FRCS Trauma and Orthopaedics Viva offers a unique approach to this high stakes exam, from the team behind the highly successful Oxford revision course. Based on the principle that viva candidates improve their technique by observing and learning from others, the author team have created a best-pracitce formula for dealing with the individual scenarios.
The book is set out in a simple format, with viva topics introduced by an an initial clinical photograph, radiograph or diagram. Sets of questions follow underneath with the suggested answers on the next page. This allows the reader to work in pairs, groups or on their own. Based on the Oxford Revision Course, this book is already a tried and tested revision tool, ideal for this high-pressure examination.
A perfect tool for viva practice. There is a chapter for each of the 4 viva stations, followed by a final chapter of diagrams that you may be asked to draw. Each sub-topic is covered in a double page spread, with a picture on the left, and questions and answers on the right. The questions are good examples of the questions asked, and the answers are clear and well-structured (I speak as someone who has recently passed this exam). The topics are a bit too easy in places, but I think it covers the “pass/fail” topics very well. You need to be able to give quick 30-second answers for these topics, so you can move on to the questions where you can really start scoring points. The answers given here will help you refine this skill.
Essential tip: read this book along with a revision buddy. If you are testing yourself, it is all too easy to fool yourself into thinking ‘I would have said that’. It’s best for this buddy to be another trainee, as they will understand the nuances of an almost-correct answer, but it doesn’t really matter who you work with: my wife acted as a very patient examiner on a number of occasions when I was revising at home, and caught me out on a number of waffly answers.Another tip is that if you really have to revise alone, get a dictaphone (the same one you use in clinic), and record yourself answering the questions out loud. When you play it back, you will be shocked by how much room there is for improvement.
