FRCA Primary - Scientific Principles of Clinical Anaesthesia 
Information: This clinical-topics course (held twice a year) is designed to assist training or non-training doctors preparing to take the Primary FRCA examination. Delegates will receive didactic and interactive lectures. Interactive learning through sessions is strongly encouraged, especially sessions which concentrate on areas previously identified as particularly difficult by past trainees.

The course helps delegates identify areas of knowledge relating to physiology and pharmacology, which are examined in VIVA 1 of the Primary FRCA Examination. Delegates will be given the opportunity to discuss issues and equipment with experts. Statistics will be introduced, with emphasis on principles of study design and errors incurred.
