Coming soon

Viva/spotter stations usually involve a patient with a clear abnormality. You are generally expected to perform a brief, focused examination of the abnormality prior to being asked a series of questions. You may be allowed to ask the patient a few questions to identify other symptoms of their condition.

 

All the common stations are on our vivas notes page. Pick and choose and find images on the internet to practice with. Try to find patients on the wards with viva-type conditions and practice performing focused examinations.

 

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:
