50 OSCE Stations for DOHNS Part 2
Author: Katarzyna Konieczny
These carefully selected 50 OSCE stations will provide a framework around which one can base their revision for the DOHNS Part 2 exam of the Royal College of Surgeons. It covers all important stations in sufficient but succinct detail and provides core background knowledge required to pass the exam. The layout of the book in a question and answer format provides the user with an opportunity to test, systematise, and broaden one's knowledge and understanding of a wide range of ENT presentations (elective, emergency, benign and malignant). The scenarios also cover the essential aspects of applied anatomy, pathophysiology, radiology and pharmacology that one is likely to come across in ENT practices, and therefore, in the DOHNS exam. The text is complemented by a liberal use of clinical images, radiographs and illustrations to enable the reader to consolidate existing knowledge on common topics and easily comprehend unfamiliar clinical conditions. With over 300 questions spread amongst 50 OSCE stations, this book will be a valuable companion for those appearing for the DOHNS Part 2 exam in one of the UK Surgical Royal Colleges as well as similar examinations elsewhere in the world. "This book helps with some of the factual knowledge required. It is also important that the candidate always introduces themselves, explains what they are going to do to the patient and gets their permission before any examination or procedure and ensures patient privacy and dignity is maintained at all times. The book is very user friendly with good photographs and illustrations and succinct questions and answers. It will be useful not only for learning and self-testing but also as a basis for 'practicing' the exam with colleagues, which is a very beneficial and worthwhile exercise. I highly recommend this book to everyone taking the DOHNS and MRCS(ENT) exams". Foreword by: Mr. Mike Pringle FRCS(ORL), Consultant ENT Surgeon, Queen Alexandra Hospital, Portsmouth.
