Key features include:

Quality review article and pre-webinar case discussion posted in advance, to revise and to test your knowledge
Top tips, buzz words, and principles clinicians use which are not in the books
 Interactive Q and A section, with questions filtered and consolidated for maximum relevance to exam issues
“Hot seat” vivas, with feedback on knowledge and technique, including ‘gold standard’ model answers
Key practice-changing papers, NICE guidelines, and MCQs posted a week later for you to consolidate what you have learned
Access to all recordings in case you missed it

Each webinar will cover a different topic and will last an hour, with the content of the final webinar voted for by you the delegates in a poll half way through the course.
