How do we stop grown men weeping?
Young 'Nelson's' story:
December 3, 2013
'I am so low and practically crying in private every day. Simple things like looking at my thermometer or otoscope make me sad. I am still waiting for the panel appointment and trying to get permission from the College to reapply for the CSA exam. Even though I have only applied for the exam 3 times, it read that I have sat it 4 times on my e-portfolio because of the re-sit of an attempt when the college invited me to re-sit due to technical errors.'
US Physician donates to BAPIO after receiving a long distance call from his Indian brother weeping for the first time in his life after failing CSA again.
Asian IMG GP trainees band together to donate between £500-£5000 to the BAPIO CSA Judicial Review scheduled for early 2014.
I will speak out until this unfair exam is stopped! Nelson Mandela was the greatest anti-apartheid leader! We must not let this actor CSA exam lead to an unintentional apartheid in our GP profession! Cum scientia CARITAS! And our profession may be severely lacking in caritas with the continuation of the actor CSA exam. Never before in all my years as a doctor both in the US and UK, have I ever come across so many depressed and suicidal doctors who weep as they cannot pass the actor CSA exam. Please please give them a humane option such as video submission of NHS surgery consultations with real patients with real illnesses. The post traumatic stress, chronic anxiety and nerves make it virtually impossible for them to show their true abilities in an artificial setting with actors faking.
