A comparision of a weekend course and Clinical Skills Pro

Clinical Skills Pro

Weekend PACES course

Accessibility

We are here for you 24/7 as long as you have internet access so you can study at home, in your favourite coffee shop, wherever you like.

You only have access to the teaching for the weekend you are on the course.

Duration

You can access all the content on the Clinical Skills Pro site for as long as you have your subscription, the length of which can cover from the time you register up until your exam.

The course only lasts for 2 to 4 days.

Conditions covered

Clinical Skills has a huge range of professionally filmed videos, audio, animations and videos covering a huge number of conditions including rare diseases that you don’t regularly see on the ward. You can see the full list of conditions covered in our revision course by following this link here.

You are limited by what patients the course organisers could get hold off. It is unlikely that they are going to be able to give you the chance to access rare conditions. You are more likely to encounter conditions that you could have easily found on your own ward.

Cost

Clinical Skills Pro has a range of subscription packages to cover your revision time up to your exam. At the time of writing this post, packages start from £200 for 4 months access to all our content (including rare conditions) which you can revisit as many times as you want.

A weekend course can cost over £800 and that’s just for the course. You have to pay for travel, accommodation and food on top of this. Just for 2 days revision which might not cover what you are really wanting to revise.

Environment

Work from the comfort of your own home: It’s just you and our content all to yourself.

Crammed in with strangers and rushed around by a faculty that may try to embarrass you in front of your peers.
