2019 OSCE Weekend Course
May 11-12, 2019
Total Hours: 16
In the OSCE prep course, students learn about the OSCE – the Objectively Structured Certification Examination that is administered to RMTS of the 5 regulated provinces (Newfoundland, PEI, New Brunswick, Ontario and British Columbia).
The course is not a requirement for application for the examination, however is extremely beneficial to those wishing to take the course as it provides insight into what is expected. This course also gives a brief description of regulation in Alberta, and is geared in preparation for the inevitable OSCE examinations that RMT’s in Alberta will have to complete in the future. Students are taught what the OSCE is in terms of examination. They also learn about the MCQ, a multiple-choice exam that must be completed prior to application to the OSCE portion of the certification. Students gain knowledge about the college of massage and the difference between a college and an association.
We also cover other topics such as:
- Where and when the OSCE's are held
- How to apply, and what to do if you fail
- The examination stations, what to expect and how to succeed
- The components of each station
- Each station in detail
- Rules and regulations
- Hands on time for 2 different complete OSCE-like scenario exams
- Breast and Chest Wall massage (as per MTAA standards of practice 43 and 44 – TIME PERMITTED)
This course is open to RMT’s who have completed a 2200-hour course. Course materials will be provided for you. You must bring scrubs and look professional. It is beneficial to also bring a set of comfortable clothing (shorts/sweatpants) as there is a hands-on component that may require you to have something more comfortable to wear.
Hours of class: 9-5 pm, Saturday and Sunday
