Qualifying Exam 2: OSCE

OSCE REVIEW: PHARMACIST/GTA

Description

The OSCE part of the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada is considered by many candidates (both domestic and international) the most challenging part of the licensure process. This is not surprising due to the perceived subjective nature of the exam and increased exam anxiety and stress students place on themselves. The SolRx program hopes to eliminate these by providing a streamlined, structured process to approach any situation that may be presented. We will provide thorough in depth training so all students will be able to methodically approach each situation and communicate effectively to make the best decision for the patient on their assessment. This will be achieved with rigorous in class lessons focusing on communication skills, information gathering techniques as well as exhaustive coverage of many therapeutic areas. In addition to in class assessments, student will have 2 full mock exams consisting of 16 stations that mimic the exact exam format.
