Using Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) in speech and language therapy pre-registration clinical education

Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstract

Abstract

Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) are planned and structured assessments of clinical competence and established practice in medicine and nursing (Alinier, 2003). As performance assessments, they focus on what students can do rather than on theoretical knowledge (Harden, 1988). Students are expected to practice relevant clinical skills throughout placement, and are subsequently assessed on these in designated ‘stations’ demonstrating clinical competence in a specified time. This paper describes our approach to OSCEs in the assessment of clinical skills in pre-registration speech and language therapy (SLT) education.
