Keep your OSCEs running

eSystem’s Remote OSCE module provides a flexible alternative solution for Life Science and Medical institutions to in-person OSCEs.

Offering all of the benefits of streamlined processes and reduced complexity when creating and running OSCEs, but, without the need for physical stations and locations.

The intuitive interface means it’s easy to use for all involved. And in-built video integration means there’s no need for third-party video software. Candidates, Examiners and Simulated Patients simply access the remote OSCE from their own setting.

Virtual OSCEs save time, money on travel and provide a robust alternative to in-person OSCEs in some circumstances.

All participants are provided with instructions upon entry to the exam. If there are images, these can be shared, for example, if a candidate wants to highlight an area of an X-ray. Examiners record candidate marks on the examiner mark sheets available in their station.

At the end of the station time, candidates are automatically moved to the next station in the circuit. Examiners and Simulated Patients remain in their station, waiting for the next candidate to join.

Post exam, run analysis and export reports to assess performance and gain insight into your exams.
