COURSE DESIGN

The Fourth Mersey DOHNS OSCE Revision Course. This is a revision course for those aspiring to sit the DOHNS OSCE. We have limited numbers to 8 to 10 attendees, enabling us to address revision needs more closely and to provide a better experience. 

The course is centred around a full-length mock OSCE using professional medical actors with up to eight manned/interactive stations per attendee. You will receive private written and verbal feedback from the examiners and actors. In the afternoon, exam answers are discussed and we are guided by needs of the attendees on the day. We can focus on exam technique or particular key topics. The course usually runs four weeks before a sitting of the DOHNS OSCE to help candidates in the later stages of revision to benchmark themselves. 

A continental breakfast, sandwich/finger food lunch, coffee and refreshments are included.

Feedback from October 2016 – "Very friendly and extremely knowledgeable" – "Good candidate to tutor ratio; very informative... exam technique tips" – 'Extensive amount of questions"
Overall rating by candidates = 6.3 / 7

Feedback from January 2017 - "Excellent sim pts + manned stations" - "Overall very good" - "Excellent course" - "This is ideal 1 month before the exam"
Overall rating by candidates = 6.4 / 7

Feedback from September 2017 - "Excellent faculty to candidate ratio" - "Simulated the fatiguability" - "Mock OSCE excellent; good food; good directions"
Overall rating by candidates = 6.5 / 7

Refund & Cancellation Policy: Until 1200 on 8 December 2017, attendees may cancel for a refund, less a 20% administration cost. Until 1200 on 8 December 2017, attendees may defer only once to the April 2018 course without penalty. 

After 1200 on 8 December 2017, no refunds or deferrals are available unless the attendee can arrange for a replacement paying the same fee. These rules allow us to provide viable courses with high actor-attendee ratios at a reasonable cost. 

If we are forced to cancel the course either because of low uptake or because of circumstances beyond our control, we will contact attendees at the earliest possible time (usually at least four weeks before the course). If we are forced to cancel a course, attendees will be given a full refund but we are not liable for other costs they may have incurred.
