    Canadian Royal College Internal Medicine Exam

    Did anybody pass or is anyone preparing for the Canadian Royal College Internal Medicine exam? I am a canadian foreign grad, I did my residency in the states and I passed the American Board of Internal Medicine, but I failed the Canadian exam on my first attempt. I need advice re: books to read, how to prepare, especially for the oral exam. Also, are there any prep courses? Please help...

    internal medicine

    Hello,
    To be eligible in Ontario for an FRCP status in internal medicine, you really must know your specialty well as the questions rotate and seldom repeat ! very different than USMLE or MCCEE/MCQE.......
    Board specialties exams, must use the board series books, DVDs whatever you can grab, and ask specialists whom passed it.
    I am a radiologist, and to pass the board, we had to review all notes, books we used in our residency training, also reviewing peer reviewed journals of up to date info, stats and public health may provide some benefit,
    good luck

    RCPSC IM exam

    I have about a dozen old RCPSC internal medicine exams from the last few years.

    Would like to share these with others who are willing to share theirs.

    Cheers.

    The best books for physical exam are:
    1) Clinical Examination by Talley and O'Connor - all Canadians use it (a must!)
    2) Examination Medicine by Talley and O'Connor - also is great with most common scenarios
    3) "Aids to the examination of the peripheral nervous system" - the must for peripheral nerve exam - one of the favourite topics!
    4) Core Clinical Skills for <a target=new href=http://www.Amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/007138135X/valuetheplace-20>OSCE</a> in Medicine by Dorman and O'Neill - can be helpful

    Good luck!


    In addition I recommend:

    1. Know your guidelines (esp Canadian ones)
    2. Hoppenfeld for MSK exam

    RCC exam

    I enrolled for the RCC IM exam this year but have postponed it until 2007. I will be doing an additional PGY year in Ontario, and hope to team up with senior IM resident study groups to get some cases. I may be able to get some cases/questions in the upcoming year and provide them.

    Does anybody have any suggestions for a good book in peri-operative medicine (pre-op evaluation, post op follow up, etc) for the Royal College exam?

    Yes you can work in US but....

    choice to return is I guess a personal one. If you are on an HIB or J1 then you can convert your status by finding the appropriate job after your residency. If you return, you can be physically here when the Leafs take cup this year!
