TICSE, Ray. The objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) in the evaluation of communication and professionalism competences in the medicine training subspecialties programs. Rev Med Hered [online]. 2017, vol.28, n.3, pp.192-199. ISSN 1018-130X.

Communication and professionalism are two competences that training subspecialties programs in medicine do consider essential among trainees. This review has the objective to evaluate the use of clinical simulation as an instrument to train residents of medicine subspecialties in getting competences in communication and professionalism. The OSCE is recommended by international accredited systems such as the Royal College of Physicians of Canada and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education of the USA. To asses competences in communication and professionalism, the OSCE uses validated scenarios of clinical simulation allowing formative and summative evaluations. OSCE can be implemented as a tool to asses competences in medicine subspecialties training programs.
