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. It prepares you for the examination setting but, in doing so, also provides the building blocks for good communication skills throughout your career.
