I personally took ~5 days to prepare for CASPer, and I had also previously read ‘Doing Right’ by Philip C. Hebert which is a great intro guide to Canadian medical ethics.

During my prep time I made a document that outlines many of the major medical ethical topics, and also provides some tips on conflict resolution. The rest of my prep time was spent just doing a bunch of practice. There are plenty of free practice resources online, and a large component of CASPer (once you’ve got the foundations of medical ethics down) is practicing the art of being able to concisely and clearly get down a well structured answer within the time constraints of the test. It’s tough at first, but it will come with practice, and you definitely want to have it down before test day.

I lost my father and grandfather to heart disease, so it’s a cause that is very important to my family and I. Thank you!
