The MRCEM Part C/OSCE examination is a comprehensive test of a candidates clinical knowledge and skills as well as their communication, attitudes and behaviors. It consists of 16 consecutive OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) stations, plus two 'rest' stations. At each station the candidate must read a brief scenario, then enter 'role play' mode to manage a simulated clinical situation. These situations mimic the breadth of Emergency Medicine practice from managing a trauma team, resuscitating a sick child, taking a difficult history, suturing a wound or dealing with an angry relative. The examination relies heavily on actors and equipment to simulate real-life problems.

There is no doubt that the MRCEM Part C examination is a tough exam. According to the College about 70% of UK trainees pass the exam, while only about 25% of non-trainees pass. Good communications and other 'soft' skill are of paramount importance, but often overlooked and the cause of failure. As a result the exam is particularly challenging for those lacking a training in communication skills as expected for UK practice, and those who are not familiar with OSCE style examinations.

Following from our 10 yrs experience running highly regarded MRCEM Part C courses, our new two day MRCEM PartC/OSCE course provides candidates with even more OSCE teaching and practice in preparation for the real exam. A focus throughout on good communication and improving the candidates 'soft skills' further increase chances of success. You will be taught by our highly experienced faculty, all practicing Emergency Medicine Senior Registrars or Consultants with a track record of OSCE or simulation training.

Study online for the MRCEM Part C/OSCE exam

Over the last few years we have been building up a set of resources to help candidates with the MRCEM Part C/OSCE exam.

These take the form of specially recorded videos by the Bromley Emergency Courses faculty teaching and demonstrating best practice in approaching the different types of OSCE scenario encountered in the MRCEM Part C/OSCE examination. These videos can be viewed online via our website allowing you to study for your MRCEM exam at a time and place to suit you.

Core Communications Skills

We would strongly recommend that candidates focus on communication skills long before the examination, ideally at least a year before. To help with this, we have developed our package of Core Communication Skills.

These videos provides a clear explanation of what is understood as good clinical communication skills whilst providing a framework to develop these. It uses the Calgary-Cambridge guide, which is now widely used in UK medical schools. This package is particularly useful for those doctors who have not had prior training in communications skills as expected for UK medical practice.This package is available for £10 per month.

Video packages

For those who are closer to the Part C examination, we would recommend our online OSCE Training videos. There are 75 videos in total, divided into 5 video packages, and we believe that they cover nearly everything that is likely to come up in the MCREM Part C/OSCE exam!

Packages include:

  • Examination videos (14 videos).
  • Practical procedure videos (19 videos)
  • Advanced communications skills videos (15 videos)
  • Resuscitation videos (14 videos)
  • Model MRCEM OSCEs (13 videos)

The first four video packages (examination, procedures, communication and resuscitation) demonstrate the key skills you will need for the Part C examination and provide a commentary on exactly what the candidate should try to do.

The fifth package (model OSCEs) is designed to show typical MRCEM OSCEs as you might experience them. They start with a minute to study the candidate instructions, during which you should anticipate what you may have to do in the station, followed by a seven minute OSCE, in which you can watch how one of our team handles the OSCE. These are designed to give an example of good OSCE practice.

To sample our Part C/OSCE videos,  first register on this website then go to the free resources in your new account where you will find two example MRCEM Part C videos on communications skills and in particular 'breaking bad news'. The second of these describes the skills being demonstrated in the first so do watch both in sequence. If you are already registered simply go to your account to access the sample videos.

Alternatively you can click here to preview the videos on our YouTube site.

Core Communication Skills (£10 for 1 month access)

The package has been designed to be valuable to doctors in any specialty, and also to medical students.

We would particularly recommend this package to doctors undertaking MRCEM Part C who have not had in-depth communication skills training to use this package before progressing to the more specialised communication skills such as breaking bad news, dealing with an angry relative etc. These skills are covered in our MRCEM Part C communications video training package.

The package includes three stages consisting of videos and guidelines.
