Deliver flexible, remote observed assessments

Allow your candidates, trainees and practitioners to participate in interviews or clinical skills assessments in any setting.

We can help you carry out objective structured OSCEs, orals and VIVAs and other assessments in a remote or semi-remote format seamlessly. Using video integration and simulated exam stations, we provide the flexibility you need for the changing assessment landscape.

Our team can guide you in future proofing for any potential Covid-19 restrictions, by supporting your move to remote assessments quickly and efficiently, whilst managing your longer-term transition to online or hybrid assessments.

"The confidence we got last year using Practique for our exams in years two and three, has given us the confidence to use Practique for the finals… and we will use Practique for all our OSCEs this year."
