This title is directed primarily towards health care professionals outside of the United States. It is intended to help you learn how best to approach a clinical problem from a surgical perspective. The text provides an insight into how a surgeon might manage a particular problem and consequently how to prepare for an OSCE that might entirely (or in part) consist of ‘surgical’ OSCE stations. Although some of the stations in the book could easily be found in a “medicine” OSCE they are presented here from the perspective of both a student seeking to demonstrate well-developed surgical skills within an OSCE setting and a specialist surgical examiner.

Key Features

  • Presents a series of clinical problems with an emphasis on the surgical approach to the management.
  • Appropriate for all students needing to demonstrate their clinical expertise in surgical cases.
  • A companion book to the highly-commended “Core Clinical Skills for OSCEs in Medicine”.
