You are a junior doctor covering a busy acute medical Unit on Friday and there is a long list of patients to be seen and you are feeling the pressure. Who would you prioritise:

a) A 21 year old student who has been referred by her GP with a 'panic attack'

b) A 63 year old lady called in following a clinic appointment with an abnormal blood test

c) A 71 year old man with breathlessness and loss of consciousness

d) A 50 year old man returning from a 2 week holiday in South Africa complaining of diarrhoea and a rash

This consultant led course is full of real life challenging cases that will expand your knowledge of acute presentations and improve your management plans. It will help you survive your oncall shifts as well as the post-take ward rounds.
