National Assessment Collaboration Examination (NAC OSCE)
The NAC Examination is a one-day exam that assesses your readiness to enter a Canadian residency program. It is a national, standardized examination that tests the knowledge, skills, and attitudes essential for entrance into postgraduate training in Canada. NAC OSCE Exam Preparation Course is an Objective Structured Clinical Examination that includes a series of stations where you are presented with typical clinical scenarios, Standardized Patients (SPs) as well as an examiner who marks your performance during an 11 minute time period. You are expected to demonstrate clinical skills in keeping with the standards of care offered here in Canada.
NAC OSCE Onsite Review and Live Mock
The NAC OSCE Exam Preparation Course review is onsite live 10 -12 sessions. These sessions are held in Mississauga. Each session is designed to cover different scenarios based on specialties. Each candidate gets equal opportunity to practice with trained Standardized Patients (SPs) brought in specially for the course. This session covers history taking strategies, physical examination, counseling and post-encounter questions all according to Canadian standards. All candidates are taught the basic bedside manners and how to interact with patients in real life scenarios in keeping with the principles of Ethics and confidentiality which are the hallmarks of Canadian Medical Practice. Our focused strategies help candidates hone their medical skills in light of Canadian Practices.
We have multiple Mock Exams for practice. These mock exams are close simulations of the real exam and as such are designed to help you better cope with exam anxiety. Each candidate needs to perform on 10 satiations. Each station is equipped with standardized patient and examiner on site. Detailed feedback, including tips to improve performance and maximize scoring, is provided for every candidate.
As of 2018 and 2019, there will be changes to the examination program, impacting all of our examinations, including the NAC Examination. For more information on these changes, please visit mccevolution.ca.
