Before, immediately after and two weeks after the intervention, students’ prescribing skill was evaluated by OSCE. Finally, the collected data were analyzed with SPSS 18, ANOVA and Friedman Tests.

Findings: students’ prescribing skill after the intervention increased significantly in OSCE; there was a significant statistical difference (p>0.001) between before and immediately after the intervention, before and two weeks after the intervention. However, there was not a significant statistical difference (p=0.629) between immediately after the intervention and two weeks after the intervention.  Despite the rise in the acquired score in the scientific test after the intervention, there was no significant statistical difference (p<0.05).
