This full-colour guide covers all aspects of the DO-HNS OSCE. Written by ENT trainees and a DO-HNS examiner, the easily accessible text closely follows the format of the actual exam. Following a step-by-step approach, each test OSCE station is based on past questions, and particularly emphasises the examination, communication and picture stations. It is highly recommended for candidates of the DO-HNS as well as current ENT and surgical trainees, GPs wishing to refresh their knowledge of common ENT problems and those with a special interest in ENT. Finally, it is an invaluable resource for medical students undertaking their ENT attachment and in preparation for final examinations.
