It can be difficult as a candidate without years of anaesthesia experience to appreciate the relative importance and clinical applications of different learning outcomes. One of the PLOOTD bloggers (who is of course incidentally an examiner) has therefore made this fantastic resource – A Primer for the Primary FANZCA examination. For each topic the depth of knowledge required is indicated, sources are recommended and some idea of the weighting in the exam is suggested. Many of the topics have useful musings from someone who has been an examiner for 12 years. Many of the topics also have links to some practice T/F questions with an idea of how difficult the writer feels they are.
This is going to be of most use to those who are sitting in August and beyond, but there’s a lot in there for those betwixt written and vivas too.
We think this resource is gold. Have a look and see what you think.
