How do Achieve Anaesthesia sessions work?

Candidates select either the Standard or Comprehensive Package.

For both package holders, initially, an Introductory Session is booked.  This session includes:

  • a discussion with a Course Director(s) about known and unknown weaknesses;
  • a pre-assessment will be required to help identify areas that need further attention;
  • a specific study plan will be discussed and developed to meet each Candidates needs and desires e.g. a couple of focused sessions in the weeks ahead of the exam vs multiple more comprehensive sessions during the months leading up to the exam;
  • the most suitable Tutor for each Candidate will be allocated during this session;
  • a 15-20 minute free VIVA trial will also be provided during the Introductory Session  to give Candidates a feel for future sessions.

Candidates that have selected the Standard Package will then be able to purchase Ad hoc sessions, to be booked on a day and time that suits them best. Candidates who have selected the Comprehensive Package will receive 5 sessions at a discounted price plus will gain access to the Achieve Anaesthesia Content Library, derived from recommended texts.
