We are adding to the range of our highly successful DVD series. Last filmed in 2009, we are increasing the offers available to psychiatry registrars and international medical graduates (IMGs) as the examination process changes over time.
This DVD series will be valuable to all psychiatry registrars and IMG’s who will be assessed under the 2012 Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Psychiatrists (RANZCP) fellowship pathway.
We have created a DVD for each marking domain of the objective clinical assessment (OCA). The DVDs can be viewed alone or as a component of series that delivers practical tips and tricks plus a wealth of experience regarding ways to achieve exam success.
Created by Dr Helen Schultz, consultant psychiatrist and director of CPD Formulations, these DVDs should form part of all examination preparation. Dr Helen Schultz has coached and trained psychiatry registrars and IMGs since 2007, and shares her knowledge and wisdom combined with her clinical experience as a psychiatrist. She has first hand experience with this style of clinical examinations, after sitting the RANZCP fellowship exams in 2006.
Dr Helen Schultz has created these DVD’s with Glen Hancox, professional actor and director of ActReal. Glen has extensive experience with the RANZCP clinical examinations, as the in house actor for CPD Formulations since 2008. Glen also brings his expertise in presentation skills to this new range of DVDs.
Disc 4 highlights the marking domain of Data gathering (process), an in depth look at how to structure your time, how to probe for information and tips and tricks on verbal and non verbal communication. This marking domain is the one that is easiest to master as well as easy to fail! Examiners decide whether a candidate should pass or fail depending on their first impressions. Present as confident, experienced safe and caring and you are almost all of the way there.
