An Objective Structured Clinical Examination (O.S.C.E.) utilized in the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College’s teaching clinics is examined. The need for valid, reliable, objective, relevant and practical clinical examinations is emphasized. The development and administration of an O.S.C.E. is described and sample testing stations are presented. It is suggested that O.S.C.E. provides chiropractic colleges with an objective tool for assessing clinical competence.
