Weightage of Clinical Sciences disciplines in NRE – II

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 examination skills and key procedural skills.

The format of CSE will be similar to that of an objectively Structured Clinical Examination
(OSCE). The duration of CSE shall be approximately 3 hours and 30 minutes (including the
initial briefing) and will consist of 20 stations. Pass percentage is fixed at 60% for the final result of the CSE.

Each CSE station shall be assigned 8 minutes, with 2 minutes for the changeover. The details
about the content and conduct of CSE (duration, number of stations, pass percentage) remain subject to change at the discretion of PttI&DC. Provided, any such change is notified and displayed on the PM&DC website at least ’12 weeks prior to the date of commencement of the CSE.
