Weekly quizzes are used to assess resident knowledge. The topics coincide with the SCORE curriculum and the This Week In SCORE (TWIS) feature.
The monthly quiz is an online quiz that residents take at their leisure during the month and is based on concepts in the curriculum that month.
The pop quiz is based on the SCORE curriculum and utilizes TurningPoint Technology software and audience response devices. The audience response devices or “clickers” are assigned to each resident and various questions are asked via a PowerPoint presentation. Residents enter their answers using their “clicker” and can instantly view their results as well as the results of the other residents.
This training tool is engaging, informative, and interactive, and provides just the right balance of instruction and interaction in order for the message to trickle down to patient care.
This is a clinical examination where candidates rotate through exam “stations” or simulated midwifery scenarios using actors and models and respond to the situation as they would in clinical practice.
Our program conducts an OSCE twice each academic year at the WISER center. The OSCE runs on a two-year cycle so that each resident has the opportunity to participate in the same scenarios twice during residency. There are three cases for each OSCE.
Each case is 20 minutes in length and includes time to read the presenting scenario, conduct scenario, complete a self-assessment, and receive verbal feedback from the SP (standardized patient).
