COVID-19 pandemic has led to substantial changes in pharmacy curricula, including face-to-face session such as Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE). This session will share the redesign of clinical and communication pharmacy modules using MyDispense® to teach clinical and dispensing skill in the undergraduate pharmacy programme. The revised curriculum using virtual technology was implemented, and the feedback and outcomes were assessed. Faculty members comprising of pharmacy lecturers built the infrastructure, received training on the latest version of MyDispense® programme, developed learning units, and pilot tested the learning units.

Students had mixed opinions regarding their experience of using MyDispense® for web-based OSCE., Although majority of them agreed that they learned from this method of OSCE more than what they could have from the actual face-to-face OSCE. There is a great need to evaluate whether modified methods of OSCE compromise the pharmacy education standards.
