Little is known about the use of mobile technology for performance-based assessment in decentralized locations. Florida State University, College of Medicine is one of the first schools to take Formative Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (FOSCEs) and Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs) to faculty and students in six regional campuses and residency programs.
In this presentation, Deb Danforth MS, ARNP, FAANP, director of the Charlotte E. Maguire, M.D. and TMH Clinical Skills and Simulation Center and associate professor at the Florida State University College of Medicine and James McCrea, Regional Sales Specialist at EMS will talk about how the process of implementing OSCEs through mobile simulation training eliminates some of the disadvantages of a centralized program while providing many advantages.
They will also address the ease of integration between the mobile and centralized (enterprise) technologies.
