PLAB preparation

Study for the PLAB
with Lecturio

The Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board test (PLAB test) ensures that doctors who graduated abroad have the right knowledge and skills to practice medicine in the United Kingdom. All medical graduates from outside the UK, European Economic Area (EEA), or Switzerland have to take this test.

The PLAB Part 1 and Part 2 cover the common, important, or acute conditions (Urology, Emergency Medicine, and Pediatrics) and the management of long-term conditions seen in primary care.

  • PLAB Part 1 contains 180 multiple choice, single best answer questions. PLAB Part 2 is a practical objective structured clinical examination (OSCE).
  • The PLAB exams test your application of medical knowledge to clinical practice that a FY2 doctor (internship completed) should be able to manage.
  • Both PLAB Part 1 and PLAB Part 2 must be passed before practicing medicine in the UK.
