*Please note that due to time constraints it may not be possible for all delegates to have a turn on every station. Examiners will ensure that delegates have an equal amount of practice and students will also benefit from observing others and hearing feedback. 


Students will be assessed on each station and will receive feedback and tips from examiners. All examiners for specialty OSCEs are MRCS, MRCGP, MRCP, MRCPCH, MRCOG, MRCOpth or MRCPsych qualified to ensure the highest level of examining at each station.
