The objective structured practical examination (OSPE) is now an accepted tool in the assessment of practical skills in Pre and Para-clinical subjects. There is however no strict or limiting guidelines on the types of scenario that are used in the OSPE examinations and experience and experimentation will inevitably result in the refinement of the OSPE as a tool for assessment. An attempt made in this direction at Manipal over past 7-8 years reaching to the current pattern is presented herewith. Aim of this paper is to provide basic idea on what is a multi-station OSPE examination and how it can be implemented in Forensic Medicine for those who are planning innovative changes in their respective departments.
