|Advice on how to approach the OSCEs, covering data interpretation, dispensing and 20 different MOCK stations, and additional 10 practical sessions, with immediate feedback.
There are 2 session options: 15 stations (+7 practicals) or 20 stations (+10 practicals)
For both sessions, you will start at 9am, and spend the morning doing the following:
Review OSCE Guidance: Cover any changes especially in light of COVID rules, but also run briefly through what the day is going to be like for you.
Miscellaneous Stations: There are 18 1 minute stations that test your knowledge and highlight areas that you might be struggling with, so we can focus our learning and revision on the day honing in on skills you need to improve.
Dispense Stations: there are 3 5 minute stations to ensure you can perform calculations and focimetry measurements – and time spent ensuring you have the appropriate skills and technique to be able to understand how to use the manual focimeter.
Data Interpretation: There are 40 1 minute stations will put you through the paces, and highlight common conditions that are in images or field plots; focusing on signs, symptoms, and referral.
