The 3rd edition of PACES for the MRCP has been fully revised and updated throughout to retain its pole position as the textbook to accompany core medical training (CMT) and prepare candidates for success in the Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills and a future specialty career. Features Fully revised for the new Station 5 and completely updated throughout. Promotes understanding and deeper learning of modern medicine applicable to PACES and the specialist registrar. Emphasis on clinical assessment – history-taking, examination and communication skills – equipping candidates with appropriate differential diagnoses from which to develop the right diagnosis. Encourages candidates to question why a diagnosis has arisen and consider its consequences. For example, ‘Heat failure’ is a not a diagnosis until a candidate has considered the differential diagnoses of breathlessness and decided why heart failure is most likely, and then considered its cause (not always ischaemic heart disease), its presentation (acute, chronic, left or right ventricular or both) and, most importantly, the effects of it and its treatments on a patient’s life. This 3rd edition of PACES for the MRCP continues to provide fully revised, up-to-date, evidence-based coverage of investigations and treatments. Whilst the emphasis of PACES is on clinical skills, candidates who understand when, for example, a patient with rheumatoid arthritis might benefit from a biologic agent and how this will influence inflammatory disease, is better equipped for success.

MRCP PACES is widely regarded as the most challenging hurdle to obtaining membership to the Royal College of Physicians. Passing the exam requires more than knowledge alone and many incredibly talented doctors fail every year due to various factors. The most common failure point is scoring poorly on the 'physical signs' strand of the exam. This book is designed to be a complete yet concise guide to the MRCP PACES examination and will guide you through the stations in a systematic way to help you score top marks in the exam. This book does not replace examining patients to elicit signs, and omitting this step in your preparation is a sure way to fail! This book will also be useful for medical students doing their OSCE's who are keen to get an edge over their peers, though the level of detail will be greater than required. This book will cover the key aspects of the exam including: (1)The exam format (2) Examination routines (3) Common and important cases represented in the PACES exam (4) Key physical findings (5) Presentation techniques for the different stations (6) Useful skills to narrow the differential diagnosis from the end of the bed. It is the book we wish we had when we sat the MRCP PACES exam!
