BACKGROUND: Evaluation of clinical performance is an essential area of Medical Licensure Examination. Yet, clinical skills has been neither uniformly well taught nor adequately assessed. This study was done as a part of preliminary study to introduce clinical performance assessment to Korean Medical Licensure Examination. The goals of this study were to identify the potential logistic problems and to examine the feasibility of OSCE to Medical Licensure Examination. METHODS: 48 minutes long OSCE, which consist of eight 5-minute stations, was developed. The same examination was administered to students over a four-week period. RESULTS: Total 26 volunteer fourth-year medical students were tested. 11 students were examined at the first administration and the rest of them were evaluated four-week later. Cronbach alpha of the total stations was 0.52. Any big administration problems were not revealed. There was no significant total score difference between early examinee and later ones. Students evaluated the OSCE contents and process positively. CONCLUSION: To acquire more reliable and valid examination, we need to develop more objective checklist and evaluator and SP training.
