A study investigated performance of 51 second-year internal medicine residents on an objective structured clinical examination and analyzed the test's role in evaluating clinical competence. The examination included nine physical diagnoses and several test-interpretation stations. Performance was analyzed statistically and correlated with standardized test and clinical rotation scores. Results suggest the test may evaluate skills not assessed elsewhere. (Author/MSE)
