Webinar:  NBME OSCE Enhancements

Presenter:  Chris Feddock, MD, MS, FAAP, FACP, Associate Vice President for Competency-Based Assessment at NBME

Session overview:  Dr. Chris Feddock first joined NBME in April of 2020, serving as the Executive Director of the Clinical Skills Evaluation Collaboration, which was previously responsible for the administration and strategic development of the USMLE Step 2 Clinical Skills examination.  Prior to joining NBME, he served as the Senior Associate Dean for Medical Student Education at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine.   In today’s webinar, Dr. Feddock will review the recent work performed by NBME to assess the current state of OSCE programs in U.S. medical schools and to collaborate with medical educators to best prepare the next generation of health professionals.  In October 2021, NBME released a survey over the DOCS listserv to better understand the medical education community’s priorities regarding their OSCE programs.  Then, in early January 2022, NBME announced a new funding opportunity to enhance the assessment of clinical reasoning in school based OSCEs.
