    Traditional ward ratings and multiple-choice tests do not reliably assess clinical competence.

    This study determined the reliability of the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) and its sensitivity in detecting the performance gains and deficits in surgical interns.


    A comprehensive 35-station OSCE was administered to 23 incoming interns and seven outgoing interns.

    The OSCE comprised 17 two-part clinical problems, relying primarily on actual or simulated patients.

    The reliability of the examination was assessed by coefficient alpha.

    Significant differences in performance between the two intern groups, between parts A and B, and among the 17 problems were determined by a three-way ANOVA.
