“I wanted to say thank you for your assistance in getting through the fellowship exams. I have now passed the OSCE and OCI first go and am very relieved that the examination phase of my training is over. I used all your available resources for both the writtens and the clinicals over the past 18 months and am grateful that you decided to fill the gap in training resources. In particular I found that the CTF OCI Course transformed the way I approached that exam which no doubt helped me get over the line first time. Thanks again."
“I passed the clinicals on the first attempt with the CTF Course as my main preparation tool. Also Psych Interview helped me a lot in preparing for the MOSCE's. I don’t think passing the exam would have been possible without these two courses, and I am strongly recommending them to everyone. I think it is the best investment I have done in my life. Thanks for masterminding such an innovative course.”
“I found the Psych Interview videos very helpful for my CASC preparations. The pace of the interviews, the tips and the use of ICD 10 / DSM criterias were very helpful. I will definitely be recommending it to my friends and colleagues. Thank you.”
“I have the CASC exam next week, and was browsing the web in the hope of finding something useful. I came across your clip on YouTube, and followed the link to your site. I am really disappointed not to have found you earlier, as the two demo videos were very good. Although a different format to the CASC exam, the content is completely relevant. Congratulations on a great training resource - it puts our own support to shame.”
“I have passed the Exemption Candidate Exam in the first go. I attended the CTF workshop, went through the CTF course booklets on OCI and OSCE, and also practiced with the videos on Psych Interview. I definitely believe that your course materials have been extremely useful in my cruising through the fellowship exam! Thank you for the good work you are doing for the student community and the patients at large.”
“Hi Psych Interview. Just want to say a big THANK YOU for amazing videos. I absolutely love them. Your contribution to Registrars' education and training is incredible.”
“Very well designed, with quality interviews; has helped me to change and reflect upon my old style.”
"I have eventually passed the fellowship exam this time. Certainly material in your preparation course and psych interview is of highest standard. I modified my interview techniques based on learning videos which eventually worked for me. Thanks."
"Really enjoyed the course - BEST value for money. Don't go to anyone else!"
"The CTF OCI Course should be integrated into mainstream teaching as part of psychiatric training from first year. As for the rest of us, it serves as a catalyst for integration of knowledge and experience gained through years of public service work."
"Thank you for your tremendous effort and brilliant course. I absolutely learned heaps and wish this had existed years ago! Many Thanks again."
"No exam candidate should go for exams without CTF which is a passport to enter the college."
"Psych Interview helped me to improve my communication skills and my confidence to face CASC."
"This course is just what the floundering trainee needs to hone down skills for the clinical exam. Excellent approach to formulation and management that can be applied to any case."
"For those new to the RANZCP style and expectations this is an invaluable course which, if taken early on in exam preparation, will save time, effort and money."
"I was ambivalent about attending this course but now I'm very happy that I managed to attend as I found it very useful. Many Thanks."
“I have passed the MOCI exam this time. Thanks a lot for your support. The course held in January was really helpul and boosted my morale before the exam."
“I passed my written exam on the first go and I couldn't have done it without the CTF Course and the Psych Evidence Online Course, so thank you to the Psych Team."
“Hi! Just wanted to let you know how impressed I was with the CTF written examinations prep. The course was efficient and comprehensive, and gave a great reflection of the questions included in the real exam. I sat the writtens in March 2012 (in my second year of training) and passed first time! Thank you so much."
“I've gotten through the written exam. The CTF Course was of great help; thanks to your team."
Timely, thorough and exam-focused. I would highly recommend the CTF OCI Course to my colleagues!
The CTF OCI Course is very exam-focused, saves a lot of time.
I found the attention to structure in assessment, formulation and management highly beneficial. I feel much more confident after attending the CTF OCI Course.
I found the CTF OCI Coursevery useful in terms of providing a framework and how to approach the clinical exam.
I have finally passed my CASC examinations and I cannot deny that Psych Interview played an important role in preparing me for the exams. I learnt to give my interview more structure and use excellent interview skills which were displayed by Dr Rege who has been a great help. Thanks again to all staff involved in the making of the videos. Your hard work is not in vain!
Just wanted to let you know that I passed my writtens. Thank you - I couldn't have done it without your course.
The best decision I made in terms of preparation for the Clinicals. The structure provided by the course is invaluable.
I got through the written exam held in August 2012. Thank you very much for the guidance provided in the CTF course. Being new to Australian Mental Health Services and other systems in place, this course was really helpful for me to get familiar with it. Thank you again!
I would like to express my gratitude and thank you for your videos of CASC practice that helped me to pass MRCPSych exam.
I am pleased to inform you that I passed OSCE in first attempt. I am still awaiting my results for OCI. Thank you very much for the course and the videos that I found very informative and helpful for exam preparation.
I have enjoyed the quality of the programme on the Medical Symposium for Psychiatrists in Sydney on 17/11/12. I am GP with deep interest in Psych and I enjoyed your positive energy in the meeting.
Just a quick note to congratulate you on an excellent Symposium. It was informative and interesting with excellent speakers.
I passed my writtens:) Thank you very much for your help. The CTF Course was definitely very useful for me.
Excellent videos! In Psychiatry I think trainees do not get the opportunity to sit in on interviews conducted by consultants as often as they should. Therefore these videos are excellent for modelling purposes not only for exams but for actual clinical practice.
The Psych Scene Medical Symposium for Psychiatrists was the best and most stimulating continuing education conference I have attended for many years.
I think the course is excellent. Dr Rege is an inspirational doctor and I look forward to the OSCE course as well!
Once again an excellent course. They say manic people have infectious gaiety. Dr Rege has infectious competence. Thanks again!
Sanil is a very good teacher and does and excellent job. The content of the course is great and to the point.
This course provides excellent guide especially to IMGs in their clinical practice and exam preparation.
The CTF OCI/M-OCI course is excellent and has a strong exam focus which is exactly what we need. Although we do attend the OCI course conducted by our local training committee... it is not the same!
Overall, brilliant course for orientating exam candidates to the exam formats, questions and efforts/domains to focus on passing. It is also useful for refreshing senior psychiatrists. I would recommend it to anyone about to sit the exams with little idea of what the exams entail and how best to pass them.
Fantastic teacher, truly gifted. Never thought it was possible to learn statistics in one day.
It was really good overview with broad material covered and great relevance for the exam. Thank you very much for your effort!
