PLAB & PRES 3 OSCE Training Courses

Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB) Training


PLAB Coach offers the most up-to-date PLAB courses for both PLAB 1 and PLAB 2. Our PLAB training will take you above and beyond the requirements set by the General Medical Council UK. PLAB Coach offers venues worldwide including UK, Asia and Africa.

PLAB (Professional and Linguistics Assessments Board) is an assessment procedure that overseas doctors (or international medical graduates), from outside the European Economic Area and Switzerland, need to pass before they can legally practice medicine in the UK.

It is the principal route through which international medical graduates (IMGs) demonstrate the fundamental clinical skills and knowledge to practice medicine in the UK.

The level expected is that of a junior doctor who has completed the Foundation Year 1 (FY1). The PLAB Test covers everything a UK trained doctor might expect to see on the first day of Foundation Year Two (F2).

Having dissected the GMC PLAB blueprint PLAB Coach is thoroughly aware of the requirements to succeed in PLAB. We offer Professional PLAB Training Courses in accordance with currently published guidelines for both PLAB 1 and PLAB 2 along with Mock Exams in order to provide candidates with the best possible chance of passing their PLAB exams.
