In first year you have 10 stations at the end of the year (spread over 2 days).

In second year you have 4 stations after semester 1 and 6 after semester 2.

In third year you have 16 stations at the end of the year.

The OSCE stations are very different, you’ll be assessed on different practical tasks. In first and second year you get Anatomy stations where you’re asked to point out various structures, you’ll take histories from patients, do examinations, you’ll get some based on the Physiology & Pharmacology practicals we do.

Third year onwards the OSCEs are much more clinical and more about communications skills, explaining medications and diagnoses, taking histories and examining for certain conditions.
