Description / Abstract:


The College of Emergency Medicine (CEM) sets a structured answer question (SAQ) paper as part of the both its membership (MCEM) and fellowship (FCEM) examinations. These papers examine the whole breadth of the current Emergency Medicine curriculum in the form of short clinical scenarios, followed by a series of questions probing the candidate's clinical knowledge and data interpretation skills. Many candidates find negotiating CEM examination SAQs particularly challenging, in part due to the immense amount of material potentially examined at each diet but also the often unappreciated need for strict examination technique when answering each and every question. The aspiring candidate's problems are further compounded by the marked absence of helpful resources focused on the MCEM and FCEM SAQ examinations, particularly the lack of any practice materials.

We have written this book, Get Through MCEM Part B: Data Interpretation Questions, to fill that void. There follows more than 160 practice SAQ questions exploring all the corners of the CEM curriculum but focused on the most commonly examined areas. The authors and contributors have used their extensive experience teaching emergency medicine trainees to construct an informative, up-to-date and effective exam practice text. All areas of the curriculum relevant to the MCEM Part B exam are covered, all possible data interpretation included and a whole chapter is devoted to exam technique with advice on answering individual SAQs to gain maximum marks. Each question is followed by a detailed yet focused answer and discussion of the topic and further reading is recommended where relevant. Each chapter starts with a rundown of the important topics to revise and points to the knowledge necessary to succeed, including referencing many of the important guidelines used in everyday Emergency Department (ED) practice. All in all, we present an essential study guide and practice question book for all those serious about passing the MCEM Part B exam.

All though primarily aimed at those sitting the UK MCEM Part B examination, we believe this book should serve a wider audience and provides a learning resource not only for UK emergency medicine trainees but also all doctors at all levels of training in all countries who deal with acute emergencies in the unselected patient population presenting to their hospital. We hope you find this book useful for both exam revision and, more importantly, improving your knowledge and skill in the practice of Emergency Medicine.
