How does the course run?
Prior to the commencing the online classroom sessions, all candidates are required to undertake the eInduction Module. You will complete 7 online tutorials, by reading and listening to the lectures and completing the online assessment questions. These tutorials have been designed to ensure candidates have basic knowledge of the UK healthcare system and the Part 2 MRCOG exam. The eModule will focus on key issues examiners have found to be most challenging for candidates, as well as assess your readiness for the Part 2 MRCOG exam.
The online classroom is the main tool of the Virtual Revision Course. Through this free to download software, you are able to directly interact and talk with your moderator(s) and a small number of fellow candidates from the comfort of your own PC at home or the office. You join the virtual classroom by clicking on a link that will be provided by the College once you have signed up for the programme.
