Dear fellow medical officers and registrars,

Re:  Invitation to the 8th annual UCT refresher course for FCP(SA) part 1 examination

We are organising a refresher course at Groote Schuur Hospital for candidates preparing for the FCP part 1 exams in June 2017 and would like to extend an official invitation to all medical officers and registrars at your hospital to attend the course with us.

This is the eighth year that we are offering the refresher course at UCT.  Owing to the success of the candidates that previously attended, and overwhelmed by the interest from all over the country and from neighbouring countries, we are now hosting an annual refresher course.

The aim of the course is to revise the entire syllabus as prescribed by the CMSA guidelines. We have therefore chosen experts in the different sub-specialities to prepare lectures in line with the curriculum and specifically aimed at the preparation for the college exams.  The lectures vary between 60 and 120 minutes and are of an exceptionally high standard.  We are privileged to have presenters that are passionate about teaching.

Date:              Friday 19th to Sunday 21st May 2017

Venue:           Lecture Theatre 2, Groote Schuur Hospital, Cape Town

The cost of the course is R1650, which is all inclusive of the three days of lectures with daily lunch, as well as morning and afternoon tea with refreshments (transportation to the venue and accommodation is not included).  Upon registration you will receive access to online copies of the lectures.  On arrival at the course, you will also receive a hard copy of the presentations for your note keeping during the lectures. 

Please contact Liziwe Figlan at 021 406 6200 or, should you be interested in attending the refresher course.  Ms Figlan will send you a registration form and the UCT banking details.  You need to complete this form and return it with proof of payment.  Please note that registration closes on the 22nd of April 2017.

Please also inform any colleagues that work elsewhere, they are welcome to join us.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in the Mother City.

Kind regards

Refresher Course Committee
