Free Exam Preparation Resources

HEAL offers online AMC exam preparation experiences to provide students with the best possible resources to pass their clinical or MCQ exam.

Facilitated AMC clinical and MCQ exam preparation webinars

Spending as much time as possible with your tutor and discussing cases is ideal, but sometimes, timing and other commitments prevent this. To help International Medical Graduates prepare for their AMC examination as much as possible, HEAL has created free monthly webinars, which are facilitated by an experienced clinician or a clinical communications teacher.

Each live webinar is one hour in duration. We offer a webinar for both the clinical exam and the MCQ exam. 

  • The clinical preparation webinar will contain different scenarios that may include experienced clinicians performing the role of the OSCE candidate. This clinician will conduct clinical encounters with a trained Simulated Patient covering examination, diagnosis or management of a patient. Alternatively, the facilitator will guide you through selected topics which will refine your approach to the AMC Clinical Examination.
  • The MCQ preparation webinar provides the opportunity for IMGs preparing for their MCQ exam to review a number of MCQ questions and choose your most appropriate response for the five options, across the 1-hour interactive class. The questions will then be discussed in detail with the facilitator. 

You can engage via the chat function with the facilitator for each case and examine ways to demonstrate improved clinical knowledge, professional skills and communication. The discussion will encourage you to critically reflect on your practice and provide an opportunity for you to ask questions to assist you to understand the rationale and approach – all from the comfort of your own home!

All webinars are run using Zoom.
