Get Through MRCOG Part 3: Clinical Assessment, Second Edition
This study guide offers a systematic, comprehensive and focused approach to preparation for the MRCOG Part 3 Clinical Assessment exam. After an initial introduction, the text divides by OSCE station, beginning with an analysis of what the station is testing and what approaches and preparation are required, supported by tips and examples; this is followed by thoroughly worked practice questions based upon the exam format, with an analysis of how these are likely to be marked. Practice exam ‘circuits’ with fully worked questions and answers conclude the book.
Mr Justin Clark trained in Obstetrics and Gynaecology in Leicester, Birmingham and the West Midlands and obtained the Membership of the Royal College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (RCOG) in 1999. He spent two years conducting research into heavy menstrual bleeding, pelvic pain and endometriosis culminating in a Doctor of Medicine awarded with honours in 2004. He was appointed as a Lecturer in Gynaecology at Birmingham University and Consultant in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at the Birmingham Women’s Hospital in 2004. He has developed clinical expertise in the management of general gynaecological conditions, especially the treatment of menstrual disorders, fibroids, pelvic pain and endometriosis. This capability was facilitated by the acquisition of RCOG accreditation in minimal access ‘key hole’ surgery, specialising in hysteroscopic and laparoscopic techniques, and gynaecological ultrasound. He has been at the forefront in pioneering outpatient interventions for the diagnosis and treatment of menstrual disorders utilising hysteroscopy and ultrasound. His strong research background and clinical experience enabled him to publish a definitive book in 2005 about the modern management of common gynaecological problems utilising minimally invasive approaches. He is one of the leading UK experts in outpatient therapeutic interventions in benign gynaecology including outpatient ‘office’ hysteroscopic removal of polyps and fibroids, endometrial ablation and the new ‘non-cut’ outpatient method of female sterilisation (the ‘EssureTM’ system) that avoids the need for general anaesthetic and hospital admission.
