An Alternative to the Culminating OSCE: Aggregating Data Across Clerkship OSCEs

At Feinberg, each of the seven core third year clerkships have OSCE examinations which make up between 10 and 30 percent of a student’s clerkship grade. Because of this robust clerkship OSCE program, we do not have a culminating clinical skills assessment. Previously, OSCE results were siloed within clerkships, which reported scores in variable ways. In 2016, we began to issue end-of-thirdyear reports on students’ clinical skills aggregated across the seven OSCEs, allowing us to generate an overall score for communication, physical exam, and clinical reasoning skills based on 18 distinct cases over 7 different days. Our portfolio review committee has found these data very helpful to determine students’ independent clinical skills and readiness to undertake advanced clerkships or need for more support. Our students have used the reports to reflect on their skills and seek additional feedback for improvement if needed. We will describe the method we used to rank and aggregate scores, data we provide our students, and changes made for the 2018-2019 academic year to better align the OSCEs in their assessment of communication and clinical reasoning.
