MRCEM OSCE

The College continues to offer Membership by Examination (MRCEM) for candidates who have passed all of the following examinations:

  • FRCEM Primary (or MRCEM Part A between 1 August 2012 and 1 August 2016)
  • FRCEM Intermediate SAQ (or MRCEM Part B between 1 August 2012 and 1 August 2016)
  • MRCEM OSCE (previously called Part C. Passed after 1 August 2012)

The MRCEM OSCE is designed to test both the theoretical knowledge and clinical skills of emergency medicine doctors. The OSCE stations test a wide variety of skills including history taking, physical examination, communication skills and the ability to perform practical procedures.

The MRCEM OSCE usually consists of a circuit of 18 stations, each of which is 7 minutes long. There are usually two ‘double stations’, which are 14 minutes longs and involve ALS, APLS or ATLS style scenarios.

What Doctors Are Saying

"I am new to the site, so it's difficult to comment on the content, but the Customer Service is OUTSTANDING. I had two early queries and they were answered and sorted extremely quickly. I have already committed to MRCEM Part B with these guys because of this. I trust these guys to continue to improve the site, and to be available if I have any problems in the future.   " Dr Thomas Maynard, Acute medicine/A&E SHO, Kent
" Statistically and speaking from experience, passing the MRCEM Part A is one of the hardest post graduate tasks that there is. The breadth of basic sciences and anatomy that you are expected to know is a formidable task. With the MRCEM exam still being a relatively new exam, the main problem prior to MRCEM Exam Prep was that there were simply not enough practice questions around to test the broad knowledge demanded to pass the exam. Many candidates often used practice MRCP/MRCS questions to aid their revision. MRCEM Exam Prep has a large bank of questions that are all specifically designed for MRCEM Part A candidates. Each question provides ample and logical reasoning for the answers. The questions are a perfect aid to test how well your revision is going and give you an indication of whether you will be successful in the exam. In short, use MRCEM Exam Prep and prepare to pass! " Dr Murtaza Ali, CT1 in Emergency Medicine, London
" MRCEM Exam Prep is an excellent way to prepare for the MRCEM. It is easy to dip in and out of and it's great that it works on my phone. There is a good broad coverage with in depth feedback after each question. " Dr Russell Ward, CT1 in Emergency Medicine, Guildford
