who we are

 

The SCIP course was initially created by a consultant and 3 ST2's who were frustrated by the difficulties of organising Primary FRCA SOE and OSCE practice. Since we started in 2000 we have run the course three times every year covering every sitting of the exam.

When we started, our philosophy was unusual in that we use a mixture of Consultants, senior trainees and recent successful exam candidates as tutors. Remember that most UK consultants have never sat Primary FRCA and that the exam evolves over time so even those who have may not know what it is like now. We work very hard to keep our course material as up to date as possible.

To maintain the quality of the course we only ever accept 16 candidates as this kind of teaching is very labour intensive (we typically have 12-15 faculty on day 1 and 22 faculty on day 2). SCIP has been so successful that we have worked with colleagues in 2 other regions who wished to run a duplicate copy of SCIP; as a result SCIPY now runs very successfully in the Yorkshire region (South Coast Intensive Primary: Yorkshire course). Sadly the Severn region BIP Course is no longer running. Both SCIP & SCIPY are run separately but work closely together to ensure a high-quality experience for all our candidates and to develop the course in response to changes in the exam process.
