the osce surprise

Just before exams, everyone (yeah, including myself) was rushing to attend procedural skills revision sessions for OSCE (a mouthful, but better than "Objective Structured Clinical Examination"). The skills coordinator was so nice, so calm and ever so helpful in revising and practising skills such as venepuncture, cannulation, suturing etc. As we were leaving the last revision session, she shouted out, "Relax guys, all of you will be all right for the procedural station!"

Yeah, sure...especially since out of the four stations, none of them were procedural. That's why she got to laugh and say "I gotcha" as we finished the exams ...
