TOSCE Stations

Ten TOSCEs were developed and evaluated.  Each station represents patient concerns commonly encountered in the primary care setting and require a multidisciplinary approach to effective care planning.  Each station package includes the following:

  1. A brief summary of the primary patient complaint (i.e. reason for visit)
  2. Instructions for the team participants
  3. Instructions for the observer(s)
  4. As applicable, other patient information/materials: depending on the station format you will find role-play patient or paper scripts, information vignettes, patient charts, hospital discharge summaries, lab reports, and brief video clips (paper copies of these scripts have also been included in case of video malfunction)

The following table is a summary of the TOSCE topics and the format of each station. Please click on the topic to access the station materials:
