Communication skills are the cornerstone of being a good doctor and there is a growing trend to incorporate these skills within the medical school curriculum. Medical students are normally well-versed in the medical knowledge needed for their OSCEs but often struggle with the key communication techniques required. This book helps to overcome this by combining a practical approach to communicating with the essential clinical knowledge needed for a successful consultation. It is written by medical students and junior doctors for medical students and junior doctors. Communication Skills for OSCEs is the first medical OSCEs book to focus on the key communication skills the medical student needs. Communication Skills for OSCEs prepares you for the examination setting but, in doing so, also provides the building blocks for good communication skills throughout your career.
