Course Overview

Course Content
At PLAB Guru we offer a 2 week comprehensive course focussing on all stations covered in the GMC PLAB 2 examination. A particular emphasis is placed on those areas found most challenging by International Medical Graduates (IMGs). These include:

-Breaking Bad News and Ethical Dilemmas (including consultations with Patients, Relatives and Other Healthcare Professionals)
-Communication and Interpersonal Skills (Building a Rapport, Empathy and Giving Instructions)
-Data Gathering (History Taking, Red Flags, Reaching a Diagnosis and Safety Netting).
-Practical Skills (Including unlimited access to our state-of-the art SimMan® and other manikin resources)

We have a proven track record with our many years of medical education experience and exam preparation. We pay special attention to those scenarios which candidates find most challenging and perform poorly at, so to ensure our students have a head start and achieve highly at these crucial stations.

Manikins & SimMan®
All of our candidates are provided with the opportunity to practice on state-of-the-art Manikins and SimMan® models which are a replica of those used in the exam itself. Our candidates have unlimited access to these resources and find it invaluable in their preparation for the exam.

Individualised Feedback
Our experienced course director- Prof S I Rizvi- with his decade’s worth of medical education experience personally provides you 1 to 1 individualised feedback and a tailor-made personal development plan helping you to pass your PLAB 2 exam. This feedback is provided in a confidential setting as many candidates prefer this approach compared with open class criticism which can dent confidence.

Mock Examinations
During our course, all candidates undergo a series of mock examinations which are based on the exam format used by the GMC for the PLAB 2 exam. Mocks are carried out in timed conditions with a combination of manikin and communication skills stations. Each station is observed which forms the basis of individual candidate feedback.
