OSCE examinations are used worldwide as a critical part of medical student assessment, yet there is often little preparation for them provided by medical schools. The Unofficial Guide to Passing OSCEs is intended to fill this gap. It includes over 100 scenarios, covering medical history taking, clinical examination, practical skills, communication skills, plus specialties, meaning that everything is covered in one place. To bring the cases to life, over 300 full color clinical photos are included, including patients with features of important diseases. It also includes clear outlines of how to relay the assessment of a patient to an examiner or to other doctors on a ward round, and model answers to common questions put to students/junior doctors in OSCEs. This book has relevance beyond examinations, for post graduate further education and as a day-to-day reference for professionals.
Follows on from the huge success of The Unofficial Guide to Passing OSCEs. It contains step-by-step illustrated guides to over 50 core practical skills, with over 200 high quality images of the actual procedures being performed. Accompanying mark schemes, and typical exam questions are included to simulate real life assessment.
This book teaches systematic X Ray analysis, starting with X Rays and multiple choice questions, forcing students to think as they would in real life clinical scenarios. Large high quality images are used, both annotated and non annotated versions to reinforce learning. Based on the Royal College of Radiologist core undergraduate curriculum.
