The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland (RCPI) has opened the booking window for the MRCPI OBG 2 OSCE February 2024 exams. As per the updates from RCPI, aspirants can confirm their seats from 22 November 2023 to 05 January 2024. The upcoming MRCPI Obstetrics and Gynaecology OSCE exam is scheduled to take place on 23 & 24 February 2024 in Muscat, Oman.
The MRCPI OBG 2 OSCE exam consists of an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) and a Clinical Examination. The exam is designed to test an aspirant’s knowledge and understanding in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, along with their problem-solving, diagnosis, investigation, treatment, clinical, and communication skills.
The OSCE has seven ten-minute stations and at least one rest station. At the clinical exam, you will see one simulated clinical case of 25 minutes in duration. This clinical case can be in either obstetrics or gynaecology. You will need to take a history and examine the equipment/role player before discussing the case with the examiners. Remember, all your actions will be fully observed by two examiners.
To confirm your seat, you must have passed the MRCPI Obstetrics and Gynaecology Part II Written exam within the past three years. The MRCPI OBG 2 OSCE exam is held twice a year in Ireland and three times a year in the Gulf region. There is only one examination centre in Ireland and four examination centres across UAE, Oman, and Saudi Arabia.
All applications need to be submitted online via an application form. As the places in the Obstetrics and Gynaecology Part II OSCE/Clinical examination are limited, sometimes you may not be able to get a place in the exam when you first apply.
You need to wait until the verifications are completed. Usually, it will take an approximate time of two weeks after the closing date for verifications. If your application is successfully accepted by RCPI, you will receive a confirmation email after the closing date. You will be asked to pay the fees only after that. Then you will get a confirmation of your exam place
. If RCPI can’t offer you a place in the OSCE/Clinical exam, you will be placed on a waiting list. You will be offered a place if any slot becomes available. It’s time for you to confirm your slots and wait for the confirmation from RCPI.
Remember, achieving MRCPI will surely help you to build your dream career in obstetrics and gynaecology. Book your slots now and open your pathway to higher specialty training and a dream career in hospital medicine.
