Level 2 - Outcomes for Clinical Skills

 

The new medical graduate should be able to demonstrate competency in a range of clinical skills unsupervised and to a predetermined standard.

 

Specific Issues

 

Exams are limited in terms of simulating the clinical setting realistically and in their ability to predict the performance of any individual in the future.

 

Recommended methods of assessment for Clinical Skills Outcomes include:

OSCE

Short cases

These are the currently the most reliable and valid methods available.

 

Other methods include:

OSLER

Logbooks

Case histories

These methods are either known to be less reliable and valid or require further evaluation in order to determine their usefulness.

 

Potential new methods of assessment include:

Linked OSCE and EMI questions in alternate stations

Linked OSCE stations

Addition of video to check reliability

Diagnostic Thinking Inventory
