The Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) Study Group assists Internationally Trained Physicians in preparing for the National Assessment Collaboration (NAC). The competencies and the objectives for the NAC OSCE are reviewed and the expectations of a PGY1 resident are outlined for the different case scenarios presented. The sessions focus on taking an organized history, clinical knowledge and skills, physical exam skills, the think-aloud technique, approach to the patient, ethics, professionalism, communication, and decision-making abilities.
** Proof of registration will be required to register and can be sent to Monica (firstname.lastname@example.org).
This study group will be facilitated by Rabia Azhar, an AIMGA member who has experience in facilitating NAC-OSCE study groups.
