ORE Part 2: OSCE

A one day revision course designed to prepare participants for the ORE Part 2 OSCE examination. Participants will gain experience of skills-based OSCEs, communication OSCEs, practical and written OSCEs.  A session under examination conditions will be offered and feedback will be provided to the participants.

What will I learn?

The course is designed to enable ORE candidates to prepare for the OSCE component of the Part 2 examination by providing training on effective communication, imparting information and obtaining consent. It will also provide hands on practical sessions for the clinical skills stations. It aims to increase confidence and provide essential techniques to successfully pass ORE Part 2.

Why should I study this course at the Institute?

The course is tailored to accommodate the needs of each individual candidate. As OSCEs are limited by time, the course will enable candidates to develop an understanding and ability for effective communication, reasoning and using analytical skills to perform a given task. The course is conducted by staff who have passed the ORE, LDS and MJDF examinations and thereby have a thorough understanding of the requirements.

Availability: One full day.

Verifiable CPD: 6.5 hours.

  • Introduction to OSCEs: what to expect in the examination
  • Communication-based OSCEs: imparting and collecting information
  • Skill-based OSCEs: demonstration and practice sessions

Teaching and learning
