How does the Plab Doctors App Work?

One-Day Plab 1 Crash Course - 25th September, 2021.

For the Plab examination, practice really does make perfect. What's really worthwhile, however, is having access to the information that you need in order to practice for your exam effectively. We wanted to put your Plab practice right into your pocket, so that you can practice for your Plab exams wherever you go. You can take practice tests on Plab 1 questions. You can watch theory videos to explain concepts that you may not understand. You can even ask our Medical Educators (practising UK doctors themselves) any questions you may have about the exam. Happy studying!

IELTS Medical London is a training centre for healthcare professionals based in London, United Kingdom. We have supported many doctors through the Plab exam with the majority passing on their first attempt. We hope to do the same for you too.

In-Person PLAB 2 Courses

Our PLAB 2 courses cover all 16 scenarios, including a mock consultation or an acute ward.

What does the course cover?

We prepare you to demonstrate your competency to handle everything a UK trained doctor can expect to see on the first day of their Foundation Year 2. This includes the ability to apply your existing knowledge to care of your patients.

What does the course include?

We provide you with 10 days of in-person or online lectures to cover the following:

Data gathering, technical and assessment skills History taking, physical examination, practical procedures, investigations leading to a diagnosis
Clinical management skills Formulating a diagnosis, giving clear explanations to your patient formulating a management plan
Interpersonal skills Building rapport with the patient, using open and closed questioning, involving the patient and demonstrating your professionalism and understanding of ethical principles

What about the mock exam?

In our state-of-the-art Central London PLAB Training Centre, each room is a one of the 16 stations you need to complete. There are also 2 rest stations. Outside each room is patient information and inside the room is a trained actor to play your patient.
You will then need to complete your scenario against the clock.

During your mock exam, you may be required to interact with a live actor or a simulated patient. In some rooms, you will find a telephone or video call station where the call is connected before you enter the room.

In the physical examination stations, you will be assessed on your ability to conduct a physical examination on a mannikin. These include - but are not limited to - examination of the adbomen, breast, chest, hand, heart, joints, rectum or a bimanual vaginal examination.

You will be assessed on your ability to perform common practical procedures.
These practical skills may include:
  • checking blood pressure
  • performing venepuncture
  • inserting a cannula into a peripheral vein
  • calculating drug dosage
  • giving intravenous injections
  • mixing and injecting drugs into an intravenous bag
  • giving intramuscular and subcutaneous injections
  • basic cardio-pulmonary resuscitation (adult and child)
  • suturing
  • interpreting an electrocardiogram (ECG), X-rays or results of other investigations
  • interpreting basic respiratory function tests
  • performing urinary catheterisation
  • taking a cervical smear
  • Safe disposal of sharps
Throughout your mock exam, you will be provided with feedback about your interpersonal and communication skills in a range of scenarios and settings. We'll be looking out for your ability to:
  • explaining diagnosis, investigation and treatment
  • involving the patient in the decision-making
  • communicating with relatives
  • communicating with health care professionals
  • breaking bad news
  • seeking informed consent/clarification for an invasive procedure or obtaining consent for a post-mortem
