DUHS adopts OSPE system
Karachi, April 18, 2008: The Dow University of Health Sciences (DUHS) on Thursday adopted the 'Objective Structured Practical Examinations' (OSPE) in place of the earlier system of viva and practical examinations. It will reduce the chances of "examiner bias," according to the DUHS.

This system has been proposed and approved by the Academic Council and the university Syndicate for the betterment of medical education. It has been appreciated by majority of the faculty members and the students of the DUHS, according to the statement.

The OSPE methodology of assessment is practiced in well reputed universities worldwide to maintain international standard of education. The DUHS is committed to improve medical education at undergraduate and postgraduate level. In this respect, it has introduced the semester system of education. Similarly, methods of evaluation have also changed to 'Single Best Questions' for theory and the OSPE for viva/practical evaluation.

This method of examination completely eliminates subjectivity, favouritism, and simultaneously the student has greater chances to express their knowledge. The News
