Trial OSCE scenarios for the ACEM Fellowship Clinical Exam 2015.1 and beyond



The New OSCE format

Information about the new OSCE format can be found on the ACEM website (including an exam writing guide—OSCE writing starts on page 21)—as well as from Adelaide Emergency Physicians. In addition, this article is recommended reading about the OSCE process: Techniques for measuring clinical competence: objective structured clinical examination.

Each OSCE will consist of 3 minutes reading time followed by either 7 minutes (single) or 17 minutes (double) within the scenario.

These trial OSCEs are structured for a consistent approach, using the Curriculum Domains to show what is being tested. The components of a trial OSCE on this website will consist of:

  • The clinical stem and task
  • Special instructions for the candidate, actors and examiners as required
  • Curriculum Domains being tested
  • Answer expected
  • Categories and tags


The quality of trial OSCEs on this site is fully dependent on the users submitting them. I am unlikely to moderate/edit very much. They may or may not represent the actual ACEM FEx OSCEs.
