Formative OSCEs

A highlight for many on the GUMS academic calendar are the Formative OSCEs – a series of mock exams, created by students, for students. Hundreds of GUMS members become involved each year either as volunteer examiners, simulated patients or OSCE candidates, to help prepare for this major piece of med school assessment.

In 2018, GUMS are holding Formative OSCEs for Year 3 and Year 4:

  • Year 3 – 2 October
  • Year 4 – 24 July & 11 September

Please note that the School of Medicine is conducting the Year 2 Formative OSCE for 2018, and is not being run by GUMS.
