Non-Clinical OSCE

Hold up! Before you read on, please read this...

I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. Not everything that is old is bad. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have mellowed and matured.

But given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views might very well have changed in the 13 years since I wrote this post. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find pretty embarrassing today.
  • This post might use language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate or offensive.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken; embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

Today was my third of four exams: the Non-Clinical OSCE.

This exam contains two parts: An anatomy spot test, which consists of sixty thirty-second questions relating to pinned structures in cadavers, and six five-minute structured questions on anything and everything else. The five-minuters weren’t so bad, with quite a few of them being straightforward enough – and there was no equivalent to the bus timetable question! But the anatomy spotter was horrendous – despite doing a huge amount of anatomy revision, I still didn’t feel confident on almost any of the questions. Having said that, I usually feel that way, though it was, perhaps, a little worse today. It’s difficult to judge.

Tomorrow I have the day off; my next exam is Friday afternoon, for the MCQ/TF/EMI paper.
