Course details

This course has been organised with help from Edinburgh Medic Student Council and is ideal for finalist studying in Scotland.
OSCE Masterclass is specifically for medical and surgical finalists. Our aim is to give you the precise practical and clinical knowledge that will push you beyond a pass and towards a distinction.

We review each medical and surgical OSCE station sequentially, discussing the 3 most likely diagnoses followed by the 3 trickiest cases that could present. We explore the differentiating findings from each examination so that you understand how to rapidly reach a diagnosis. We conclude each case with the ‘PACES’ facts that the examiner wants to hear when you present back your findings.

For example, now that you have seen the Rutherford-Morrison scar we will teach you how to spot the indicators of each immunosuppressive drug and how to present a renal transplant case to an examiner.

Built on the success and positive feedback from last years finalists, we have added a further tutorial entitled ‘Emergency management’ now making the 2017/18 OSCE Masterclass course the most comprehensive we have ever run.

  • Perfectly structured approach.

    Well organised and well worth the money. I have to say much better than OSCE-Aid.

    The course focuses on how to get a distinction rather than just passing.

    Finalist at Manchester
  • Really good.

    Not just a regurgitation of McCloud's or Essential Examination with some great tips for how to look slick in the OSCE.

    Finalist at Edinburgh
  • Excellent course.

    Much better than other courses I have attended. Most of us have the knowledge, and need more advice on how to express this in a structural manner which was provided in this course.

    Simple to ways to arrive at differentials early in examination. Excellent!
