The viva component of the MRCS examination is traditionally the most feared and elusive part of the whole exam. Contained within the syllabus of core and system modules there are favourite examination topics which are more commonly asked than others. This new book covers all these popular subjects and illustrates them with sample viva-style questions. The answers give the candidate guidance on how to respond to these effectively and on what is required to pass the exam. This new book has been written to aid any candidate in preparing to sit a surgical viva, and will be of value to MRCS candidates as well as students for undergraduate surgical finals and surgical registrars prior to the exit examination. Covers the six major subject areas of the MRCS viva exam: applied surgical anatomy, operative surgery, clinical pathology, principles of surgery, applied physiology, and critical care. Includes coverage of the new communication skills section, designed to test the candidate's ability to communicate with patients and supply information to colleagues. Provides over 160 viva topics with subsidiary questions in the style of the exam. Targets the hardest part of the exam which has the lowest pass rate.
