Clinical Skills Assessment.
The Clinical Skills Assessment (CSA) is an essential component of the MRCGP, and is ‘an assessment of a doctor’s ability to integrate and apply clinical, professional, communication and practical skills appropriate for general practice’.
GPStRs will be eligible to take the CSA when they are in ST3 (the third and final year of their GP specialty training).
For more information visit the RCGP website.
Al trainees will be expected to attempt this exam at least twice whilst in training. If there are reasons why trainees feel they are unable to do this, they should discuss these at the earliest possible opportunity with their Educational Supervisor and record on their eportfolio.
