Aims and objectives
The course aims to provide participants with:
- the opportunity to practice and prepare for the ORE Part 2 OSCE under examination conditions
- the experience of a wide variety of OSCEs including practical skills, written and communication OSCEs.
At the end of the course, participants should have learned to communicate more effectively and should have enhanced their practical skills while efficiently managing their exam time. The course should provide confidence with collecting and imparting information in a concise and clear manner while prioritising patient welfare, which is the most essential assessment of the ORE/LDS examinations.
All teachers on the Institute's courses are experienced professionals. All participants are asked to submit written feedback via a questionnaire at the end of the course, which is used to monitor the course's quality of teaching and value for money.
Teaching and assessment
The course is delivered through lecture, discussion and exam practice.
Feedback will be provided at the end of the clinical skills practice sessions and the mock examination. Areas of importance will be highlighted and advice given to overcome any identified areas of weakness.
Hand outs will be provided. Candidates are encouraged to discuss any concerns they have about the OSCE examination and guidance will be provided on an individual basis, time permitting.
