The morning session focussed on the AKT exam and we were pleased to welcome Dr Sally Harkness – an RCGP examiner, who led a very informative session on how the exam is organised, the practicalities and how to prepare for it. They then got a chance to complete a mock exam which was followed by feedback on the answers and tips on exam technique and avoiding common pitfalls.
A break for lunch gave them all a chance to catch up with each other and the various members of the team.
The day then concluded with a couple of sessions on requirements for the year and the various opportunities available to help maximise their learning – condensed curriculum guides, core workshops and group teaching sessions to name a few.
After a brief Q+A session they went away armed with lots of information and enthusiasm to tackle the year ahead!
