Provided by Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh
About the course
This course is aimed at FY2 and above, and primarily those preparing for the Intercollegiate Part B MRCS Examination. It is designed to help improve candidates' performance in the MRCS Part B Examination via practice sessions with 'mock' MRCS OSCE stations and discussions with examiners on the pitfalls and problems commonly encountered with the examination process. The course structure includes short lectures, discussion groups and OSCE stations. Please note that participants can attend both this course and The Aberdeen MOCK MRCS OSCE Course if they wish.
Candidates preparing for the Intercollegiate MRCS Part B (OSCE) Examination.
This two day course uses a combination of presentations, discussion groups, practice sessions and individual feedback given by tutors experienced in the MRCS Exam. A major component of the course is the series of simulated MRCS OSCE stations covering clinical and procedural skills, applied surgical science and critical care, anatomy and surgical pathology and communication skills. Clinical OSCE stations use both real and simulated patients and examiners give structured individual feedback with candidates both observing and taking part in the mock sessions. This course offers an ideal opportunity to apply knowledge gained on ‘Anatomy for MRCS OSCEs’ and the two courses are regularly run alongside each other.
