Student Assessment and Program Evaluation

Student Assessment

The MD program uses a range of assessment modalities including multiple choice and written exams, OSCEs, project work, preceptor observation and encounter logging. The five Theme committees are responsible for developing questions and other assessments throughout the 4-year program alongside the three Phase committees. The Student Assessment and Promotion Committee (SAPC) is responsible for the development and implementation of student assessment regulations, policies, and procedures and student promotion and appeals policies.  


Program Evaluation

There is substantial and ongoing program evaluation throughout the MD program overseen by the Office of Program Evaluation and the Program Evaluation Committee. The Office of Program Evaluation gathers feedback from students, faculty, and community leaders and physicians on many aspects of the MD program. Program Evaluation reports are sent to all Theme/Course Chairs, Phase Coordinators, Directors, and Associate Deans.
