Toolbox for Assessment of Clinical Competence
BEST SELLER ON AMAZON
Changes in curricula have to be mirrored by a change in assessment. The contemporary focus on producing an Indian Medical Graduate – who is a clinician, leader, professional, communicator and life-long learner – demands assessment tools to address these roles. The concurrent changes in our understanding of clinical competence require us to move away from one tool- one competency model. This manual provides, in a simple and brief way, information to the teachers about various available assessment tools and helps them to make informed decisions to use optimal tools. The manual will also be useful as a background material for various training programs on assessment of clinical competence.
