Remediation

October 24 – 25

Workshop hours are. 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (subject to change)

Most PA programs struggle with remediation. Simply having a student retake an exam is not effective remediation, but it's difficult to know what else to do. In this workshop, you'll learn how to: identify which students are more likely to experience difficulties; diagnose learner deficits; and create successful, individualized remediation strategies. A portion of the workshop consists of interactive cases from the presenters’ experiences in remediating struggling learners. Attendees will discover how to apply diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic skills to help struggling students be more successful in PA school and how to build a remediation program to support student success.

Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCEs)

October 24 – 25

Workshop hours are. 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (subject to change)

Many pitfalls exist in the design and execution of objective structured clinical examination (OSCEs) — potentially limiting their effectiveness — and putting course and program directors in the position of having to defend using a “subjective” examination for high-stakes testing. This two-day workshop will provide an in-depth introduction to OSCEs, including topics such as the use of patients and actors, the development of OSCE blueprints, and the essential elements comprising an effective OSCE station. Come learn from those who have refined the OSCE development and implementation process. All attendees will develop and leave with usable OSCE stations.
