National Review Course

Person on laptop



The National Review Course (NRC) in Emergency Medicine at Queen's University has been helping prepare candidates for the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada EM certification examinations since 2002.  Drawing on the expertise of an outstanding faculty of emergency physicians from across Canada, the course reviews high-yield core topics in the discipline, with a focus on current evidence-based practice.  In addition to interactive plenary presentations, an essential and highly-rated element of the course is the opportunity for registrants to enhance their exam-taking skills and further augment their clinical learning through participation in a series of practice oral examinations, with real-time feedback on performance from faculty and peers.
