MRCP(UK) Medical Director, Professor Andrew Elder, and International Associate Medical Director, Dr Donald Farquhar will be participating in APICON, the annual Association of Physicians of India conference, in Mumbai at end of January 2017.

The Associations of Physicians of India is a professional body of consultant physicians formed in 1944, and with over 15,000 members is the leading physicians’ fraternity in India.

Professor Elder will be presenting on the value of core bedside skills of history taking and physical examination in contemporary medical practice and Dr Farquhar will talk about PACES, the world’s largest international postgraduate clinical skills examination. They will also conduct a workshop for a group of attendees, exploring the value of high stakes assessment of bedside clinical skills in more detail.

For more information about the conference see the APICON website.

Professor Elder said, “This is the first time that MRCP(UK) has presented at APICON and we are looking forward to meeting colleagues from India, old and new, at this prestigious meeting. Our own examinations, including PACES, are well known to physicians in India, but alternative assessment systems exist in India and we look forward to learning about these and exploring ideas with colleagues who share our own belief in the continuing importance of clinical skills.”
