FRACGP: Writing cases for the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE)
This activity aims to introduce RACGP Fellow members to assessment in medical education, and provide instruction on how to write cases for the OSCE. It will cover key assessment concepts and outline important elements to consider when writing cases for clinical examination.
The ALM trains RACGP Fellow members on how to write OSCE cases for use in the FRACGP exams, which assess the ability of a GP to practice in unsupervised clinical general practice. Regular training of OSCE case writers ensures recent, relevant cases are available to be used in the exam, and a bank of suitable cases to select from for each exam cycle.
