OSCE: Teaching Medical students how to examine patients
Dr Elize Richards, Head of Clinical Skills and Simulation, University of Oxford

The OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) is a practical exam taken by medical students in which they practice clinical procedures on mock patients. In this video, a series of interviews show the value of a teaching day just two weeks before this practical exam. 4th year medical students talk of the value of being able to practice and ask questions, whilst the senior medical students and junior doctors who have themselves only recently completed the exam, talk of how it also benefits them in terms of validation of their medical knowledge as well as gaining experience of teaching. Dr Elize Richards, Head of Clinical Skills and Simulation at the University of Oxford Medical School reiterates the importance of such peer to peer teaching and learning.
