Six hundred ninety seven medical doctors including professors, family physicians, and public health doctors were asked to express their opinion by mail questionnaire. Final items were selected after the reaction of questionnaires and each item has been carefully studied its validity, achievability, and practicality. RESULTS: Thirty five items were selected among fifty one items presented according to the checked number of "essential" and "frequently useful". Seven items were added according to the higher rate of recommendation by open questionnaire. The forty two items were confirmed as a final list which the students should be expected to demonstrate prior to graduation from undergraduate medical school("exit objective"). The OSCE was performed without any serious logistic problems and both examinees and evaluators thought the experience positively. CONCLUSION: To look at the present environment and the readiness it is recommendable to apply the items of psychomotor skills at the beginning for Medical Licensure Examination.
