The Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) has been widely adopted by many medical educators as a method of evaluating clinical competence. Due to its comprehensive nature, it has been used as formative and summative examinations in medical curricula and sometimes as part of high-stakes license exams by many medical educators. In 2013, the OSCE was officially incorporated into Taiwan’s National Medical License Examination (NMLE). All medical students must pass the exam to obtain their medical license. The aim of this study is to explore the attitudes that medical learners have towards the OSCE as a choice of evaluation in their clinical training and licensure exams. Eighty-eight first year family medicine residents who underwent an OSCE in their clinical training answered a survey regarding their views towards this type of exam. Their answers were compared to their examination scores. Pearson correlation coefficient and Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient was calculated to determine the linear relationships of the data and multivariate regression analysis was applied. Most residents accept the inclusion of the OSCE in their license exam and subspecialty license exam. The residents also reflected positively on this form of examination. However, no significance was found between their exam scores and acceptance of the OSCE. In conclusion, OSCE is seen as a favorable method of examination by medical learners. These results provide valuable information for medical educators and researchers seeking to understand learners’ acceptance and views on the OSCE. Further investigation is needed to determine the attitudes of residents from other departments and those who have underwent the NMLE’s OSCE.
