What It’s Like Being a Med School Examiner & My Tips for OSCE 🎓

It’s the time of the year that all students dread, their oral clinical examinations, which in the medical field, consist of being examined on the interaction between the delegate and a simulated patient. The types of stations vary from being assessed on how to examine a patient, to taking a history and perhaps even being interviewed by the examiner 1 on 1 to assess knowledge.

I was very fortunate to be behind the scenes examining the examiners, ensuring that there was consistency in marking throughout, and also examining the students.

Here are my top 5 tips for getting through your OSCE’s:

1 - Turn up to your exam. It does happen and unfortunately if you’re not there we can’t mark your hard work from the year.

2 - Look the part. You’re about to join a world where people will trust you with their lives. Messy hair, scruffy clothes and looking like you’ve just got up from bed doesn’t make a good impression.

3 - Listen to the patient. We all get nervous, and we as examiners know you are too, however, don’t miss important information that the patient is telling you because you are too caught up in your own ‘system of questions’.

4 - Don’t worry if you pause. Taking a breath, recalibrating is totally ok. Just make sure it’s not the whole 5-10 minutes of the station. Take a moment to gather your thoughts and hold you head high and go strong.

5 - Enjoy it! These moments will forever stay with you and you’ll reflect back on how far you’ve come. At the end of the day it’s a simulated scenario, so don’t get yourself too stressed if it hasn’t worked out the way you wanted. There’s always another station and another opportunity.

I have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the calibre of students coming through and the experience made me confident to know that I can fully trust our health professionals of tomorrow. Wishing you all the best of luck going through your exams.

How to Listen To Your Heart Using A Stethoscope ❤️🏥 | Doctor Explains

There may be hundreds of songs about it, but the heart has its own song - lub-dub, lub-dub, lub-dub. Arguably the most important organ in the body, it has two distinctive sounds as a result of the valves closing inside the heart.

In this episode of Dr Nora, I show you the anatomy of the valves, how they contract to make the beautiful noises, where best to listen to them using your stethoscope, what the different areas sound like and a live demonstration on a real life beating heart at rest.
