How to create & share OSCE stations

With our OSCE Station creator, you can create your own OSCE stations and organise your OSCE stations into shareable circuits, making it easy to set up mock OSCE sessions with friends. All of this functionality is available to everyone for free.

Our advanced OSCE station creator software allows you to create mock OSCE stations. Each station is made up of student instructions, patient instructions and examiner instructions (including an OSCE checklist and optional examiner questions).

Candidate instructions

The candidate instructions section of our tool allows you to provide the patient’s presenting complaint and explain what the candidate should aim to achieve in the scenario, such as:

Taking a history
Suggesting what systems to examine

Patient instructions/script

The patient instructions section of our tool provides the person playing the role of the patient with information such as their symptoms and other relevant history (e.g. past medical history, social history).

If the station is focused on examination, you can include key examination findings and images of clinical signs.

OSCE checklist and examiner’s instructions

The examiner’s instructions provide an interactive checklist that the examiner uses to score the person playing the role of the student. Our OSCE Station Creator software makes it easy to create a checklist, including using our bank of checklist templates for common OSCE stations, which you can then adapt to suit your needs.

You can also add additional examiner questions.

Easily create a mock OSCE circuit

You can use our software to build and run a mock OSCE easily by choosing from our selection of high-quality mock stations and any you’ve created yourself using our intuitive OSCE Creator Tool.

Create a circuit by tapping the ‘Build to circuit’ button on the menu of OSCE stations and then choose the stations you want to include in the circuit.

You can then use our ‘Group Study Mode’ to assign roles (e.g. student, examiner, patient) for each station easily using a PIN.
