These concise revision notes are aimed at candidates preparing for UK and international FRCS (Trauma & Orthopaedics) exit examination as well as the European Board (EBOT) and SICOT diplomas.


The book has been written in an easy to read style, with a focus on being an exam candidate’s companion for quick revision on the go. Candidates are usually caught between a busy job and the demands of these challenging exams. This book covers the depth and breadth of Trauma & Orthopaedics knowledge to help candidates sail through the Fellowship exit examinations.

 

We have aimed to provide a high quality one stop concise knowledge bank to cover the whole syllabus of Trauma & Orthopaedics in a well organised bullet point style.

 

This will provide a useful resource for both part 1 (MCQs, EMQs) as well as part 2 (Viva and Clinical) components of the exit examinations. It is an ideal companion to complement your preparation for the examination with the most useful information presented in the most succinct manner.

 

The authors are senior members of the FRCS Mentor Group who have between them ample up to date experience and knowledge with the Fellowship examination. They have attended most postgraduate orthopaedic courses in the UK and internationally, and have reviewed all relevant exam book. They have excellent track records of helping many candidates to pass their exams.

 

This book is complemented by hundreds of diagrams, illustrations, radiographs and clinical images. There are QR codes interspersed within the chapters which when scanned using your smartphone camera, link up to either the corresponding open-access seminal paper or to a YouTube video pertaining to the topic discussed. 

 

We look forward to the readers’ feedback that will help us immensely to improve the contents in the next edition for the benefit of future orthopaedic aspirants. Head over to Amazon, Google Books and to BookAuthority.org to leave a review, or write to the email below.
