Objective Structured Clinical Examination – Orientation lecture
May 11. 2021
Background: The end of training in a healthcare profession expects the candidates to be proficient in executing the desired clinical competency required for adequate patient care. Errors in making these judgements could place patients significantly at risk.
Are we making these judgments correctly?
Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) have become one of the most widely used methods of assessing aspects of clinical competency in healthcare education across the globe. This method of assessment was originally developed to address the unreliability and lack of generalizability of traditional forms of clinical assessment. OSCEs reduce bias relating to the type of clinical case selected and who performs the assessment.
Aim: To describe the Objective Structured Clinical Examination process that form the basis of many international exam structure
Objective: The faculty should be able to apply OSCE as an assessment tool in our curriculum when needed
