    AOAC Skill Assessment Stage 3 (3 of 5)

    The online clinical assessment requires candidates to work through 2 simulated osteopathy patient consultations and answer questions regarding information gathering, patient examination plan, differential diagnoses, red and yellow flags, likely diagnosis, prognosis and management planning. Candidates need to demonstrate an ability to tailor their responses to the specific patient presentation. The duration of the assessment is 2 hours (time and date will be scheduled in advance) and can be completed at the candidate’s home or workplace. It is essential the venue has reliable internet access to ensure candidate responses to the questions are saved and submitted successfully.
    An example simulated patient case with questions and answers is provided in the candidate guide.
    Candidates can register for Stage 3 once they have successfully completed Stage 2: Written examination.
