Performance based assessment is the gold standard for competency evaluation in medicine; as pharmacists continue to expand their scope of practice towards more patient-focused care, it is becoming more prevalent in pharmacy practice and education as well.  To ensure readiness-to-practice, OSCEs have distinctive advantages over all other forms of assessment; this workshop is designed to help pharmacy faculty members implement OSCEs and performance based assessment into their courses and curricula.
OSCEs and performance based assessment are used widely in medicine and are the best available tools for evaluating practice-readiness.  The overall goal of this activity is to enhance confidence, knowledge, and skills of participants in implementing OSCEs and performance based assessments in their courses and the overall program curriculum.  Learning objective 1 focuses on the specific mechanics of OSCE development, while objective 2 focuses on implementation.  Learning Objective 3 provides participants with the opportunity to reflect upon personal and professional development goals and opportunities for application of new knowledge and skill to their teaching practice.
