What is rOSCE?

A two day face to face OSCE preparation program (two full days of intense OSCE content) including:

  • Tips for maximising your exam metacognition (mental scaffolds, understanding hard vs soft skills, looking for the drops).
  • Template workshops to help you provide structure on the run.
  • Decoding the curriculum framework. Don’t know your column 4 from your column 3? Don’t worry. We do.
  • Focused sessions on breaking down the ACEM curriculum domains.
  • 3 Minute Thrives, Learning circles and medical expertise review.
  • Real FACEMs. Real time. Real exam conditions.
