Today Speech Advance spent the day with lecturers at Birmingham City University (BCU) examining first year students completing their OSCE's (Objective Structured Clinical Examinations). As always the lecturers and clinical educators were so welcoming and supportive to us visiting clinicans and to the students, which made the day so enjoyable. These examinations must be so nerve wrecking for the students but we're happy to say that all the students did well! So a massive well done to them all! And to the lecturers for preparing them so well! Read more >
