FRACP Intensive Two Week Course

Course Overview

The Auckland University Department of Paediatrics established this annual course in 1988. It is a two-week intense review of topics tailored for the Part 1 FRACP Paediatric examination. Over 60 practicing clinicians from Starship and other NZ hospitals present during the course, and speakers are carefully chosen to be up-to-date and informative. The course is updated every year and involves a mixture of topic reviews and mock questions within each session.

Most handouts, lecture recordings and a web-based programme of the topics are available to the students attending the course in person or online. The success of the programme has been testified by direct feedback and ultimate examination success from the students after the course. Please see testimonials from past students on this website.

To ensure maximal individual benefit and support, the places for the in-person option are limited in this course. The course is regularly oversubscribed and sold out. Early expressions of interest and early registration are recommended.

If you are interested in this course and have had an unsuccessful exam result before, please contact the programme coordinator.
