Medical education is witnessing changes across the globe to produce more competent and responsive medical graduates to meet patients' growing needs. Medical educators are aspiring for more objective and relevant assessment methods for the evaluation of medical graduates. Objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) introduced in the year 1975 for clinical evaluation has gone through many changes over the past 45 years and matured over time. The article describes the challenges of OSCE as a tool in medical assessment from students' and organizers' perspectives. We have also suggested a feasible solution to address the challenges while conducting OSCE to assess medical students.
