Details about the Course

Course Structure

If you opted to practice one day Technical OSCE, you will be getting opportunity to get feedback from Australian registered dentist. Supervision will be for 3 hours, where you can get feedback about your past works and the work you will be accomplishing inside the scheduled supervision period. Candidates can utilise the lab throughout the day 9 am to 5 pm after the supervision time.

If you chose one day Skilled OSCE practice session, you will be getting a demo of three tasks according to our scheduled plan. Throughout the day, candidates can practise skilled OSCEs in the scheduled plan. (Please notice, with this plan candidates won’t be able to practise all the skills within 7.5 hours, but those skills scheduled to give demo will be available to practice).

You can also mix both the plans together for extra $50, for example: candidate can join the three skilled OSCE demo and practise session and add technical OSCE for the remaining time.
