This is the most comprehensive resource for candidates sitting the challenging final Clinical Skills Assessment exam, offering a complete curriculum guide as well as 110 role plays that can be removed and practised in pairs.

The guidance is seamlessly aligned to the RCGP syllabus, fully up-to-date and referenced with the latest guidelines, with detailed 'model' answers to each case. Offering a new, straightforward consultation model highly suited to the requirements of the exam, the book provides:

  • a realistic amount of information for both ‘doctor' and ‘patient’ to closely replicate the exam
  • the answers! Each case includes a fully worked up ‘Model Consultation’
  • summaries of guidelines and tips from the authors' recent experience of the CSA exam for all 110 cases
  • an easy way to mark each colleague’s role play attempts, with tick boxes on the Model Consultation and a universally applicable marking scheme card
  • a colour-coded curriculum for ease of reference
  • the only CSA casebook and revision guide providing information and answers across the curriculum.
