It is not our intention to teach you 270 stations, because we don’t believe this is a suitable way to train for the PLAB 2 exam, nor could that be done in 2 months. Neither do we intend to teach you a script for all the PLAB 2 scenarios. The GMC are adamant that they do not want to see this from candidates.
Over the two days we will teach you the skills, and the structure that the GMC want to see when candidates approach the different disciplines in the OSCE scenarios. This will mostly be done in practical hands-on sections carried out by you, followed by feedback, rather than you sitting in front of lectures. For example, we could teach you how to pass an elbow, knee, or hip exam OSCE, but instead we will teach you how to complete any Orthopaedic examination OSCE, by following a structure and format that is practiced throughout UK medicine, and is what the GMC want to see carried out by PLAB 2 candidates.
