Assessment of clinical competence of medical students by using standardized patients with musculoskeletal problems.
To assess medical students' clinical competence in addressing musculoskeletal problems.
Nineteen junior medical students completed 2 Standardized patient-based tests structured to capture their clinical decisions from undiagnosed chief complaint to management.
No student approached the highest possible score on either test, and the students as a group received less than half the possible points on 5 important aspects of diagnostic reasoning.
Standardized patient-based tests can be structured to provide enlightening information about medical students' clinical competence with regard to musculoskeletal problems.
