Revised and expanded for the second edition, ENT OSCEs is an established full-colour revision guide covering all aspects of the DO-HNS and MRCS (ENT) OSCE. Written by a team of ENT specialty registrars, this accessible text follows a step-by-step approach with each test OSCE station based on the style of past questions. This new edition features more written stations, clinical examination walk-throughs and communication skills stations.
With over 100 colour images, ENT OSCES remains unrivalled as a tool with which to prepare for ENT exams. It is essential reading for candidates of the DO-HNS/MRCS (ENT) and will also aid trainees in preparation for specialty registrar national selection interviews. It is highly recommended for GPs wishing to refresh their knowledge of how to assess common ENT problems and will also be an ideal reference for any junior doctor learning to take histories and examinations in their first ENT post. Finally, it is an invaluable resource for medical students undertaking their ENT attachment and in preparation for final examinations.
