I recently spoke with Christina Tan, a PhD graduate from the University of Stellenbosch, who conducted research into the validity of assessing exit-level outcomes in an undergraduate medical programme at three medical schools.
This is the second in our podcast series on research in health professions education. If you have any suggestions for future conversations, please let us know in the comments.
If you’d like to read more about Christina’s work, here is one of her recent papers: Tan, C., van Schalkwyk, S., Bezuidenhout, J. & Cilliers, F. (2016).
