This is to apply higher order thinking and judgement to the previously read through material. This is to reinforce material that can sometimes be passively read without being critically analysed or appreciated. We want to avoid rote factual learning of orthopaedic topics without really understanding the topic. This is particularly true of applied basic sciences which must be understood so as to provide a firm foundation with clinical practice. We will be applying higher order thinking and evaluation skills to the included material that will make the e learning platform uniquely different to any existing website.

Delegates will be split into groups and have the opportunity to be examined individually over the course of the day on popular topics in Basic Sciences. There will be ample opportunity for questions throughout the day with useful tips and constructive feedback. The course is suitable for those who are sitting the exam very soon or those who wish to have a feel for how to prepare for the exam. We feel it would be suitable for those ST5 and above or equivalent non-trainees. This one day viva course can be booked on its own or combined with the one day BBiOrth course.

Discount is available for those attending both days and if two delegates are attending the course together. Candidates are eligible to sit part II of this exam after successfully completing part I which is a written exam and made up of two papers.

Both of these written papers are taken together on the same day. Part II of this exam requires a different technique to part I; the candidate must demonstrate that they are safe and able to perform as a newly qualified consultant. On the day of the part II exam, candidates are given the opportunity to engage with the examiner as a colleague and demonstrate their understanding of various topics. Part II of the exam is over two days.

The first day entails the Clinical Examination and is based at an outpatient department in a hospital. There are 2 intermediate cases, 15minutes each and two sets of three lower limb and three upper limb short cases. Each case is 5minutes. Paediatric and Hands is 15 minutes each and is the only station where the examiner is a specialist in their field.

The exam involves a set of vivas during which a range of topics is discussed, the aim being to demonstrate trauma safety and competence rather than trauma expertise. Examiners may use props such as models, clinical pictures, clinical studies, and x-rays to introduce topics and initiate discussion. This book uses a similar model to allow the candidate to practise key topics for discussion with common presentations and histories, and high quality x-rays. The book lends itself to individual and small group learning as trainees prepare for their examinations.

It will describe how the section is written, administered and used to determine who will be allowed to proceed to sit Section 2 clinicals and vivas. If candidates understand more about the nature of this section of the exam they may be more relaxed when they come to face it, and may therefore perform better! It is designed to test knowledge across the curriculum and, insofar as is possible, does so using questions that require higher-order thinking rather than asking for a fact, it looks for the application of knowledge to solve problems, often clinical scenarios. An ongoing development of the examination is the progressive rewriting of questions in the bank that are currently recorded as level 1 questions factual knowledge into higher order questions. A characteristic of all Intercollegiate exams is the extraordinary attention to ensuring the consistency of standards from one diet to the next, and one decade to the next. It is worth looking at how the paper is compiled, marked and decisions made about who passes and fails. Questions have come into the bank from many sources, but always through the question-writing committee.
