Book/Novel Title: The Easy Guide to OSCEs for Final Year Medical Students
This book presents a foreword by Edward Lamuren. The new final year Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) test a broad range of practical skills, knowledge, examination technique and communication abilities, and can be a daunting prospect. This comprehensive revision aid covers, in a self-assessment format, over 100 sample OSCE stations including the standard history, examination and general skills stations. It also covers the newly designed stations such as investigation of choice, acute medical management, medical advice for specific conditions and communication skills. The clear layout and easy to read style prepares students for the examination environment and focuses on the specific areas and responses examiners look for. The step-by-step guide provided for each OSCE station includes techniques on how to pass, what to say, what to ask for and what to do. ‘This book presents the OSCEs in a way that gives the reader a simple and comprehensive system by which they should approach each station. Refreshing and highly relevant. All clinical knowledge has been thoroughly researched and is in line with current evidence and guidelines. This is an excellent book that will reward all those who study and apply it in the all-important finals!’ – Edward Lamuren, in the Foreword.
