Trial Exam & Exam Preparation

HEAL offers online and face-to-face exam preparation experiences to provide students with the best possible resources to pass their clinical exam.

HEAL Clinical Trial Exam

HEAL's Clinical Trial Exam is widely recognised by the IMG community as being the most realistic and valuable trial exam. They are held in a clinical location, using trained role-players and examiners. 

Each trial exam is conducted using the same format as that of the Australian Medical Council (AMC) Clinical Examination, with 16 Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) stations and four rest stations. The OSCEs cover medical, surgical, psychiatric, obstetrics & gynaecology and paediatric clinical situations.

Candidates receive three different forms of feedback from their HEAL trial exam:

  1. Two minutes of feedback from the Examiner at each station after the station has been completed,
  2. Candidates receive a copy of the written marking sheet from each station,
  3. At the conclusion of the exam, candidates attend a feedback session by the exam overseer who focuses on all of the clinical stations you just completed.

There are two ways you can participate in our clinical trial exams. Either enrol in one of our clinical bridging courses (excluding the 6-Day Preparation Course), where clinical trial exams are included in the cost of the course, or, you can register for the trial exam on its own.

Facilitated AMC 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 Clinical Examination as much as possible, HEAL has created OSCE webinars which are facilitated by an experienced clinician.

OSCE Webinar Format

Each webinar is one hour long and contains two different scenarios. You will watch videos of experienced clinicians performing the role of the OSCE candidate, conducting clinical encounters with a trained Simulated Patient based on different scenarios (e.g. examination, diagnosis or management of a patient).

After the videos, you can engage in discussion 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 practice and provide an opportunity for you to ask questions to assist you to understand the rationale and approach for each performance – all from the comfort of your own home!
