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 2020 GUMS will be running the formative OSCES for years 2, 3 and 4. Currently, with COVID times, we are yet to lock in the final dates for the formative OSCES but are working alongside the medical school to determine what’s to come. As soon as details are finalised, we will be posting all our available information!
