James Hayes has been helping trainees pass the FACEM exam since the dawn of time. Here is how Neil Long describes the study group that James leads:
The Victorian Registrar Study Group is held in at the Australasian College of Emergency Medicine Headquarters at West Melbourne on Saturday mornings, and has been a very great success since its inception.It was developed from Dr James Hayes’ Victorian Registrars Teaching program that ran from the Northern Hospital for just on 15 years. When this program was terminated in 2013, the current program at the College was created by a group of highly esteemed educators, (many of whom were students in James old study groups), dedicated to the finest principals of FOAMed.
The program is aimed as a “finishing school” for those about to sit their Fellowship exams.
It is – of course – not meant to replace any local programs – but rather supplement and compliment them.
It also allows for exposure to some of the best educators from across the state of Victoria as well as the promotion of future professional links and friendships between colleagues – breaking “silos” and the like – a good thing as you may not even get to meet half your colleagues otherwise!
We have some of the best teachers/ examiners / experts in their fields from across Melbourne and Geelong for these sessions
If interested in joining the group for this year – you can email James: james.hayesATnh.org.au
Feeling left out? Let us know if you have your own open study group in your area and we will happily advertise. Otherwise consider starting your own group and continue James’ ethos throughout Australasia.The 2020 program is now live:
