OSCE examiner training videos
Welcome to the OSCE examiner training section.
On this page you will see video examples of OSCE examining.
We hope they will prove useful in showing you examples of good and bad examiner practice.
Please take some time to view them. They will help you to identify how to be a good examiner and some of the pitfalls to avoid.
At various points in the videos captions appear on the screen highlighting some examples of bad examiner practice, of which there are many.
We have also included downloadable OSCE examiner information for each station and a mark sheet so that you can try and mark the station yourself.
On this page you can also view a Powerpoint presentation on OSCE examining and download a reminder on the ‘do’s and don’ts of OSCE examining.
Please note: You will need to attend an OSCE examiner training session before becoming an examiner.
The videos were produced by Manchester Medical School.
