RCSEd Course Overview

The aim of the course is to provide a brief overview of the anatomy of the whole body in preparation for the anatomy component of the MRCS Part B (OSCE) examination.  This course runs in conjunction with the MRCS PART B (OSCE) Preparation Course, information for which can be found here.


Candidates preparing for the intercollegiate MRCS Part B (OSCE) examinationPriority for places on the course will be given to those attending the MRCS OSCE Preparation Course.

Course Format

This new one-day course is aimed primarily at those preparing for the MRCS Part B (OSCE) examination and is designed to introduce candidates to the anatomy of the whole body to the level of that expected in the examination.

The course will be delivered entirely online and will consist of a balanced mixture of overview presentations followed by demonstrations on images of cadaveric material.  Candidates will be encouraged to interact with the demonstrators by answering as well as by asking questions as the demonstrations progress. Consequently, the number of candidates able to join the course is restricted to a maximum of 12.

As this is an online course, there are certain points that candidates should be aware of:

  • All candidates must have a MAC/PC with admin access to install Zoom
  • All candidates must ensure that they have a reliable broadband/internet connection to allow for video conversation plus a webcam
  • A microphone headset is recommended but not mandatory

Course Objectives

The course is designed to introduce candidates to the extent and to the level of anatomical knowledge required for the MRCS Part B (OSCE) examination.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of this course, participants should have:

  • an indication as to the extent of the anatomy to be examined in the MRCS OSCE
  • an indication as to the level of the anatomy to be examined in the MRCS OSCE
