ABDO Extended Services Days

Date: Tuesday 20 November 2018 - Wednesday 21 November 2018 Location: ABDO National Resource Centre

 

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.

It is envisaged that the OSCE is likely to take in the early part of 2019. Further details will be released in due course. In order to sit the OSCE it is a requirement that you attend the ESD in the first instance (only one day is required).
