The syllabus for the examination fully integrates basic science and clinical knowledge. The aim of the syllabus is to set out for candidates a comprehensive description of the breadth and depth of the knowledge, skills and attributes expected of them. The syllabus thus provides a framework around which a programme of preparation and revision can be structured. It also sets out the areas in which candidates will be examined.
