The Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) is said to be the most common type of clinical examination in medical schools worldwide. In this expanded edition, Blundell (consultant geriatrician, Nottingham U. Hospitals NHS Trust, UK) and Harrison (general practitioner, Windsor, UK) introduce realistic case scenarios organized by "stations" in general medicine, surgery, and specialties. Following coverage of exam preparation, and practical and communication skills, stations on disorders by body system include case information, discussion points, hints and tips, color illustrations, and some Britishisms (e.g., nappy rash). Includes a companion website featuring station checklists.
