Course Director - Dr Nigel Giam
Hello! My name is Nigel Giam and I have been involved in delivering courses in
medical education since 1998.

I qualified as a GP in 2002 from SLOVTS (Guys and St Thomas' VTS) having
previously worked as a medical registrar and OSCE/PACES Course Organiser at
St.Thomas'. I work as a GP Trainer and as an Educational Supervisor in a
teaching practice in North West London.

I have been a GP Training Programme Director for the St Mary's VTS since 2008
and work also as a Senior OSCE Examiner, Lecturer and Clinical Skills Tutor for
all undergraduate years at Kings College School of Medicine.

I was the National London RCGP Faculties MRCGP Course Director and a
previous RCGP Examiner from 2003-2007 and have worked with the AiT
committees of both the London Deanery and the RCGP Faculties to support STs
in training since 2000.

I attained a Distinction in the MRCGP in 2002 and during my preparation I realised
the importance of practice and peer support in attaining success in the exam and

Membership to the RCGP does not stop at the exam - we strive to help others in
not only attaining the MRCGP but to give an insight into the role of prospective
membership and your career in general practice.

The value of membership to a body that can support your continuing educational
needs cannot be underestimated at a time when general practice faces many

I hope that the MRCGP will bring you interesting opportunities and challenges
The Courses
Mentor Courses provides invaluable insight from an experienced course organiser
who has run RCGP courses with college examiners at a national level.

The course has to date helped thousands of trainees attain the MRCGP and
supports hundreds of GP's every year on their pathway to exam success.

When the Mentor MRCGP preparation course was set up in 2004, it was with the
intention of providing something different. No crash course agendas, no large
room lectures, no spoon feeding but an emphasis on practical exam technique in
small supportive groups.

Our ethos is simple - to provide a fun, personal course tailored to your learning
needs and costed to always give trainees value for money.

We are fully aware of the huge expenditure of the assessment process and aim
always at being the most cost-effective course nationally.

All courses carry approval for deanery educational re-imbursement.

We value peer support and appreciate that the MRCGP can be a stressful
experience - help is always at hand. Whether you are sitting the MRCGP for the
first time or as a re-sit - support will always be provided before, during and after
the course.

I wish you all the best in your preparation and look forward to meeting you on the
Mentor MRCGP course!
