This book is designed for candidates sitting both the MRCS clinical section as well as undergraduate clinical examinations in surgery, with the objectives of explaining how the examinations work, and of smoothing the process of passing. The 133 cases in the book are carefully framed to allow interpretation for both short cases and OSCEs. In each case an example of the opening instruction is given, followed by a discussion of the steps required to complete the examination and to pass. Features The MRCS/AFRCS has replaced the old surgical examinations; there are no revision books in this style designed to help the candidate revising for the clinical section. This book addresses the need for a new book for the difficult clinical part of the MRCS exam. The book is laid out in identical sections to the new examination, separated into "bays" of cases candidates can expect to be examined on. The approach simulates the exam itself - it walks the candidate through the exam. Frequency of cases in an examination highlighted throughout. Includes top tips emphasising examiner's specific areas of questioning. Advanced level questions included.

Currently, clinical training for undergraduates is becoming more difficult. To be a good doctor with adequate training, one must be exposed to many different patients with a variety of pathologies and diseases. At present, we are unable to achieve this, mainly due to the increase in the medical student cohort each year and fewer in-patients. In short, the student-to-patient ratio is worsening, thus lessening students' contact with patients and learning experience. Fortunately, with the objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) format, undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and examination have become more efficient. This book will be very useful for students preparing for surgical OSCEs by covering the different clinical scenarios that a certain condition might present, and allowing self-testing of the questions as well as learning from the provided answers.

This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. It is intended to help you learn how best to approach a clinical problem from a surgical perspective. The text provides an insight into how a surgeon might manage a particular problem and consequently how to prepare for an OSCE that might entirely (or in part) consist of 'surgical' OSCE stations. Although some of the stations in the book could easily be found in a "medicine" OSCE they are presented here from the perspective of both a student seeking to demonstrate well-developed surgical skills within an OSCE setting and a specialist surgical examiner. Presents a series of clinical problems with an emphasis on the surgical approach to the management. Appropriate for all students needing to demonstrate their clinical expertise in surgical cases. A companion book to the highly-commended "Core Clinical Skills for OSCEs in Medicine".
