What is NAC OSCE?
The NAC OSCE is a clinical examination conducted by the National Assessment Collaboration in Canada. NAC OSCE accesses the knowledge, skill-set and clinical approach that are required of an International Medical Graduate (IMG) to transition into a private clinical practice as well as postgraduate medical training in Canada.
How long is the NAC OSCE exam?
The NAC OSCE is a one-day exam that determines your preparedness to enter a Canadian residency program.
NAC OSCE exam consists of 9-10 clinical stations that present and evaluate clinical scenarios and problems with a SP (Standardized Patient) seen in regular medical practice as well as in hospital settings. All candidates rotate through the same series of stations. You have to spend 11 minutes in each station with 2 minutes in between. Each station may have either one or more components of history taking, counseling, physical exam followed by a question and answer session with the examiner (around 3 minutes).
There are several tasks that may be asked for you to complete in each station. You may be required to complete one or more of the following:
♣ History taking
♣ Verbally describe a physical exam
♣ Manage a patient problem
♣ Counselling a patient/family member
♣ Answer SPs questions
♣ Summarize and present findings
♣ Read or reference materials pertaining to a patient including chart, test results or medication
♣ Interact with nursing staff
There are two sittings of the NAC OSCE exam each year around March and September. Passing the QE1 first, is no longer a prerequisite. In other words you may take the QE1 after the NAC exam. The deadline to apply for either the March or September exam is usually several months ahead.
From October 2021 onwards 2021 NAC OSCE exam will be offered “in-person." The “virtual” NAC OSCE exam will no longer be offered.
USMLE vs NAC OSCE
Compared to the USMLE 2CS and USMLE Step 3 Exam, the emphasis of the NAC Exam is quite different. It is based on a distinct set of particular expertise. It focuses on skills not taught in medical school such as communication, organization, and approach to common medical issues. These are essential to succeed on the test.
At Sure Success we cover and practice diagnosis, history taking skills, empathy, counseling, post-encounter questions and discussions, and how to take verbal physical exams, all according to up-to-date Canadian guidelines.
We create an environment that is as close to the real NAC OSCE exam setting as possible including experienced, high-scoring SPs, examination tables, necessary tools, x-ray images, instructor evaluations and more. We work with you to enhance your skills in multiple areas such as communication, organization, history taking, data interpretation, language fluency, physical examinations, investigations, diagnosis and treatment plan and management.
Students practice basic bedside manners and how to interview SPs while maintaining Canadian Ethical standards and the required confidentiality.
We also focus on body language, physician approach, effective communication with patients, physical examinations, timing and sequencing of history. We assist to prepare scripts and practice high yield clinical scenarios for the NAC OSCE Exam. We also hold focused strategy sessions and frequent mock examination sessions in small groups (6-8 physicians per group).
The most common error those who are preparing for NAC OSCE do is that they study for it as if it is a college course, i.e., on their own. But studies have shown that the more sense perceptions are involved in learning, the better is the outcome because your memory tends to retain the acquired concepts longer compared to when only reading and comprehension are used.
When you study on your own, you tend to only read and remember the concepts; whereas with us, you not only read but will have a chance to practice i.e., speaking as well as listening, taking notes, learning current guidelines as well as sharing notes with your peers. On top of that, all of our lectures are recorded, and you may keep them until your exam date, watch as many times as you like. And you don’t have to record them, we will record and send you the recorded video to your Google Drive, that way you can also save the disc space in your computer.
