The Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) Preparation Program assists Internationally Trained Physicians preparing for the National Assessment Collaboration (NAC) and/or the Medical Council of Canada Qualifying Exam Part 2 (MCCQE2). The competencies and the objectives for the NAC OSCE and QE2 are reviewed and the expectations of a PGY1 resident versus a PGY2 resident are outlined for the different case scenarios presented. These sessions are facilitated by an experienced medical educator from UofA. Standardized patients are used for hands-on practice. 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 program objectives are:
- to understand the exam objectives, format, and assessment criteria
