Background

    This study aims to explore the relationship between the performance of the Taiwan national summative objective structure clinical examination (OSCE) and the performance of portfolios in Under Graduate (UGY) students when they are trained in a surgical department

 

Conclusion

 

    Although there was a significant relation between the procedure skills station score of OSCE and score of surgical skill log score in Portfolios (p=0.031). The performance of Portfolios still can not predict the performance in a objective structure clinical examination (OSCE) in physical examination, history taking and communication station. We found the OSCE is still a necessary and important method for evaluation of clinical competences for Under Graduate (UGY) students when they are trained in a surgical department.

Take-home Messages

The portfolios can not predict the performance of a objective structure clinical examination (OSCE) for Under Graduate (UGY) students when they are trained in a surgical department.

Summary of Work

 

Ninety three under graduate students (Intern) who receive surgical training within a 3 months period at the Lin-Ko Chang Gung Memorial Hospital, Taiwan were included. We evaluated their learning and performance using portfolios and a 12-station summative OSCE at the end of program.

Summary of Results

 

The 12-station Taiwan summative OSCE included physical examination, history taking, communication and procedural skills stations. The performance scores of portfolios were compared with the scores of the OSCE. The results were below: physical examination station (p= 0.909), history taking station (p=0.394) and communication station (p=0.833). But the Procedure skills station’s scores were significant related to the scores of surgical skills practice log score in portfolio. (p=0.031) The total 12-station score of OSCE do not demonstrate a significant relationship to the score of portfolio. (p=0.148)
