You will need a reliable internet connection, a computer or a tablet and a headset. Your internet connection should preferably be wired (using an ethernet cable). The quality of the video conferencing is of great importance to ensure that the technical issues do not get in the way of the interview.
We are using Zoom as our webinar platform as it provides a simple browser-based experience. Zoom works best when accessing it using Google Chrome browser. 
Medcast will provide technical support to the course participants, that includes setup guides and a technical host for each of the webinars. If you have any technical concerns you can contact us for assistance. Plan your webinar evenings ahead of time to ensure that you have a reliable connection, the right equipment, and no distractions.
The live webinars are held on weeknights (Sun - Fri) starting from 7pm, 7.30pm or 8pm. We allocate up to two (2) hours for each session, however the timing will depend on the participants’ performance and any discussions that take place.
Medcast will send reminders for the webinars and links to access the webinar room prior to each live event. However we suggest you familiarise yourself with the webinar schedule for the group you have chosen and add these dates to your calendar.
Participants will attend a total of 4 live webinars. You will be able to select a webinar group once you have enrolled in the course. Webinar group selection can be done in the webinars topic on the online course page. You can get in touch with us to check whether there are places still available in your preferred group before you enrol ( or 1300 652 046).
The webinar groups will have a maximum of 6 participants. Each group is facilitated by an experienced Medical Educator.
If you are unable to attend a scheduled webinar we will organise a make up session for you. However, you need to notify us in advance that you are unable to attend.
There will be at least 4 OSCE cases attempted during each webinar, so a total of 16 cases over the webinar series. We have a range of case types including short cases, long cases, VIVAs and critical appraisal.
The first webinar for each group includes a general discussion about the OSCE exams and an open forum for questions. The remainder of this webinar and the subsequent sessions involve practicing OSCE cases. Participants take it in turns to practice cases with the Medical Educator acting as the patient. The attempts are timed (including reading time - 3 mins, and the actual case - 8 mins) and there is also the opportunity to practice a long case. The Medical Educators then provide a structured feedback on the participants’ performance.
