Performance-based Assessment

At the University of Toronto, performance-based assessments occur at all levels of training – from first year training to the licensing stage. 

We are involved in:

  • End-of-year OSCEs for first year and second year medical students finishing their course called the Art and Science of Clinical Medicine
  • End-of clerkship OSCEs for Family Medicine, Surgery, Internal Medicine and Psychiatry (every six weeks)
  • Practical Assessment of fourth year pharmacy students
  • Resident OSCEs for training and final exam prep for the Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Paediatrics, Internal Medicine and Surgery
  • National licensing exams for the Pharmacy Examination Board of Canada (PEBC), Medical Council of Canada (MCC) and the Canadian Alliance of Physiotherapy Regulators (CAPR)
  • Quality Assurance programs for Ontario College of Pharmacy

Our staff are experienced and capable of effective training and administration of small and large scale exams. We also provide all necessary support staff. At a large exam we manage approximately 500 people, including: students, examiners, SPs and support staff.
