OSCE

Observed/Objective Structured Clinical Examination. A UK examination format used to evaluate medical students and doctors in training. In an OSCE (pronounced OSS-kee), an assessor observes a doctor at a skills station, which requires the doctor to perform a task or carry out an examination with a clearly defined set of components that the candidate is expected to perform.
