Event description


Dear Final Years

So your final OSCEs are fast approaching, and we are very excited to run our 2 day weekend course “The Complete Guide to Final Year OSCEs: Everything You Need to Know to Pass” – now in its second year after selling out last year!

Taught By:

Dr. Sujan Sivasubramaniyam

Junior Clinical Fellow in Intensive Care; Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust

GKT Graduate with Multiple Distinction 2015; Winner of School of Medicine Silver Medal, Todd Prize and Medal in Clinical Practice, Stewart Rouquette Award.

16/16 Stations in 3rd and Final Year OSCEs

Dr. Jimmy Lam

GP ST1 Trainee, North Central London Deanery

GKT Graduate with Distinctions in Medical Sciences, Clinical Sciences, Clinical Practice and SSC

Nominated for University of London Gold Medal Viva

Cheyne Edmunds Prize for 2nd best performance in Phase 5 OSCE

We will cover virtually every single potential OSCE station! We have taken on board last year’s feedback (see below) and have worked closely with the GKT Class of 2017 graduates to make sure that this year’s course content is fully up-to-date based on stations from the summer 2017 OSCEs. Having taught many of you since 3rd year, we have stayed in touch with the updated curriculum and are experienced in how to tailor our teaching methods to precisely meet your needs.

Day 1:

  • Histories:
  • Medical: Chest pain, SOB, LOC, seizure, funny turn, headache, palpitations, cough, haemoptysis, haematemesis
  • Surgical: acute abdomen, PR bleed, LUTS
  • Psychiatry: OD, Alcohol dependence, OCD, psychosis, eating disorder
  • Examination:
  • In depth: Cardio, resp, abdo, back pain, shoulder, hip, neck lump
  • Summary of others
  • Imaging and Data Interpretation
  • CXR, AXR, CT [with multiple scenarios]
  • Interpreting blood tests

Day 2:

  • Chronic disease management: 8 common conditions
  • Discharge counselling: 8 common conditions
  • Explaining procedures: 9 common procedures
  • Breaking bad news: 9 common scenarios
  • Inter-professional communication: 4 common scenarios
  • Cross-cultural communication: 7 common scenarios
  • OSCE Anxiety Clinic: Interactive Q&A [Guranteed to be less cryptic than Tushar Vince]

Feedback from last year’s course:

97% said they would recommend the workshop and handbook to a colleague

97% said the handbook provided was useful, comprehensive and easy to read

93% said that they feel more confident about passing their OSCEs after the workshop

Selected comments: ‘Tailored to King’s finals’, ‘high yield’, ‘lecturers were very knowledgeable’, ‘great handouts’, ‘went through examples of past stations’

This course will cover all the core content as well as provide hints and tips we wish someone had told us in final year. I’m sure all of you know how to take a history or perform examinations; the focus of this event is to teach you how to make it slick; confident and develop presentation, investigation and management skills in order to make you stand out from the crowd.

Although it will be largely lecture-based, there will be opportunities to be observed taking histories, examining and practising your communication skills – we want to make the course as interactive as possible.

And if that’s not enough to convince you, the very popular and well-received handbook “The Complete Guide to Final Year OSCEs” will be included in the course price [£15 to purchase separately]. Now in its 2nd edition, the handbook has also been revised to include a whole new chapter on prescribing, a more concise and high-yield clinical examinations chapter, plus additional scenarios on imaging and explaining procedures that came up in the summer 2017 OSCEs.
