The 4th Year Mock OSCE (Objective Structure Clinical Examination) is an annual APSA-run event. The OSCE is a component of the Pharmacy Examining Board of Canada Qualifying Exam that is required for licensure and is completed after graduation from a pharmacy school. Therefore, the Mock OSCE is a way for 4th year students to practice and receive constructive feedback before they take their OSCE – it is similar to your simulation labs.
There are 4 stations in the Mock OSCE and each 4th year student spends 11 minutes at each station (1 minute to read the case stem, 7 minutes to solve the case and 3 minutes to receive feedback). This year it will be held on April 3rd from 4-7:20PM - I will be needing volunteers for evaluators and standardized patients. Read the rest of this entry »
