Congratulations on your place studying Medicine at BL. Part of your medical training will consist of teaching you how to examine patients for signs and symptoms of disease (clinical skills). These new clinical skills will then be assessed in a part of the end of year examinations called the OSCEs.
It will be like no other exam you have sat before and to do well in it you need to not only practice the techniques but to know your clinical skills inside out!
CLASS (Clinical Learning And Skills Society) is the biggest society at Barts and the London and was set up specifically to provide support and teaching to help you tackle these novel exams.
Making yourself competent in Clinical Skills won’t just help you do well in your exams, but it will serve you well on the path to becoming a Doctor and your career thereafter!
