Formatted Abstract/Summary
Well-developed oral communication skills are essential for medical professionals. A gap has been identified in the learning activities of Year 2 Clinical Practice courses (MEDI2021 & MEDI2022 ) relating to communication between medical professionals i.e. oral case presentation. The capstone Year 2 OSCE is an assessment of clinical skills, including oral clinical reasoning, however, it has not been clearly articulated where the students will learn this skill during the course. It has been assumed that students will acquire these skills during their clinical coaching sessions in Year 2 without any formal instruction or feedback. In response to this curriculum gap, we introduced an Oral Case Presentation as formative assessment in MEDI20 22 (Clinical Practice 2) . It has been integrated into the Summative Portfolio Assignment, with the students presenting their written Long Case as an Oral Case Presentation to their clinical coaching group and tutor. This new learning activity is designed to provide students with the opportunity to practise oral presentation skill s in a safe, structured environment prior to their Summative Objective Structured Clinical Examination.

The purpose of this evaluation is to determine the impact of this learning activity on students’ self-reported readiness (knowledge, confidence and experience) for the Year 2 Objective Structured Clinical Examination.
