I give my trainees sitting the MCEM Part C (OSCE) exam the following tips for the life support OSCE stations:
- Keep every member of the team busy.
- Treat the manikin like a real person.
- Look at the monitor or examine the patient yourself.
- Do to the manikin what you say you would do.
Download this PDF for an illustration of each of these 4 points.
(This advice is equally applicable for the FCEM OSCE stations.)
