Use the following sample CASPer questions, and CASPer sample video, as a starting point to practice for your upcoming CASPer test. In the real CASPer test, each section will contain either a scenario (short video) or a personal discussion topic, and then three questions to answer in any order that you wish. If the section contains a scenario, the scenario description will be preceded by a statement indicating what role you have in the scenario. For example, “You are the chair of the committee”. If the section is a personal discussion topic, the questions will appear immediately below the discussion topic. You will have a total of 5 minutes to answer all questions in a section. Make sure to time yourself to simulate the actual CASPer test conditions. Note: CASPer scenarios are not limited to medically related topics and can be from any real life situation.

Here's sample text-based scenario including follow up questions and our expert response.

You are a physician on duty at the local ER. A 'scruffy' looking middle aged man, dressed in sweat pants and an old sweater walks in complaining of severe back pain.

A nurse quietly tells you that this gentleman frequently visits the hospital and gets prescribed painkillers.

CASPer Sample Questions:

1. What is going through your mind right now?
2. What should you do in this situation?
3. How would you handle the patient if he kept insisting on getting prescribed painkillers?

2. What if you had information that the accused person is indeed guilty of other unrelated but more serious crimes for which you do not have any evidence that would hold up in the court?
