The Primary OSCE is one of the key elements of the
Primary FRCA (Fellowship of the Royal College of Anaesthetists) examinations.
Candidates have to rotate through 18 stations in 1 hour 48 minutes, with the
top 16 stations counting towards the candidate’s final result.
OSCEs for the Primary FRCA is written by two authors with
considerable experience of training new Primary FRCA candidates, and is based
on the feedback they have received from the candidates they have helped over
Printed in full colour, it is composed of 5 full exams, with model answers, which closely follow the
structure and format of the actual exam itself.
