Corresponding author. Abstract Background The oral presentation of the clinical long case is commonly an implied knowledge. Objectives To highlight the different opinions and misconceptions of trainers as the basis for improving our understanding and assessment of oral presentation of the clinical long case. Methodology Questionnaire was administered during the West African College of Surgeons fellowship clinical examinations and at their workplaces. Eligibility criteria included being a surgeon, a trainer and responding to all questions. The 36 respondents were from 14 centers in Nigeria and Ghana. Eight Eleven Seventeen This highlights the need for standardization and consensus of what is expected at a formal oral presentation during the clinical long case examination in order to avoid subjectivity and bias. Keywords: Oral presentation, Compartmentalized presentation method, 5Cs-Method, Consensus required Introduction Clerking a patient and oral presentation of the patient are both arts that are learnt by constant practice early in the medical career. Clerking a patient is the process of extracting the history of the illness from the patient and examining the patient in detail, while oral presentation is recounting of the overall summary of the history and objective findings to superior colleagues, examiners or a panel of clinicians who would assess the quality of the clerking and proceed with questions on management and outcome. The process of clerking a patient is easier than the art of oral presentation, because in clerking a patient, the sections that should be addressed are well documented and the norms of interaction with the patient are clearly understood, uniformly accepted and explicitly communicated to trainees right from inception 1 , 2 , 3. On the contrary, aside from listening to the presenter and refuting or accepting the presentation as a whole or in part, the art of oral presentation is not usually explicitly addressed neither are the various methods of oral presentation for various occasions clearly communicated 4 , 5. This is so for several reasons: first the art of formal communication is inherently difficult; second, it is easy to assume that the oral presentation for formal discussion should be reported along the structures employed in the written report 4 , 6 , 7 ; third, the types of presentation, structure and the specific content are usually implied, tacit and not clearly defined.
