Performing well in the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) requires sound medical knowledge and a systematic approach to clinical examination. It is the most daunting assessment for medical students - they are expected to take full and accurate medical histories, perform structured and comprehensive clinical examinations, and display competence and dexterity when performing procedures. They must also demonstrate interest and enthusiasm towards their patients, and show empathy when appropriate. This book will help you to focus on key point scoring areas, learn golden rules for each examination and avoid pitfalls, potential disasters and common mistakes. It provides essential details on structure and approach, without weighing you down - its handy size means you can use it at the bedside, on the ward, or whilst observing other students examining a patient. The best practice methods for approaching patients at each station will ensure that you'll have the confidence to impress examiners.
