IMPLEMENTATION OF THE OSCE METHOD TO IMPROVE GRADUATE QUALITY IN PLANNING A RADIOLOGY STUDENT SKILLS ASSESSMENT MODEL
OSCE stands for Objective Structured Clinical Examination, a testing method used in the medical and healthcare fields to evaluate a person's clinical skills. OSCE combines the objective and structured aspects of testing to evaluate clinical skills such as physical examination, communication, and diagnosis. The OSCE method measures graduates' abilities using a comprehensive testing method that produces competent graduates. This study aims to investigate how educational institutions plan and organize OSCE exams as a means of evaluating radiology students' skills. The study was conducted at the Radiology Study Program at Poltekkes Kemenkes Semarang in November-December 2022. This qualitative study uses a literature review method that involves searching electronic databases using Boolean Search methods and predetermined keywords. The data obtained were filtered, evaluated, and then reviewed. The study results show that in planning a model for assessing radiology students' skills using the OSCE method, the PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) approach based on Walter Shewhart's theory is effective. PDCA is useful for management as a working pattern to implement quality changes and measure and continuously improve them. The institution's quality control program involves joint commitment with management, planning, implementation, and evaluation. The PDCA approach can improve the effectiveness of monitoring activities in institutional quality control.
