There are a huge amount of possible examinations to choose from and you should be
competent to perform all of them by finals. Pick ones from our examination notes
page and examine each other. Read through the notes to check you covered everything
and use our generic OSCE examination marksheet.
In early clinical years, you will normally be examining normal volunteers so just
practice on each other. In later clinical years, however, you will have patients
with stable chronic diseases (commonest examples shown here). Try to seek patients
out on the wards with these conditions and examine them while your colleague assesses
you under exam conditions.
Use your medical school’s timing and remember to give a 1-2 minute remaining bell
as your medical school would normally do. Timer link:
