Objective Structured Clinical Evaluation (OSCE) Program

An OSCE is an examination designed to test clinical skill performance and competence in a range of skills. It is a practical, real-world approach to learning and assessment.

OSCEs start with a simulated scenario involving a standardized patient. As the case plays out, instructors evaluate the student's clinical skills and diagnostic reasoning, which includes assessment and management of the patient's condition. Students should expect OSCEs to become more complex as their education continues.
