About this deal
Prescribing: Advising, authorising or reviewing the use of medicine/drugs as part of a patient’s clinical management plan. Focusing on one specialty at a time will also allow you to identify common themes and consolidate your learning within each topic. It's used predominantly for selection at CT1 and ST1 level as you can see from the diagram with the exam itself sat by most people in the F2 year after you apply for specialty training and before the interviews. The most important thing to remember is not to underestimate the MSRA and to prepare fully to give yourself the best possible chance of scoring highly on the exam.
For example, GP and Psychiatry both rely 100% on the MSRA score so you’ll want to spend more time preparing for it. Preparing well for the MSRA will ensure that you give yourself the best possible chance of achieving a high MSRA score and positively impacting your ST application. Once the window for applications has closed, applicants will receive correspondence from their recruitment lead containing specific account credentials and instructions that will enable them to register with an account. Rather, it focuses on professional attributes and behaviours when interacting with patients and colleagues, and requires you to demonstrate your judgement regarding the most appropriate behaviours within given scenarios.They are two separate papers under the same exam conditions so if you finish early you'll have to wait. The same score can be used for all these specialties and will play an important part in the ranking process. The Clinical Problem Solving Paper is a significant component of the MSRA, assessing your clinical knowledge across different specialties. Pilot questions are also included alongside the test for the purpose of item development; however, you will not be scored on these. To book an MSRA exam you need to first apply for specialty training in one of the specialties that uses the MSRA.
I took it when I applied for Ophthalmology training, and you are likely to need this exam if you plan to apply for some of the other more competitive specialties. I will definitely be recommending Emedica for any of my friends or colleagues revising for the exam. The Professional Dilemmas Paper is a Situational Judgement Test (SJT) designed to assess your response to situations involving challenging professional dilemmas. You can work through the MSRA practice questions in your own time, allowing you to familiarise yourself with the different question formats and types of scenarios you will encounter in the exam.In section two of the PD paper there's a scenario, there's eight options and you're asked to select the three most appropriate options from the list. I just wanted to thank you very much for all your help with the MSRA crammer course and online revision package. This service has questions pitched at the same level and style as the real exam, to offer you the best preparation possible.
