It is conditional that you will have successfully completed all modules in both MECS and GRM, for you to be eligible to participate. Clearly this presents an excellent opportunity to further enhance knowledge in both subjects and further prepare you for the forthcoming objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) day.

In order to sit the OSCE it is a requirement that you attend the ESD in the first instance.
