRCS (Tr & Orth) examination in a friendly atmosphere, with particular attention being paid to viva (oral examination) technique.

This course is unique in that in addition to viva techniques there will be an opportunity for the candidates to be taught clinical examination skills (on non patients), and practice in the approach to short cases and intermediate cases. Furthermore, the course will not only help your career by aiming for success at the exam but the enhanced  clinical examination and viva skills learnt will benefit your practice.


  • Introduction to the FRCS (Tr & Orth) Examination
  • Negotiating the Requirements of the Course/Introduction to Positive Critiquing
  • Clinical Examination Session – History Taking

Learning outcomes
