Product Category: Textbooks

Description

This Student’s guide has been published after the identification of the need to provide students (mainly undergraduate, but also post­graduate) with a vehicle for maximizing their performance in what is a relatively new format of clinical examinations. (The Objective Structured Clinical Examination - OSCE).

This need is especially relevant as the OSCE (or similar format for a clinical examination) is being increasingly used internationally.

The initial chapter outlines the relevant historical perspectives as well as theoretical principles and the general approach to the exam­ination. The subsequent chapters then analyse in detail the require­ments of the history, examination, technical and communication stations under the following headings:

  1. Description
  2. Examiner requirements
  3. Candidate preparation
  4. Examination technique
  5. Common errors
