Certain medical schools, dental schools, and healthcare programs (such as nursing and physical therapy) require that applicants write an online test called CASPer, a 90 minute web-based test, as part of the admissions process. Examples of schools that have used CASPer as an admissions tool include: McMaster University (McMaster), University of Ottawa (uOttawa), Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (Rutgers RWJ), and New York Medical College (NYMC).

Astroff CASPer Sample Video
Let's Start with a Sample CASPer Video. Watch the video below and then answer the 3 questions. (You have 5 minutes to answer the questions once the video ends.) This is a role-play – you are the doctor.
1.Do you tell Chelsea’s husband?
2. If her husband is also a patient of yours, does this change your answer?
3. Though all necessary precautions are taken, some physicians are reluctant to treat patients with HIV/AIDS for fear of personal infection. Should physicians be allowed to refuse service on the basis of disease? Explain.
Why Prepare in Advance for CASPer?
For example, an applicant’s CASPer result is worth 32% of the score used to determine interview eligibility for McMaster University, which represents the same weighting as candidates’ grades and MCAT scores.
With so much emphasis placed on CASPer, preparation is essential to secure an interview invitation. More than any other technique, practice simulations offer the best means of preparing for the test and giving you a competitive advantage. Simulations provide a better sense of what to expect, which reduces anxiety and allows you to be better placed to perform at your best.
