This week’s editorial

Eva GerdtsI recently observed how the final OSCE exam for medical students at the University of Oslo (UiO). An impressive organization in which the students were tested in communication skills, physical examination skills, cardio-pulmonary resuscitation, palpation of mamma, and interpretation of preparations, ECG and medical radiological images. An impressive testing battery, which appears to be superior to the final examinations that we do at our institute. To this year’s K2 Exam and Teaching seminar which takes place at Hotel Terminus on Wednesday September 17, we have invited professor Kristian Bjøro who is in charge of logistics and practical organization of the final OSCE exam for medical students at UiO. He will talk about his experience and organize a practical workshop on how to plan an OSCE station. The Board at Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry will in autumn 2014 decide upon the types of exams to be used in the new study program for medicine. It is very likely that OSCE will be introduced also at our faculty for medicine. You should therefor reserve the date, so that you do not miss this opportunity to learn about OSCE.
