Practice MRCS OSCE Pathology

Pathology is a virtual classroom led by examiners that will give you the opportunity to experience the pathology stations on MRCS Part B exam. The virtual classroom replicates the exam environment and allows you to practise answering questions similar to those you will encounter during the exam.

The structure of this virtual classroom allows each participant to practise their examination technique, assess their knowledge and confidence levels, encounter examination type questions and receive feedback from faculty who are current or retired MRCS OSCE examiners.

The opportunity to rehearse with a real examiner, ask questions and receive their immediate feedback is an invaluable experience.

This course is one of a series of online Practice MRCS OSCE courses that aim to prepare participants for the communication, pathology and anatomy stations on the MRCS OSCE exam. The anatomy course is currently available and the communication course is in development.
