Medical students often feel they understand the theory behind the clinical aspect of medicine but seldom have enough chance to put what they learn into practice. In addition, clinical examinations pose a challenge to students who may be technically and theoretically excellent, but who have poor examination technique. It is quite common for students to lack understanding of how they will be marked, how much emphasis to place upon certain actions or how much detail is expected of them. OSCE Cases with Mark Schemes is intended to fill this gap. It provides OSCE mark schemes to reflect the real OSCE experience, by encouraging self assessment when practicing the clinical scenarios. The book includes chapters on communication skills, medical ethics, explanation stations, paediatrics and obstetrics and gynaecology subjects which are sometimes neglected elsewhere. All four authors have taken part in medical student teaching and OSCE examinations. They understand what will earn marks in the actual exam. All the OSCE scenarios are from stations previously examined in the UK's top medical schools. This book prepares the student for what the actual finals exam will be like. Contents include: Section One - Communication Stations, Presenting Complaints, Psychiatry History Taking, Pediatrics History Taking, Obstetrics History Taking, Gynaecology History Taking, Medical Ethics, Difficult Communication Scenarios, Pharmacology, Consenting, Explanation of Management and Results; and Section Two - Performance Stations, Examination Skills, Practical Skills, Data Interpretation, and Closing Remarks.
