"This extensive question bank covers the breadth of the Palliative Medicine SCE exam blueprint, and is therefore an invaluable revision resource for anyone sitting the exam, or just looking for a general palliative medicine CPD resource."
After completing my medical degree in 2007, I went on to specialise in Medical Oncology from the Università
degli Studi dell’Insubria, Italy in 2012. Following my specialisation, I completed my Palliative Medicine MSc (pass with merit) from King’s College London, and most recently specialised in General Medicine from the FMH.
Since 2018, I have worked as a Palliative Care Registrar for the Oncological Institute of Southern Switzerland, where I’m mainly responsible for inpatients on the palliative care ward. In addition, I’m involved in teaching activities
for palliative care nurses at SUPSO and SSSCI University, Switzerland.
I completed my MBCHB from Glasgow University (2004), followed by my MRCGP (2009), MSc in Clinical Education
from Queen's University Belfast (2014) and Palliative Medicine SCE (2019).
I am currently working as an ST6 in Palliative Medicine at the Northern Ireland Hospice, which provides inpatient care in an 18 bedded
Palliative Care Unit, community services and a Hospice Hub. I completed my training in February 2021 and look forward to starting as a Consultant!
I used StudyPRN to revise for my Palliative Medicine SCE. I found the format
of the questions and the reference links provided in the answers invaluable to my learning. StudyPRN are constantly trying to improve their question bank and range of authors, including people like myself, who have recently sat the exam and
are familiar with the content and knowledge required to succeed.
After graduating with an MBBCh (Hons) from the University of Wales College of Medicine, I went on to achieve
other professional qualifications including my MRCP(UK); Postgraduate Diploma and MSc in Palliative Medicine (Distinction) from Cardiff University; and my Postgraduate Diploma in Medical Education awarded by Cardiff University. I am a Fellow
of the Higher Education Training Authority (2011), a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (2015), and a Member of the Academy of Medical Educators UK (2016).
Currently, I am working as a Palliative Medicine Consultant
at both the Cwm Taf Local Health Board and Hospice of the Valleys. Additionally, I am an honorary lecturer and examiner for undergraduate medical training at Cardiff University, a tutor on the Postgraduate Diploma and MSc courses in Palliative
Medicine with Cardiff University, and a Royal College of Physicians continuing professional development (CPD) advisor for palliative medicine.
I am a Palliative Medicine Consultant, working at City Hospice in Cardiff, providing community Palliative Care
to a population of 500,000 people. The role is both demanding and very rewarding.
My undergraduate training was completed in 2009, from Cardiff University where my honours included the Dean's Prize. I have subsequently
had a wide variety of medical roles, completed the MRCP, as well as the Cardiff University Diploma in Palliative Medicine with Distinction. I am now an Honorary Tutor for the Diploma.
I have contributed to StudyPRN as I
found it to be an invaluable resource whilst completing my own Palliative Medicine SCE.
I am a Palliative Medicine Trainee at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals, NHS. I am a current palliative medicine
trainee in the Yorkshire and Humber deanery.
I graduated from Cardiff University in 2014 and completed my foundation and core medical trainee in South Wales. I returned to South Yorkshire in 2019 to complete my specialist
palliative medicine training. I completed the MRCP (London) in 2018 and am currently undertaking an MSc in Medical Education at Cardiff University.
After completing medical training at Oxford University and University College London I completed Core
Medical Training in London and Palliative Medicine specialist training in the Oxford and Wales deaneries. I gained my Certificate of Completion of Training in 2017.
I am now a Palliative Care Consultant at Southmead
Hospital in Bristol with responsibility for the specialist palliative care of inpatients across all major specialties. I have a particular interest in education and have previously lectured on the Oxford Advanced Course for Pain and Symptom
Management as well as delivered lectures for Oxford, Cardiff and Swansea University Undergraduates.

Customer Reviews | Palliative Revision
Dr Joanna Carrim | Hospital Doctor (GB)
“I passed!!! I really do think StudyPRN was an important part for me to pass, especially as the usual face to face revision course was cancelled completely. Thank you very much. The questions are excellent and very relevant to the exam I sat.”

Kiran Kristipati | Healthcare Professional (AU)
“I can't thank enough for this wonderful resource for SCE Exams. I passed the SCE Palliative Medicine exam in my first attempt. I would certainly recommend making use of StudyPRN before the exam. Good Work StudyPRN Team.”
“Very useful resource and a good range of topics covered. There was much more focus in the Palliative Care SCE on the findings of cochrane reviews, which were examined in some detail. More questions on cochrane reviews relevant to palliative care would be very helpful in future”.
