Exam Structure

The Part II OSCE/Clinical examination consists of an OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) and a clinical exam.

The OSCE has seven ten-minute stations and at least one rest station. The rest station is a short break and an opportunity to prepare for the next station.

At the clinical exam, you will see one long clinical case in either obstetrics or gynaecology. You have 25 minutes fully observed with two examiners to take a history and examine the patient/role player before discussing the case with the examiners.

  • The clinical component is simulated, this component will not be based in a hospital and will not have patient interaction.
  • This clinical exam has a duration of 25 minutes in which you will be examined by a pair of examiners on a simulated clinical case using model equipment in either obstetrics or gynaecology. You may also be expected to interact with a roleplayer.
