Evaluative Activity

Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) is an assessment method that seeks to ascertain clinical skills by performing tasks within a predetermined time interval.

Real or standardized patient stations are available for tasks. The evaluator verifies that the proposed objectives are met and records the feedback in a checklist format document, observing the interaction of the physician with the patient.

The OSCE is one of the most reliable methods for both professional certification and active professional assessment and has even been used for the National Medical Degree Revalidation Exam (REVALIDA) in the years 2015, 2016 and 2017.
