Kamikaze Clinical Fellowship Course – Melbourne/Sydney- March and April 2014

The Kamikaze Clinical Fellowship Course is a 5 week course

4 weeks of outstanding virtual environment

including videos of short cases as well as Do’s and Don’ts of the Long Case and the SCE. There are skype SCE’s and Long Cases and interactive discussion about how to approach this exam.

There are the two FACE to FACE pair of days– one in Sydney and one in Melbourne, so you don’t have to travel far. You come to one of these and we refine your techniques.

Once you have your Written Fellowship done, you then get the invite to the Clinical. Be READY! Be sure to get it! Up to 50% of people pass the written and don’t get the clinical.

Don’t worry about not getting the written- you will, but if you don’t you don’t lose your money, you get to defer to the next one.

Only 15 places available in Melbourne and 15 in Sydney.

This is 2 days of intense examination teaching.

Just look at this amazing program:

Week 1: (March 24th)

Cardiovascular System Examination

You will get a cardiac exam, and perhaps two, in your short cases; why not be an expert?

We cover the cardiac exam in 6 components:

  1.         Important cardiac exam points

                  2.         General inspection and The Hands

                  3.         Examination of the neck

                  4.         The praecordium

                  5.         The moves

                  6.         Putting it together so it makes sense

Cranial Nerves Examination

This is the one examination that most people hate – no more!  Peter Kas’s 3 part approach which includes the touch – no touch method makes cranial nerves easy.

Week 2:   (April 3rd)

The Upper and Lower Limb Exam

We look at the neurological, vascular and rheumatological/orthopaedic aspects of the exam.

The Examination of the Hand

We cover the hand examination in detail, including peripheral stigmata and nail abnormalities.

We cover the claw hand as well as various aspects of median and ulnar nerve deficits.

Higher Centres

This is a simple and straightforward approach to remembering the examination of higher centres.

Aortic Stenosis

The Long Case

It’s all about communication.  It’s about taking the examiner on a journey, that shows them you can listen and examine and then present in the best format.

Learn the simplest presentation approaches as communicated by the examiners themselves.


Some candidates call this the oral SAQ.  It’s more than that.  It’s about rapidly understanding what the question and examiner is asking and adapting.

Learn the ‘speak’.

Learn the approach.

Week 3:   (April 10th)

The Respiratory Examination

We look at going over the approach of chest examination.  Also covered is what can be left in and what can be left out.
