MRCEM OSCE

MRCEM OSCE

The new MRCEM OSCE will replace the FRCEM Intermediate SJP. The first sitting of the MRCEM OSCE will be in November 2021.

  • Objectively samples the clinical and communication skills of trainees and ensures that they are those of someone ready for higher training
  • Will replace the existing Intermediate SJP exam (NB. a prior pass in the Intermediate SJP will count for eligibility to undertake FRCEM Final examination and will be accepted for progression to ST4)
  • A pass in the SJP will have currency for seven years for entry to higher specialty training
  • Existing MRCEM OSCE passes achieved between August 2014 and before end of July 2018 will be valid for FRCEM eligibility and entry to higher training
  • From August 2021, all existing MRCEM OSCE passes achieved between August 2014 and July 2021 will be accepted for FRCEM eligibility and entry to higher training (this was approved by the GMC as part of the 2021 curriculum submission)
  • Prior unsuccessful attempts at MRCEM OSCE will be counted
  • Prior unsuccessful attempts at the SJP will not be counted

 

The MRCEM OSCE is designed to test both the theoretical knowledge and clinical skills of emergency medicine doctors. The OSCE stations test a wide variety of skills including history taking, physical examination, communication skills and the ability to perform practical procedures.

The MRCEM OSCE usually consists of a circuit of 18 stations, each of which is 7 minutes long. There are usually two ‘double stations’, which are 14 minutes longs and involve ALS, APLS or ATLS style scenarios.

Thank you and I am now looking forward to using your resource for the FRCEM Intermediate. " Dr. Jaizal Issac, Emergency Physician, India
"I am new to the site, so it's difficult to comment on the content, but the Customer Service is OUTSTANDING. I had two early queries and they were answered and sorted extremely quickly. I have already committed to the next exam with these guys because of this. I trust these guys to continue to improve the site, and to be available if I have any problems in the future.   " Dr. Thomas Maynard, Acute medicine/A&E SHO, Kent
" The MRCEM Primary is without a doubt one of the most difficult exams I have ever sat. This being said there is no reason why you can't pass it and first time! The extensive question bank offered by MRCEM Exam Prep is by far the best representation of the real thing and detailed explanations are given make revising easier and more directed. I can't recommend this website enough. Thank you MRCEM Exam Prep! " Dr. Victoria Jones, CT3 in Emergency Medicine, London, United Kingdom
