Exam format

Part B consists of an objective structured clinical exam (OSCE). The OSCE consists of 18 examined stations each of 9 minutes’ duration.

These stations will examine the following broad content areas:

  • applied knowledge: consisting of anatomy, surgical pathology, applied surgical science and critical care
  • applied skills: consisting of communication skills in giving and receiving information, history taking and clinical & procedural skills

Syllabus

In addition to the four broad content areas examined in the OSCE (anatomy, surgical pathology, applied surgical science, critical care), four domains have been identified which encompass the knowledge, skills, competencies and professional characteristics of the competent surgeon. These domains map to the GMC’s Good Medical Practice and are assessed in the OSCE:

The duties of a doctor registered with the GMC

Patients must be able to trust doctors with their lives and health. To justify that trust
you must show respect for human life and make sure your practice meets the standards
expected of you in four domains.

Knowledge, skills and performance

Make the care of your patient your first concern.
Provide a good standard of practice and care.
Keep your professional knowledge and skills up to date.
Recognise and work within the limits of your competence.

Safety and quality

Take prompt action if you think that patient safety, dignity or comfort is being
compromised.
Protect and promote the health of patients and the public.
Communication, partnership and teamwork
Treat patients as individuals and respect their dignity.
Treat patients politely and considerately.
Respect patients’ right to confidentiality.
Work in partnership with patients.
Listen to, and respond to, their concerns and preferences.
Give patients the information they want or need in a way they can understand.
Respect patients’ right to reach decisions with you about their treatment
and care.
Support patients in caring for themselves to improve and maintain their health.
Work with colleagues in the ways that best serve patients’ interests.

Maintaining trust

Be honest and open and act with integrity.
Never discriminate unfairly against patients or colleagues.
Never abuse your patients’ trust in you or the public’s trust in the profession.
You are personally accountable for your professional practice and must always be
prepared to justify your decisions and actions.
