Oxfordpsych CASC online course

Oxfordpsych CASC online courses are led by experienced consultant psychiatrists, clinical educators and CASC experienced actors who offer high quality, interactive training in small groups. The courses enable you to identify your learning needs and improve your skills to help you pass the CASC exams. 

Oxfordpsych CASC online courses are designed to help you learn the clinical and communication skills assessed in CASC, beginning with core clinical skills and working towards advanced skills in a systematic manner. Working in small groups, you will learn the skills and apply them in history taking, assessment and management stations, with both the shorter (90 second) and longer (4 minute) reading time, in alignment with the new online CASC exam format. The online course builds towards completing circuits of stations, across the CASC Blueprint, to time, with written feedback. 

Our newly designed Oxfordpsych CASC online course package now includes specific training to prepare you to conceptualise written information in 4 minutes, then to use that information in the new management, assessment and history taking stations in the new CASC format.

Oxfordpsych CASC online course booking includes brand new copy of the CASC Cluster Cards (perfect revision tool to pass the CASC exams - delivered to you by Amazon Prime delivery), access to high quality online CASC videos, online CASC course materials, covering the new style management, history taking and assessment scenarios. Access is available from time of booking until the next CASC exams.

Access to the online CASC videos and Cluster Cards is also available to purchase separately.
