NAC-OSCE Study Group: Wednesdays

January 6, 2021 - February 24, 2021

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. These sessions are facilitated by an experienced medical educator from the U of A. 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.

The 8 online sessions will be on Wednesdays: January 6th, 13th, 20th, 27th, and February 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th.

The program objectives are:

  • to understand the exam objectives, format, and assessment criteria;
  • to increase clinical knowledge, decision-making, and management across a broad range of cases through discussion on current evidence, practice, and feedback;
  • to review specific tasks such as case presentations, interpreting of results based on expected formats;
