Joondalup Health Campus- ACEM Fellowship OSCE Handbook
This handbook is prepared using the information provided on the ACEM website about the fellowship clinical exam and the experiences of the candidates, examiners, and confederates of the exam. The purpose of this manual is to bring all the information together in one place in a concise manner, so it is easy to follow and helps candidates develop a framework to prepare for the exam.
In the manual, we will discuss the domains of assessment as described by the college, identify various OSCE formats, discuss each OSCE type, and how to structure the OSCE around the domains. A comprehensive list of all the past OSCEs is presented, sorted by type.
Your everyday practice in the emergency department should not be different from how you approach an OSCE for the exam. The OSCE should reflect your day to day practice. This manual will help you to structure your study for the exam and consolidate your knowledge. By now you should be an expert in your field and the emphasis should not be on acquiring more knowledge, but on mastering your skills. It is not only important to be a medical expert in emergency medicine but also to be able to show that to the examiners.
Be a consultant, engage more with difficult patients, and complex decision-making processes at work. Teach junior doctors on the floor and get feedback from Colleagues. Consider every presentation and every patient you see in the Emergency Department as an OSCE. There is no alternative to learning on the job in the medical profession.
