2-Day In-Person FRCEM OSCE Course

£745

This interactive course is designed to mimic the real OSCE exam and give candidates the opportunity to apply their clinical knowledge and skills in exam-like scenarios. The objective is to give you the practice that you will need to prepare for the real exam so that you can feel confident in your skills and your ability to pass the exam.

The course runs over two days and consists of around 40 different OSCE stations, which have been written to follow the updated 2021 RCEM curriculum. You will participate in all stations, sometimes taking the lead, and other times observing and learning from others who take the lead. In each station where you take the lead you will have 1 minute to read the scenario and then 8 minutes to complete the station.

You will then have an opportunity to discuss how you did with our faculty and actors, so you can learn about your strengths and weakness in each station. This format is the closest to the real exam conditions.

2-Day Online FRCEM OSCE Course

£645

On our interactive online FRCEM Final OSCE course you will practice completing OSCE stations in real-time and under exam-like conditions. You will be given 1 minute to read a scenario and then you will have 8 minutes to complete the station. You will also be given a chance to discuss your performance with our faculty and actors to see how well you did in each station.

As you will be doing this online, the focus will be more on those types of stations that you can practice online, such as communication, teaching and management skills, but will still follow the format of the actual exam.

The course will consist of around 35 different OSCE stations drawn from SLO1 (Complex Stable Patient), SLO2 (Answer Questions), SLO7 (Complex or Challenging Situations), SLO9 (Teaching), SLO12 (Manage and lead), and others.

The course will be held over Zoom and is a perfect option for those unable to travel but would like to practice completing OSCE stations similar to the exam.
