Consult OSCEs



Consult OSCEs are talk stations. You will be asked to explain a diagnosis, a prognosis, a lab or medical imaging tests result, a drug interaction or side effects, a procedure, an alternative, or any patient concerns. Ethical stations are mostly consult stations like breaking bad news, obtaining consents,.. etc. There may be some history taking too and some times it will be a combined focused history taking and a consult station.

Consult OSCEs require good communication skills as well as good English language skills. These skills usually weigh up to 60-70% of that station final mark. It is obvious how important to develop your language and communication skills.


You need to prepare in advance what information you need to gather from the patient. What is the real concern? Then arrange what you want to inform the patient in an understandable language. No medical jargon.

Information to give patients depends first on your local guideline and available resources, not on research only.
