ISA Primary FRCA OSCE Course

Monday 12th May 2014. 08:30 – 17:00

The OSCE is an area of the exam that candidates can find difficult to prepare for. It requires extra revision time and this course is designed for those who have prepared for the exam and would like specific teaching sessions, exposure to simulation and experience of a full OSCE examination.

Examined by senior trainees with recent experience of the OSCE, you gain individual feedback as well as recent ‘hot topics’ and common pitfalls to help tailor your revision and preparation prior to the exam.

This course is aimed at candidates about to sit the forthcoming OSCE exam. Please note that places are limited; therefore we request that you only attend this course if you are fully prepared.

Cost - £95

·      Introductory lecture from a current College examiner with insight on the examination; how to prepare, expectations, format and mark scheme.
