SCA revision made easy with over 150 cases

The Geeky Medics bank of 150+Β SCA cases provides everything you need to revise for the Simulated Consultation Assessment (SCA).Β 

Each case has been crafted to reflect the SCA format accurately and reviewed by expert authors, including GP trainers and Training Program Directors (TPDs).

Our innovative Group Practice Mode makes it easy to prepare with others, including assigning roles and providing feedback for later review.

Our online platform has been built to vastly improve the experience of preparing for the SCA compared to using a SCA case book.
