OSCE-Aid is a free and widely-used revision platform aimed at guiding clinical medical students through their OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination). It contains a vast collection of revision materials for medical students including OSCE station guides, common case presentations, communication skill notes and podcasts. It has been written by doctors for their future colleagues. OSCE-Aid.co.uk now receives over 9,000 visits per month and has more than 1,300 registered users.

Since 2013 we have also been running revision courses and have tutored circa 400 students thus far. Our peer-led one-day courses provide lectures and workshops focused on the important aspects of clinical examinations and communication skills. Our courses receive consistently excellent feedback from our students.

SJT Webinar

Posted on by

SJT: Secret for Success Webinar is designed to allow participants to become familiar with the SJT scoring system, common themes on which the exam is based, and principles which can be used to develop effective strategies when confronted with challenging scenario-based questions. The speaker, Dr Ahmad Moinie BMCh (Oxon), MA (Cantab), was in the first cohort of finalists to be ranked in the FPAS applications using the Situational Judgement Test, achieving a score of 47.5. Since then, he has taught the SJT: Secret for Success training course for three years running. On all occasions, he saw a fantastic uptake and received great feedback confirming its benefit to all attendees – 100% of last year’s attendees who left feedback said they would recommend the webinar to a friend or colleague.

The programme is being delivered as an online webinar in order to make it accessible to students around the UK. It is competitively priced at £19.99 per ticket in order to suit a student budget, making it more cost-effective than class-based courses taking place elsewhere. It will be running twice on 20th November 2016 at 12:00-14:00 and 2nd January 2017 at 12:00-14:00.
