Welcome

to oxfordpsych

Since 2007, we have been helping psychiatrists prepare for the Royal College of Psychiatrists CASC exams in the UK, Dublin, Singapore, Malaysia, Hong Kong, UAE, Egypt and India. 

We are passionate about compassionate communication and our training over the past 13 years has been underpinned by adult learning theory. 

The current COVID pandemic has caused widespread disturbance in several areas. During these challenging and difficult times, we hope that you are staying safe and well. 

We are closely monitoring the situation with regards to the MRCPsych CASC exams and constantly updating the way we deliver our training courses. As per the RCPsych announcement in June 2020, the CASC exams will be held online in September and October 2020. 

In line with this announcement, we have developed a new Oxfordpsych Online CASC training package that would enable you to prepare effectively for the online format of the CASC exams. We have online courses avaiable in July and August and also in September and October, in line with the two CASC sittings. The Oxfordpsych CASC online course would help you learn skills to conduct online consultations with confidence and pass the online CASC exams. 

The Oxfordpsych CASC online course is conducted by consultant psychiatrists with an extensive experience of the CASC exams and professional actors who have participated in the CASC exams. 

The new Oxfordpsych CASC online training courses have been designed carefully to prevent “zoom fatigue” by distributing the sessions over 2 or 3 or 4 days.

 Only a small number of places are available for each course to ensure a supportive learning environment.

Booking is also open for the online CASC mock exams, with new dates now also available in October. 

Please visit the online booking page for more details. 

For more information, please see the relevant pages, and feel free to get in touch if you have any questions - we are always happy to help!

At Oxfordpsych, we believe that working overseas should not reduce your chances of passing the CASC exam, so we are bringing our Comprehensive CASC Courses to you!

Our Comprehensive CASC Courses overseas - recently held in Dublin, Egypt, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Malaysia and India - focus on the skills specifically needed for psychiatrists working in countries other than the UK. In addtion to looking at differences in communication and interview styles, there are specific sessions focusing on UK Mental Health legislation and sevices, and how this knowledge particularly impacts on management, in line with the new CASC circuit format.

"I found the Mock CASC Exam very useful - it really helped to reduce my anxiety and have an idea of what to expect. I passed the same number of stations as in the real exam, so I think it is a good reflection of the real thing. I would recommend the Mock to everyone." Sheffield 2016
