Workplace-based assessment - Liverpool

The Royal College of Physicians' (RCP's) workplace-based assessment courses are interactive 1-day workshops that will teach participants how to use a range of assessment methods in order to appraise competence and performance more effectively.

What you will learn

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • recognise the differences, and the relationships, between assessment and appraisal
  • use appropriate methods of assessment in a way that ensures reliability, validity, transparency, feasibility and educational impact
  • provide good quality, useful feedback
  • identify and maximise opportunities for workplace-based assessments
  • overcome problems related to the assessment process.

It was useful as a trainee and as a trainer. Discussions from this workshop on how to give feedback systematically and how to deal with a defensive assessee […] were very practical and worth learning.

Dr Pyae Phyo San, CMT, York District Hospital, attended January 2017
