THE ALL-STAR INTERNATIONAL COURSE FACULTY
The national faculty includes David Knight (Christchurch ICU), Ywain Lawrey (North Shore ICU), Laurence Walker (Auckland CVICU), Fiona Miles (Starship PICU), and Louise Trent (Hawke’s Bay ICU). Local Wellington Intensivists include Chris Poynter (course convener), Alex Psirides, Ben Barry, Shawn Sturland, Caroline Murphy (co-convener) & Kate Tietjens. Brendan Arnold also joins us from the Infectious Diseases department.
The New Zealand faculty also includes Dr.Elliot Bell, a Clinical Psychologist from Otago University.
He will lecture on the cognitive & behavioural aspects of exam preparation & technique and provide video viva analysis for each Stream 1 candidate (see below) to help optimise individual exam performance.
- Stream 1 exposes candidates to timed, exam condition, hot case & viva scenarios with some tutorial adjuncts. It is targeted at preparation for the oral & clinical component of the Fellowship exam.
- Stream 2 is based on interactive tutorials & short answer question practice combined with observation of Stream 1. It is targeted at earlier exam preparation with a heavier focus on the written component of the Fellowship exam.
Course costs are outlined below. Payment details will be sent after registration.
The costs of both streams are equal to remove a dependency on industry sponsorship.
Payment can be made by cheque, direct bank transfer or credit card online (suitable for international candidates).
STREAM 1: Post-Written Exam
Lectures + Hot Cases + Vivas
STREAM 2: Pre-Written Exam
Lectures + Observing Stream 1
All fees include morning tea & lunch as well as the course dinner with the faculty at a Wellington restaurant.
To keep candidate costs to a minimum and still allow an international faculty of some repute, the course is only possible due to generous funding from ANZICS New Zealand. This also allows us to minimise commercial sponsorship and ensure the course is relevant & focused on the needs of those sitting the exam. We are very grateful for their continued support and financial assistance in running this course.
