Generic Training: This follow on session introduces you on how to 'RolePlay'  (dont worry you may wish only to take part in examinations only) where we discuss and supported by one of our experienced Sps will give you the chance to watch an interaction with a medical student with the experienced SP, then you will have the opportunity to try it yourself.

Specialist Training: These sessions are organised outwith the normal training sessions they are to provide you support and information on a teaching session that is usually a bit more demanding scenario.
