An introduction to OSCEs
The School of Medicine uses Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) to assess the performance of Student Doctors across Years 2-4 of the MBChB Programme.
Our OSCE assessments use a sequential testing format. This a modern approach to assessment that is fairer to all students and allows an accurate determination of pass/fail standards in complex clinical assessments.
Each OSCE station has been designed at an appropriate level based on the learning outcomes for their year (and previous years) and the standard expected from a prepared and practised candidate.
Whether you are new to OSCEs or wish to refresh your knowledge as an experience examiner, the information within the Examiner Portal will guide you through the process.
