Whilst visiting the Staff Library in person is often a rewarding and pleasant thing to do, it can sometimes be a disappointing exercise if the book you need is unavailable. With that in mind it may interest junior doctors and final year medical students that the popular book The Finalist’s Guide to Passing the OSCE is also available online.
Despite the difficult financial climate, here in East Cheshire we are lucky that our eBook collection continues to grow and the ‘OSCE’ is just one title amongst many that can be easily accessed with nothing more than an internet PC and an NHS Athens account.
The Finalist’s Guide to Passing the OSCE
Author: Ian Mann
Description: Performing well in the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) requires sound medical knowledge and a systematic approach to clinical examination. It is the most daunting assessment for medical students.
IN ADDITION: Look out for over 50 new ebook titles focussing mainly on community health and care yet not forgetting additional topics such as: Management, General Medicine, Paediatrics, Personal Development, Women and Children, Nursing, and last but not least Cardiology.
