To encourage broad use of simulation-based medical education and to establish partnership for objective structured clinical examination after clinical clerkship among medical teachers, we hosted the first team-based clinical skills competition events for medical students in Japan, named ‘Medical Students Simlympic Games 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017’. Student teams participated on a voluntary basis challenged OSCE-style skills tests in 6-8 stations, which actively utilized the strength of simulators or simulated patients. Different from conventional OSCE, which assess learner’s personal competency, our Simlympic games imposed clinical skills tests on 3 members. Team effort and leadership were assessed as well as personal skills such as medical interview, physical assessment and clinical decision making. For teachers, forming a committee for this national event have leaded to further understandings of clinical education and alliance among medical schools. In the webinar, I would like to look at a variety of agendas on clinical education and a new quality use of OSCE from this pleasant event.
