Not quite, but more of a standardization / moderation / monitoring set of OSCE stations & also some MCQ questions that are implanted in the current final year Aus medical examinations. These are the OSCE stations that have an 'extra' marker in them who is usually the national representative.Is this for final year? Like a kind of national bar exam for medicine?
There is now a National Psychology Exam (more like Law Bar Exam than what Ben has described for the OSCE) in Australia, too, in a bid to standardise graduate proficiency levels. I’m not sure about other areas of Allied Health, but if not, it’s probably on the way.[OFFTOPIC]
Huh. Interesting. Probably not a bad idea in a country with quite a few medical schools when they are all supposed to produce equivalent graduates [/OFFTOPIC]
As some of you may know there are usually 2-4 standardised osces in the final medical examinations. Thought it might be a good idea to compile a) when different unis have their osces and b) what sort of stations people get to attempt to work them out!

We have ours soon tooHi everyone,
Have any uni’s completed their final year exams and what stations did you have? I know there are usually standardised ones and we are definitely interested in those ones if anyone knows them?
