Virtual OSCEs During and After a Pandemic

Virtual OSCEs During and After a Pandemic

Recorded On: 08/11/2021

At the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, dental educators had to transition their in-person teaching and assessment processes to a virtual environment almost overnight. While sudden, the shift provided the opportunity to evaluate different educational methods that could be used even after pandemic-related restrictions are lifted.

Join us in this free webinar as we explore how the Harvard School of Dental Medicine (HSDM) planned and executed virtual Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) during the pandemic. We will also have an important discussion regarding the potential for this format’s continued role in dental education as in-person activities resume.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify steps and processes that led to the creation of virtual OSCEs at the HSDM.
  • Demonstrate how to plan and run virtual OSCEs.
  • Evaluate feedback from students and teachers after completion of virtual OSCEs.
  • Discuss the potential role of virtual OSCEs in dental education after in-person activities resume.
