Adult Gastroenterology Training Program

Role of OSCE and Written Exam Coordinator

All residents participate in mock OSCE and written examinations twice a year. The experience is invaluable preparation for the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada licensing examinations, and also facilitates organized thinking around problems and dilemmas in Gastroenterology. The results of these tests are reviewed and used as formative assessment tools to guide future learning objectives.

OSCE stations are generated by the OSCE Coordinating Committee and reviewed by the OSCE Coordinator and the Program Director before being implemented. Written exams are prepared by 2 faculty members (1 luminal and 1 hepatology) and submitted to the OSCE coordinator for review and approval prior to implementation.
