Abstract

The objective structured clinical exam (OSCE) has been used in medical schools and residency programs throughout the world to evaluate skills in various programs, and in some settings functions as an instructional exercise to teach the physical exam and medical interview. The authors developed and piloted an innovative geriatrics objective structured clinical exam, GOSCE, that was used primarily as a tool for teaching, rather than as a tool for clinical assessment. This article describes the pilot project, which demonstrated that the GOSCE is an effective teaching method, and provides the impetus to residency programs to incorporate its use into their teaching curriculum.
