Mock CSA

Posted 16 November 2018

The Mock CSA is just over 3 weeks away on the 6th December 2018. All trainees who are eligible to attend the mock CSA should have received an email confirming which session they have been allocated to. If you feel you should be attending the CSA but have not received an email please contact us to clarify. Trainees who have attended the Mock CSA event before or you have already passed the CSA then you are not eligible to attend this event.

The Mock CSA this year will be held in Kingspan stadium; we have not used this venue for this event before but look forward to the experience. We hope that all ST3 trainees attending find the event a useful tool in practicing for their upcoming CSA exam. Upon arrival at Kingspan, enter the venue via the Mount Merrion entrance; trainees should make their way to the Nevin Spence centre for registration and a briefing. You will be escorted to the premium stand once it is time for the stations to commence and each trainee will get to experience 5 different cases.

Trainers and actors should make their way to the A&L Goodbody Lounge upon arrival for registration and calibration.

The registration locations are marked on the map below:

Floor Plan

Members of the GP Specialty Training admin team will be on hand to help direct everyone and coordinate the day.

If you have any queries about the event please contact Elly at

We look forward to seeing you all there.
