Next week, the third year class will undergo the Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCE). Passing the OSCE's are another one of those checks we require before entering into clinic in May...a really, really big check!

These exams were implemented 3 years ago as part of the continued progress towards ensuring ND's are ready for the field of being a Primary Care Doctor. The exams are the summation of all of our Primary Care knowledge up to this point and also tests our ability to clearly and effectively interact with patients. Although I am certainly under a lot of pressure right now, I can say that I'm proud that Primary Care is taken so seriously.

More on this topic after I pass!
