The OSCE is unlike any other exam you might have taken and so even if you sail through Stages 1 and 2 of pre-registration, many people become stuck with this final hurdle. Optuitions can prepare you to tackle the OSCEs with confidence and we provide a variety of different courses meet your needs. Please contact us for more specific pricing on the various course options.
Blended Learning Taught OSCE Course – starting from £199.00 per person
Included in this course:
- One week of access to our online video tutorials guiding you on how to actually tackle OSCE stations (click here to find out more)
- 20 mock OSCE stations undertaken under exam conditions at our office on a mutually agreed day in-person on a 1-to-1 basis.
The video tutorials will help you to better understand how OSCEs work, how to develop effective communication, history and symptoms, data interpretation strategies as well as optimal demonstration of clinical skills. The in-person day includes the Volk Manikin!
Under the guidance of an experienced Assessor and mock OSCE Examiner, you will learn how to demonstrate best practice, practice lots of stations and optimise your chances of successfully passing the OSCEs! You can also attend this course option on a 1-to-2 basis if you wish to attend with a friend / colleague (you will need to arrange the other person to attend with you). In this case you will do 13 stations per person and observe the other person do their stations too, being exposed to a total of 20 different stations!
Group Mock OSCE Courses – starting from £150.00 per person
Held in groups of up to 3 people, you will undertake up to 11 OSCE stations per person under exam conditions receiving detailed individual feedback. The course includes a ring of 6 OSCE stations followed by individual stations. You will get to observe colleagues undertaking stations (and vice versa) to gain a valuable insight into how other people approach OSCEs and learn from this too!
