Description: Peers have been shown to be reliable raters in an objective structured clinical exam (OSCE). While the literature supports the use of senior level students in rating basic clinical skills, little is known about the reliability of peers of the same level of training in assessing complex clinical skills.This paper investigates the reliability of student peers of the same level of training in rating complex clinical skills in a geriatric OSCE.
