. RCSI IC3 Osce tutorial report .


Date :           18th & 25th May, 1st June 2013
Venue :         Malaysian Hall, Dublin, Ireland

  In the name of Allah, the most beneficent the most merciful. Alhamdulillah, on the 18th, 25th of May and 1st of June, Islamic Medical Association of Malaysia (IMAM) in collaboration with IKRAM Ireland and Education Malaysia (EM) has successfully organized the very first Obstructive Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) tutorial designed for third year students of Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI).

The objectives of the OSCE tutorial were as follows;
1)      To gain confidence in performing a history taking skills.
2)      To be able to perform good physical examination skills with appropriate techniques.
3)      To equip medical students with common exam cases and questions in OSCE.
4)      To strengthen networking between medical students and doctors.

The collaborative effort involving students, seniors (newly graduated doctors) and current working doctors received positive feedbacks through out the three sessions held in Malaysian Hall, Dublin.

In conclusion, we would like to thank to all sponsors; EM, Majlis Amanah Rakyat Malaysia (MARA), personal donation and students for their financial supports. Also to doctors and seniors for their time and wisdom and lastly to everyone who made this tutorial a reality. We hope this pioneer work will be carried on next year.

We are also delighted to have few colleagues from University College Dublin (UCD) joining us for the first time. We started off the tutorial with an overview lecture on orthopaedics (Hip & Knee examination) by Dr Shahril then students were divided into groups for simulated session on each system. A token of appreciation for all doctors were distributed at the end of the last period. A short presentation delivered by 4th med seniors was scheduled in the last minute before everyone dispersed for the day.
