NZ final exam refresher course

This three day course covers many of the core curriculum topics that could be included in the ANZCA final examination.

Course structure

This course is focusses on the medical and anaesthetic viva components of the final examination.

The first day consists of lectures and a practice short answer question (SAQ) session. Invited specialists will present lectures relevant to the medical vivas, covering the major organ systems.
The following two days consist of practice vivas under examination conditions. Formal attire must be worn. Each candidate will experience practice medical vivas, anaesthetic vivas, and a separate anaesthetic viva which will be videoed and individually debriefed. When not participating in a viva session, candidates will have access to data interpretation stations. The contents of these stations have been selected by anaesthetists to be relevant to the medical component of the examination.
Course convenors will be available throughout the course to give informal advice and support.
