PLAB Part 2

Here are a few tips for preparing for the mannikins:

*Read about the stations such as PV examination, PR examination, Ophthalmoscopy, Otoscopy etc. from standard clical methods textbooks such as Hutchinson and McLeod's. Once you read it from these textbooks, you will be clear about the task and controversy can be avoided.

*Practice as much as possible and use a stop watch for timing.

*Speak as less as possible when you enter these stations. Don't waste too much time talking.Perform the actual task. Try to make short summary sentence such as 'I will ensure privacy, ask for a chaperone and explain the procedure.'

*You need not give a running commentary while performing the procedure, although it's not wrong if you do so.

*While asking for the things that you need , see what is available. eg. If gloves are available,use them.
Ask for whatever you need. Let the examiner say 'assume'. You don't have the right to assume unless the examiner or the question says so.

*Address the examiner. Don't address the mannikin.

*Thank the examiner before leaving the room. Thank any other person, such as an assistant in the room.

*After leaving the room , forget about that station. Say 'Next station' in your mind and go ahead.
