The Real Year 2 OSCE Book

Perhaps the most thorough literature available for Year 2 OSCEs, this book chronicles all major stations and the detailed approaches of how to tackle them. Be it how to take on a difficult conversation, how to reach a tricky diagnosis, or even simply, how to impress your examiner, this book is the perfect companion for your OSCE practice.

Layered within are examples of real OSCE scenarios, common pitfalls and how to avoid them. The chapters illustrate to great effect how to perfect your clinical and communication skills from passable to exemplary. This book is written as an unofficial guide for the KCL Year 2 OSCEs.

Designed to act as an aid and go-to for the KCL second year medical student in preparation for the upcoming OSCE exams, this book is filled with tips and hints from the authors' own experiences. The aim is to help you get those crucial extra points that are often not taught but could mean the difference between failing and passing a station.

Clinical Neurophysiology in Diagnostics

Clinical neurophysiology is a branch of medicine concerned with the measurement of the electrical activity of the central nervous system, peripheral nerves and muscles. The measurements of electrical activity are usually sensitive but, as far as the aetiology of the lesion is concerned, non-specific. The investigations are labour-intensive, and they are consultations by nature. Some of the investigations are uncomfortable for the patient. Neurophysiological investigations are therefore not suitable for screening purposes.
