OSCEs at a Glance 2nd Edition PDF downloadClinical examinations put fear into the hearts of many medical students.
During a written exam, the mistakes can be ‘private’ whereas for clini-
cal assessments there is always the danger of the hypothetical ‘hole’
being dug by the nervous student. Knowledge itself is only one requi-
site for becoming a competent doctor and, although important for clini-
cal examinations, it is also essential to demonstrate the adequate skills
and attitudes appropriate for a future doctor.

OSCEs at a Glance 2nd Edition PDF download here is still a tendency
for students to focus too much of their work in the library rather than utilising the plethora of clinical signs and medical histories available  on the wards. Facts alone will not permit success in clinical examinations and there is no substitute for perfecting your communication, history, examination and practical skills with a wide range of patients.

OSCEs at a Glance 2nd Edition PDF download are multiple OSCE books available but many substitute written’ questions for true OSCE clinical stations. The other potential  drawback is that many of them only cover one subject. This text  presents potential OSCE stations from all the clinical subjects taught  at medical school.

OSCEs at a Glance 2nd Edition PDF download have used a case by case approach with the idea that the student should try to picture him/herself as they enter the
station and are presented with the instruction and introduced to the
patient or task. Each station consists of an example instruction with appropriate history or examination hints relevant to the case. Examiner  questions are incorporated as discussion points. Where possible the  answers to these viva topics have been given but, as a revision aid,  this text needs to be used in combination with more comprehensive texts in each of the subjects. In addition to standard text books, useful nformation can be found on the websites of the National Institute for  Health and Clinical Excellence and also the Royal College websites where multiple guidelines are written for use in clinical practice.

After our own personal experience of sitting OSCE style assessments, preparing students for them, and also as examiners, we feel this  book uses a realistic approach to the OSCE exam and will help prepare students for the clinical exams throughout their medical school life.
