Making Workplace-Based Assessment Work for Trainees, Supervisors and Training Programs
May 30, 2018
Workplace-based assessments are an increasingly popular strategy to assess medical trainees' competencies in real clinical environments. The validity, utility, and fairness of workplace-based assessments are still debated, but recent medical education publications have shed light on ways to optimize the quality of workplace-based assessments. During this workshop, we will discuss how to design and implement workplace-based assessments that work for trainees, supervisors, and training programs.
By the end of this workshop, learners should be able to:
To discuss the benefits, roles, and challenges of workplace based assessments for trainees, supervisors, and programs;
To collectively generate potential strategies to overcome barriers related to the implementation and adoption of workplace-based assessments.
