  10. Hi Yazan. Congratulations on your graduation. I did a live Facebook video on job opportunities in the UK (in the Arabic language) in which I answered questions on applying and working in the UK. If you complete the PLAB, you could apply to psychiatry jobs. Training jobs may be more difficult to get, but there are many non-training jobs across the UK. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you need any further information.
  11. hi everyone , anyone interested to practice and revise for CASC over skype ? I need a partner to practice with . my skype id samrema27 . many thanks .
  12. hi.. what s your skype id?
  13. hey everyone i just signed up and i'm sorry if i posted in the wrong forum. I'll be graduating medical school later this year from The University Of Jordan , wanting to specialize in psychiatry since as long as i can remember, however unfortunately my country doesn't have any exceptional psychiatry programs, I've worked in mental health for the past two years starting one of the first mental health campaigns in Jordan with over 200 volunteers and various collaboration with the WHO, USAID, Autism MENA and the Jordanian Government. although i have a basic understanding of the process but what are the chances of me getting into psychiatry upon completing my PLAB's and foundation training, i know the U.S is a more popular option for IMG's due to a faster pace and higher income however i cant imagine working in a system where people are just perusing monetary gain. Thank you in advance.
  14. I’m trying to join the telegram study camp but I repeatedly get the message that’s it an invalid address... is it still possible to join? The CASC sep 18 study camp
  15. I suppose you're right when you compare yourself to a strawberry picker.
  16. £76.10 per hour capped rate. Assuming you have a month off a year I make that £144k (40hr week) and £86k after tax. Gosh.. Not worth getting out of bed for that! You know what most people make working minimum wage jobs? Sheesh
  17. Is anyone still looking for a study partner for the sep CASC? I am based in Dubai- would be great if I could find someone here with whom I could connect. Otherwise I’m prepared to try Skype, if anyone’s available.
  18. Got my results today. Passed paper A with 60.7% marks. Pass marks set by the college was 58.6% . Iam thankful for the information and guidance i got from this forum!
  19. Dear DRABHINAVR, I can confirm that whilst it varies marginally on location, average Consultant hourly rate for a Consultant Psychiatrist ranges between 153k - 171k pa. you should also note that is not uncommon for an to contribute towards some of the cost below, where you are a full time locum through and completed certain amount of hours, i know we do: - revalidation - appraisal - dbs - mandatory training - travel/ accommodation From a market demand view point, the need for consultant psychiatrists remains very strong. If we can be of any further assistance, please do let us know. ProMedical 01277 212 797

  21. Hi everyone, I just wanted to share with you some tips to ensure success in the CASC exams: 1) Understanding content - A basic knowledge of each topic is essential - Learn about commonly used medication and side effects - Have a method of explaining information in a way a lay person can understand 2) Communication - Show empathy in all situations - Summarize- this shows the examiner that you have a plan, shows the patient that you are listening to him/her and gives you time to think of your next step 3) Confidence - Examiners want to see potential colleagues- show that you know what you are talking about and that you trust what you are saying - Treat it like a real clinical event- it really reduces the pressure when you approach the scenario in the best interest of the patient, the way you would in real life. Dr Seshni Moodliar's ' Pass the CASC' has helped a great deal so did the mock CASC exams conducted by Birmingham and Oxford. Something extra I did was to acquire effective communication skills with the help of Mr Ed Kennedy who heads Procommskills . He is an experienced actor who has taken part in many mock exams and enacts the roles of patients one encounters in real life situations. The scenarios I practiced with Mr Kennedy and his valuable advice helped me understand the situation from the patient’s perspective, which significantly boosted my confidence. These sessions are especially useful for doctors living overseas as they would find it difficult to personally attend the mock exams held in the UK as this can be done online via Skype from the comfort of one's home. The link to Procommskills is : Finally, my best wishes to all of you.

  26. Hi Can I please be added to the CASC whatsapp group? My number is 07929381750 Thanks!
  27. Crapped rates, take home not worth getting out of bed for. You risk personal injury, malpractice complaint, car accident, no sick leave, no study leave, no worker's rights ... You're better off emigrating or going home.
  28. What's the locum market like at the moment? What rates are people getting at consultant level and how much does it translate in terms of take home pay. I hear different stories from different people. Some say its only marginally better than routine salary whilst others say you can earn much more..
