CLINICAL SKILLS EXAMINATION CSE

CSE aims to assess the essential clinical skills that would include interpretation of clinical data,including the diagnostic data, formulation of diagnosis, and development of management plans.

CSE would also include clinical examination skills and key procedural skills’
The format of CSE will be similar to that of an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE).

The duration of CSE Session 1 shall be approximately 2–3 hours (including the initial briefing) and will consist of 15 stations. Each CSE session-1 station shall be assigned 6-10 minutes, with 2 minutes for the changeover.


The duration of CSE Session-2 shall be approximately 3 hours (including the initial briefing) and will consist of 3 stations, 50 minutes per station.

The details about the content and conduct of CSE (duration. number of stations, pass percentage, and the number and type of mandatory stations, if any) remain subject to change at the discretion of PM&DC. Provided, any such change is notifiable and displayed on the PM&DC website at least 6 weeks prior to the date of commencement of the CSE.
