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 2023, 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!

These stations are intended for practice only. They have been written by students and reviewed by the School of Medicine. Care has been taken to provide a good example of a station and mark scheme, however they may not be reflective of what the School of Medicine is looking to assess. Please refer to any cohort briefings and advice regarding OSCEs from the SoM.
