Tips for Life Support OSCEs in the MCEM & FCEM

I give my trainees sitting the MCEM Part C (OSCE) exam the following tips for the life support OSCE stations:

  1. Keep every member of the team busy.
  2. Treat the manikin like a real person.
  3. Look at the monitor or examine the patient yourself.
  4. 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.)
