Frequently Asked Questions

The written exams are facilitated at the George Davis Centre, home of Leicester Medical School. The Clinical Summative OSCE exams are lead by Leicester Medical School’s Assessment Team in close conjunction with UHL colleagues and GP Practices all who teach, mentor and act as examiners in the OSCE assessment process.
Ideally both patient volunteers, simulated patients and mannequins are used within the examination stations according to the station requirements, the specialty involved and the appropriateness of the task examined. Students will experience all these aspects of learning within their block placements.
Students in Phase 1 receive continual assessment and feedback. In Phase 2 the clinical block placements incorporate written and, in most cases formative clinical assessments to re-create an exam environment, enable students to practise their skills in history taking, examination, diagnosis, not only to gauge their own knowledge but importantly to gain experience from constructive feedback.
We encourage and welcome patient volunteers. Please ask your Consultant regarding suitability at your consultation. The nature of the exams involves recruiting appropriate cases on specific days; our UHL Undergraduate Team are happy to, confirm dates and describe exactly what is involved. The welfare of our volunteers is priority and we greatly value their input in training our future doctors.
Examiners are drawn from Leicester Medical School, UHL & District General hospitals and GP practices. Examiners are aligned appropriately to examination stations and training is ensured to include briefings and video material. Assessment Floor leads are present on the day to lead the exams, answer questions and oversee the process according to GMC and Leicester Medical School requirements.
Leicester Medical School together with teaching partners offer a ‘Re-sit’ process for summative exams – both written and clinical. On successful completion students are able to take up their placement in the usual way for their next year. The revision and mentoring opportunities offered are key components to students’ success in this process.
