    The Final FRCA Viva is the last postgraduate examination many trainees will ever take. Preparation is invaluable not only to pass the exam, but also to feel ready to take the next steps to becoming a senior registrar.

    This book provides short, succinct clinical cases that are mapped to the RCoA curriculum and are suitable for use when teaching or as a viva revision guide. Using this guide will ensure that FRCA exam questions can be answered correctly and confidently. It is suitable primarily for candidates preparing for the Final FRCA, but also helpful for those preparing for Primary FRCA, FFICM and EDIC, as well as for those running teaching courses and simulation programmes.
