Book of OSCE, EMQ, and Single Best Answer (SBA)

Examination preparation could be very tense, hectic and full of anxiety but reading a revision book makes it interesting as scenarios are simulated depicting actual exam questions and perhaps, exam environment at your comfort. This book content is divided into three sections and each comprises of 18 OSCE stations, 50 EMQs and 75 SBAs respectively. All of these are based on standard obstetrics and Gynaecology syllabus and cover the recommended clinical areas based on international best practise. The book extensively offers answers and explanations for each question and hence serves as an excellent tool for revision for any standard clinical examinations. It is therefore my pleasure to recommend this book to all practicing medical doctors seeking to improve their knowledge in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and to Medical Educators, their students and all prospective examination candidates in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

About the Author

Matthew Anyanwu

As a doctor with unflinching unequivocal interest in academic progress I have written and published 6 obstetrics and gynaecology books in core book series of obstetrics and gynaecology in the tropics. The core essay books are in volumes (1 to 3), textbook in the labour ward management and OSCE (oral structured clinical examination), EMQ (Extended matching question) and SBA (single best answers) for candidates preparing for professional exams in obstetrics and gynaecology. An online publication of Long Acting Reversible Contraceptives in the Western Region of the Gambia by Lambert Academic publishers is available for online purchase for readers. All these books has been published and widely read by many.

Also I have published in peer-review journals all over the globe and in the last count I was the primary author in about 18 publications and co-author in about 5 publications. Some of the papers are frequently cited by researchers all over the world.

 As a reviewer in some journals I have reviewed 5 published articles in peer-review journals.

  I have participated actively in the formation of Gambia doctors since inception of the medical school. It was I and Dr Anya Sam who organized the first obstetrics and gynaecology professional exams for the first cohort of the medical students of which some of them are today fellow consultants in obstetrics and gynaecology.

 I started teaching at the University of the Gambia School of Medicine and Allied health sciences since 2009. The school intake has quadrupled over the years as a supervisor of student’s thesis the ratio of students per supervisor has also increased.


In 2016 I became a senior lecturer and in 2019 took a leave of absence for 2 years. During this period I joined American International University West Africa. I was appointed head of department in obstetrics and gynaecology and clinical director of clinical programs in the clinical health sciences of the university. The post I held until February 2021.


In this 2021 I have rejoined University of the Gambia School of Medicine and Allied Health sciences. In view of these academic achievements I will be submitting my resume for promotion. You can guess the position I will apply!
