Abstract:

More reliable and validated method of assessment is the need of the hour for better summative evaluation of the students of pharmaceutical sciences. Competency or outcome based education models rely heavily on assessment methods. The objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) fits in to the gap and fulfills the requirement of testing the clinical/practical skills in more objective way. This review explores steps in planning and implementing an OSCE for institutes as well as high stakes exams. Organizations like Pharmacy Council of India and All India Council for Technical Education can develop guidelines to implement OSCE.

Key words: OSCE, Assessment, Pharmaceutical Education, Clinical Skills, Summative Evaluation.
