This is the only guide you need to pass the MRCS Part B OSCE examination. This unique two-volume set includes comprehensive revision notes on all the areas covered in the exam; numerous practice scenarios with model answers in the format they would be encountered in the exam; and essential exam technique tips. Written by a team of editors and authors with extensive experience of the exam and all the recent changes, it broaches topics that can often trip up the candidate, including communication and history-taking skills. Revision is aided by over 130 images and illustrations, as well as boxes highlighting clinical tips and exam hints.
Volume 2 addresses the stations that exam the four specialty areas: Trunk and Torso; Limbs and Spine; Head and Neck, and Neuroscience. It covers the anatomy, physiology and pathology in each of these four speciality areas along with detailed clinical exam scenarios and a bank of likely clinical questions and model answers.
