Trainees must have passed the Part 1 written examination within the last 7 years before taking PACES. The examination sets rigorous standards to ensure that trainees are competent across a range of skills and ready to provide a high standard of care to patients. In PACES, candidates are assessed on their ability to carry out essential clinical skills. There are five clinical stations where there are either patients with a given condition, or trained stand-ins (surrogates).
