There is a need for a concise revision guide for the FRCS General Surgery Intercollegiate exam, and this is such a book, serving as a companion for the trainee throughout the course of their six-year training rotation. It reflects the exact framework of the exam syllabus issued by the Joint Committee on Higher Surgical Training (JCHST), and contains the most recently amended guidelines.
The question and answer style used is a popular and effective method which lends itself perfectly to studying either alone or as a group, wherein one acts as examiner and the other as candidate. Further, the exam is very clinically orientated, with vivas based on a clinical scenario, using patients and images as method of initiating clinical discussion.
This book will act as supplementary reading for any course relating to the FRCS exit examination in general surgery. Both the authors and main contributors have passed the FRCS exam in general surgery and have many years experience in postgraduate medical education.
