Preparing for the Pharmacy Technician Qualifying Examination - Part II (OSPE)
Part II of the Pharmacy Technician Qualifying Examination is an “objective structured clinical examination” (OSPE), and is taken on a different day than Part I. The OSPE consists of a series of “stations” simulating common and/or critical practical situations. These simulations often involve interactions with a “Standardized Patient” (SP) or “Standardized Client” (SC) (e.g., parent or caregiver) or “Standardized Health Professional” (SHP). Each station is designed to assess one or more competencies.
