OSCE examinations are used worldwide as a critical part of medical student assessment, yet there is often little preparation for them provided by medical schools. The Unofficial Guide to Passing OSCEs is intended to fill this gap. It includes over 100 scenarios, covering medical history taking, clinical examination, practical skills, communication skills, plus specialties, meaning that everything is covered in one place. To bring the cases to life, over 300 full color clinical photos are included, including patients with features of important diseases. It also includes clear outlines of how to relay the assessment of a patient to an examiner or to other doctors on a ward round, and model answers to common questions put to students/junior doctors in OSCEs. This book has relevance beyond examinations, for post graduate further education and as a day-to-day reference for professionals.

Author Information

Zeshan Qureshi is a Paediatrician based at Great Ormond Street and the Institute of Child Health. He graduated with distinction from the university of Southampton, and has published and presented research work extensively and internationally in the fields of pharmacology and medical education. Whilst working in Edinburgh he was part of the leadership team developing a near peer teaching programme, where by junior doctors, throughout south east scotland, were both trained to teach, and delivered teaching across every hospital in the area. This book is an extension of this philosophy: that junior doctors and fresh graduates know how to express complex ideas in order for it to be easily understood from a students perspective. That junior doctors can teach, and write in a complimentary way to senior doctors: one that is friendly and fun, easy to read and relevant to both exams, and the day to day to life of junior doctors.

Review quote

"The chapters are clearly written, in simple language that should appeal to students and reflect the fact that the authors themselves have recently been OSCE candidates. They are all part of what I believe is a genuine re-invigoration of the art of teaching amongst junior medical staff." -- Simon Maxwell, Professor of Student Learning "This book is amazing and I don't think I would have passed my exams without it" -- Cath Roels, Medical Student

Customer reviews

This is a really great book for all those students currently studying medicine. It's well-structured and has a stepwise approach to history-taking and clinical examinations in various scenarios with clear pictures of clinical signs in real patients. It's concise yet has everything, including a number of speciality subjects such as paediatrics, orthopaedics, psychiatry and others. It has a knack of tackling complex topics in not only a clear and understandable manner, but also an attractive one. Furthermore it has extremely useful information about the skills required to interpret clinical findings on ECG, X-ray, fundoscopy etc, which you will find indispensable once you start clinical years! All complimented with tit-bits of experience, tips and case-studies from a number of professionals and other medical more
