The CTF Objective Structured Clinical Examination Course is a comprehensive one and a half day training event that enables you to approach the OSCE in the most efficient way. This is done by incorporating Examiner feedback and a range of OSCE stations, providing tips across the course program. The approach to Leadership and Management stations sets an excellent foundation for Consultant interviews as management decisions that form a crucial part of your future clinical practice. The Leadership and Management Stations are also part of the registrar curriculum.

Stations Discussion and Practice
The most important tip for passing the OSCE’s is 'PRACTICE'. Although the CTF OSCE/M-OSCE Course covers a lot of material and provides an excellent foundation, unless you rehearse the various stations on your own, it can be difficult to pass the OSCE/M-OSCE. Psych Interview is an online training centre that has been developed for this exact purpose; to allow you to prepare and rehearse in your own time. With over 50 stations performed by a Consultant Psychiatrist, Psych Interview is the perfect exam prep tool and comes highly recommended by previous and current users.
