This new book is a highly structured case-based text to help candidates pass the new MRCP PACES (Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills) examination. Its contents correspond to the five clinical stations of the exam and the systems that each contains. Each system is covered in a structured way, providing an examination scheme followed by a series of detailed case-based clinical scenarios. The book also covers the communication and history-taking skills and ethics stations which are new to this exam.

  • Designed to thoroughly prepare candidates for the Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills (PACES).
  • Written as a systematic text which exactly complements the format of the exam:
  • Station 1: Respiratory System, Abdominal System
  • Station 2: History Taking Skills
  • Station 3: Cardiovascular System, Nervous System
  • Station 4: Communication Skills and Ethics
  • Station 5: Skin, Locomotor System, Eyes, Endocrine
  • Uses a practical, user-friendly, case-based format
  • Each system in Stations 1,3 and 5 starts with a detailed examination scheme followed by a unique Recognition-Interpretation-Discussion format for each case. This has been carefully designed to make preparing for PACES efficient and maximise marks on the day of the exam.
  • Stations 2 and 4 both start with introductions to the history taking and communication skills tested in the exam. Cases then follow, each comprising boxed history taking or communication skills/ethics points relating to the case followed by questions and answers
  • The book is an up to date, detailed medical text for PACES candidates, striking the balance between the need to be concise and the needs to carefully explain concepts which candidates find difficult.
  • Suitable as a 'ward adjunct' in the months and weeks prior to PACES, and may also be used for quick reference close to the exam
  • Recognises the needs of busy doctors preparing for the exam
  • Suitable for medical students approaching final MB
  • Suitable also for PLAB candidates, FRACP, etc
