Final exam refresher course (Auckland)

This full-time, fortnight-long intensive course (formerly called part 2) has been specifically designed to assist candidates in their preparation for both the written and oral sections of the exam.

Course content and structure

The course runs full time over a two week period. Over 60 hours of tuition are provided. Registrants will participate in lectures, tutorials, case studies, ECG interpretation and x-ray assessments. A formal practice viva session is included. There will be sessions devoted specifically to exam preparation and exam technique.
Speakers are encouraged to present their topics in an interactive format based around case scenarios and previous examination questions. You will be encouraged to take an active part in the sessions and will be expected to participate in the discussions. Although the scope of the course is extensive, it is not possible within the given timeframe to review all the information required for the exam.

Most of the registrars attending the course are about to sit the Part II FANZCA exam. As such, most of the information should be familiar to them. Some registrars prefer to attend the course well in advance of the exam. We recognise that this is a valid way of experiencing first hand both the standard that is required to pass the exam and the breadth of topics.

Candidates will be divided into two smaller groups for most presentations to encourage greater interaction and participation. The groups will be mixed and will not be allocated on the basis of proximity to the exam.
The course will be held in the Clinical Education Centre at Auckland City Hospital, 2 Park Road, Grafton, Auckland, New Zealand.


The course is only open to registered ANZCA trainees and overseas trained specialists. The number of places available on the course is currently limited to 40. New Zealand trainees have priority registration until Tuesday 26 January 2021. If applying from outside NZ please email Debbie Beaumont for an expression of interest form.  All completed expression of interest forms must be received by Wednesday 27 January at 5PM NZT. A ballot will be held on Thursday 28 January 2021.

Registration fees

The full course fee is $NZ 2,700.00 payment will be requested when you enrol online. Both morning tea and afternoon tea will be provided each day.  A course dinner will be held on Friday of the first week of the course.
