MRCEM OSCE course is helpful for those planning to attempt the exam within next few months. Once you have cleared the MRCEM Primary and Intermediate, there’s a final obstacle you need clear before getting certified as MRCEM [Membership of the Royal College of Emergency Medicine]. To know more about MRCEM OSCE, go through the following blog posts.
The OSCE exam consists of 18 stations of 7 minutes each. Before each station, you have 1 minute to read the station scenario / score distribution [whether it has more marks for history or examination or skill demonstration etc], then enter the station, perform and get out before going through the next station.
The time between stations is only 1minute. In that minute, you need to come out of the previous room and read the scenario for the next station/room. It’s really important that you make a note of what carries more marks. If you are getting carried away, some examiners do prompt asking you to look at the question / scenario one more time [For example, if you are spending / wasting time with history taking where you are supposed to do some procedure].
The list is given by RCEM. They have the right to follow or change the stations as per local availability of actors or equipment at the Examination venue.

MRCEM OSCE Course model
The MRCEM OSCE course has a few online classes that go though the exam structure, resources that help and some tips to be successful. You have the option of choosing Physical attendance or Virtual stations from your place. (Fee varies).
This is common for both formats of the course. You will have 2 classes to explain what is tested in the OSCE station and to guide you on how to score well.
We will be sharing tips on what to do for maximum score in each kind of OSCE station.
We will demonstrate all stations that are going to be testes on MOCK days.
Timing 2pm to 5pm India standard time
We have an OFFLINE MRCEM OSCE course at Hyderabad, India. This is the best way to test yourself with physical testing which is exactly how it is in the final exam. Once the circuit starts, it goes on as per schedule and you will see how you fare during such stressful time.
The ONLINE MRCEM OSCE course can be attended from anywhere with a good internet connection and least amount of disturbance. You will be online with an examiner for each station.
Either way, you will go through 9 stations at a time. A bad internet connection can spoil your session. If the connection issues are from our side, we will organize another session for you. If it is from your side, no refunds will be issued and no extra sessions will be planned for you. Attend from a laptop or desktop.
But do note, some stations which involve equipment in skill based OSCE stations [like POP application or Thomas splint application etc.] cannot be simulated in ONLINE mode.
You must clear at least 1 resuscitation OSCE to pass, no matter how good you perform in other OSCE stations.Though resuscitation OSCE involves team and mannequins, we will still organize it locally while you perform online as it is very important.
