nMRCGP Course Programme

Here's the programme for all forthcoming nMRCGP Courses. The programme has been tweaked following feedback from the first few courses to remove sessions on the Workplace Based Assessment and increase the time spent on the CSA.

The cost of the full course is 399, or 349 for the CSA sessions only. The venue in Swansea is the Village Hotel, Swansea with courses in Oxford being held at The Oxford Centre.

If you have any questions on the nMRCGP Course please feel free to drop us an email.
