As the iMeducate team prepares for the imminent launch of the FACEM revision course, we wanted to share some of the fantastic feedback we have received about the ACEM MCQs. We are so glad the platform has proved such a fantastic resource for your revision and thank you for sharing your testimonials.
“Thanks so much for maintaining such a great site. By far the best revision tool around”.

“With fast, sleek features and an ever growing question bank, iMeducate was an essential adjunct in helping me pass my ED Primaries. Much more effective that trawling through paper questions and having to research them myself. Well worth the money. Thanks guys!”

“I just completed my Primary Exams and got through all 4 subjects. Just emailing to express my thanks for being such a great resource for us. If it wasn’t for the website I am pretty sure I would not be where I am today. Thank you and keep going well with your work”.

Just received a great email from one of our South African FCEM trainees. Congratulations to her on such a wonderful result! Glad we’re serving the global medical community!
“I subscribed to iMeducate earlier this year in order to prepare for the FCEM (SA) primaries. In South Africa, our exams consist of two written exams and an MCQ. The MCQ is always the dreaded component, as most people fail it. Having this knowledge, I searched for EM MCQs and happily found iMeducate, which I used to help me prepare.
Wrote the exam, and happy to say, I came first in the MCQ. Thanks a lot for your help, and for making this resource available! I have given the site details to another candidate writing next year, and will give it to others when I get the chance”.

Best of luck to the troops taking the Part 1 ACEM examination this week!
Hopefully all the hard work and revision will pay off
From the iMeducate team
With the advent of a new online educational platform, it is only fitting that the iMeducate team enter the social media space to enhance discussion, answer feedback and develop future educational strategies.
The next stage of iMeducate development will use the current social media platforms to increase the level of interaction firstly with the iMeducate team, and secondly within the user groups. Users will be able to find friends on iMeducate using their social media contact lists, interact with colleagues and ultimately ‘show off’ your cumulative scores on the iMeducate leader board!
Interesting times ahead!
For now we will leave you with our social media contacts – just click on the icons…and we will see you in the virtual world!
With the help of the guys at The Frontier Group working busily away on the backend of the website, we are getting closer to the full beta launch of iMeducate.
We are continuing to grow our elite band of medical editors and clinical champions every week, and will introduce new members through the iMeducate blog.
