UCPEX 2020 is going ahead as planned (20 and 21 November). Should we be required to postpone, the alternative dates are 26 and 27 February 2021.
Please also read this post on the website.
The UCPEX examination is held on the second or third weekend of November each year. The examination comprises a written paper and an OSCE (objective structured clinical examination).
The written paper comprises true/false, short-answer questions, and multiple-choice questions. All questions derive from the Urgent Care Course material. The answers required are those given in the material supplied on the course.
The OSCE examination is intended to test candidates’ practical urgent care abilities and clinical skills. The OSCE comprises a number of stations, each lasting about 7 minutes. You may be asked to examine a patient, demonstrate a technique, or to interpret an investigation, such as a test result, x-ray or ECG. There may be patients or patient actors present.
We have created general instructions for those seeking further guidance.
A clear pass in RNZCUC’s clinical notes audit is required before sitting.
The Board of Censors are responsible for the examination. An examination and examiner policy describes the policies and processes involved. Results are typically shared to candidates within 10 working days of the exam.
UCPEX 2020 written exam will take place at 2pm on Friday 20 November at Manukau Institute of Technology.
UCPEX 2020 OSCE will take place at 8am on Saturday 21 November at the Manukau Super Clinic.
Those attending the UCPEX (in any capacity) should read the administration instructions.
