Plastic Surgery Vivas for the FRCS (Plast): An Essential Guide – Original PDF
This is the first Q&A-based revision book specifically aimed at candidates sitting the viva component of the FRCS(Plast) examination. It provides a selection of common clinical scenarios presented in a realistic way and presents a guide to answering the FRCS (Plast) questions, as well as advice on how to approach the revision process itself. Crucially, this will help to prepare candidates to organise their thoughts, demonstrate higher order thinking and present a robust answer in the face of grey areas and controversies.
The text covers all topics from the syllabus including Trauma, Burns, Facial and Soft Tissue Injuries, Acute Head and Neck Tumours, Cleft and Craniofacial, Congenital anomalies, Facial Palsy, Vascular anomalies, Trunk & Perineal, Skin Cancer, Basic Sciences, Aesthetic, Ethics & Medico-legal, and Consent. Candidates using this book will be able to realistically recreate the exam scenario either in private or in a group setting.
This book is equally useful for candidates sitting plastic surgery post graduate exams with equivalent syllabuses to that of the FRCS(Plast) such as the EBOPRAS exam, as well as others. In addition, it also makes an excellent companion for trainees throughout the course of their six-year training rotation, allowing more junior plastic surgery trainees the opportunity to become acquainted with the format and content of the FRCS (Plast) exam. Lastly it may be helpful to consultants who are interested in coaching their trainees in topics other than their subspeciality.
