Fellowship STUDY package:

There  are 41 courses with each offering 1-2 hours of elearning. The format of each course is based on a topic relevant to rehabilitation medicine in Australia and New Zealand. It is taught through a combination short answer questions and multiple choice questions.

This course is not intended to teach new information but to review high-yield topics, or commonly tested knowledge. The course also has lots of case studies which is great for consolidating knowledge and learning to apply knowledge in a practical way.  

The courses do not cover amputees and spinal cord medicine in depth as there are currently courses available in Australia for these subspecialities.

The course is intended for trainees who are planning to sit for the fellowship MCQ/MEQ and/or fellowship OSCE.


Fellowship EXAM package:

This course is a type of shadow education which imitates the mainstream college testing as much of the tutoring provided is matched to the test being prepared for. So this course has timed exams written in a similar manner as the real exams. However, as it is delivered purely online, it cannot tests critical areas of clinical examination, procedural skills and interactive communication. Skills and pertaining to the latter aspects should be obtain through your training positions in hospitals and practiced in small study groups with your peers.


Module 1 & 2 EXAM package:

The 5 MCQ papers are set at different pass rates (from 45% to 65%) to help you improve. Answers are not revealed until you pass (as frustrating as this may be, you will learn better if you search for the answers yourself). Our message is not to leave doing the MCQ papers until the last 1-2 months. The papers should help you identify areas of weakness which should prompt you to do more reading in those subject areas.

The practice Module 2 paper is set up in a manner similar to the real OSCEs. Be critical when you self mark to get an idea how marks are allocated. The questions are timed to make you practice getting your answers in a timely manner. However, as it is delivered purely online, it cannot tests critical areas of clinical examination, procedural skills and interactive communication. Skills and pertaining to the latter aspects should be obtain through your training positions in hospitals and practiced in small study groups with your peers.


ADVANTAGES of e-learning:

Rehab trainees have the flexibility to study in their own time and location. Program materials can be accessed on mobiles and tablets with iOS, Android or Windows systems. Program materials can also be accessed using a web browser (although some hospitals may make this difficult through their firewall). You can have multiple attempts with some of the tests. The tests are timed to give you practice providing answers under the pressure of limited time. You can attempt the tests only when you feel you are ready, there helping you gain more control. You will experience less exam anxiety when you get good feedback and get the answers correct. If you are not able to get the answers right, hopefully this will motivate you to explore that particular subject matter a bit more fully.

These courses do not replace face to face teaching, teaching real cases in hospitals, peer to peer discussions and study groups. But in the COVID-19 pandemic, this is the best we can offer.
