What is the Virtual OSCE® ?

NDEB Explained:

In March 2023, the NDEB will administer the first Virtual OSCE. The Virtual OSCE will replace the current certification examinations, the Written Examination and OSCE.

The Virtual OSCE® is a summative examination that assesses the problem solving and critical decision-making skills required of beginning dental practitioners in Canada. Examination items are based on the knowledge, skills and abilities of beginning dental practitioners in Canada. The Virtual OSCE® is a national standard of competence for dentists in Canada. The examination leads to NDEB certification and is required for licensure in Canada.

The Virtual OSCE consists of 200 questions. There are 50 standard single answer multiple choice questions and 150 case based questions. The questions can include photos, radiographs, charts, and other supporting material.

The blueprint below shows the content areas and approximate percentage of questions in each area. Each blueprint category will contain questions pertaining to the diagnosis and/or the management of patients. Questions may also relate to pediatric or geriatric patients, patients with special needs, radiology, and pharmacology and/or therapeutics.
