WBA South Africa Roadshow 2022

Posted: 2022-06-13 08:00

The Workplace-Based Assessment (WBA) Steering Committee has been hard at work to develop a strategic framework leading towards the implementation of WBA of clinical competence for the education of medical and dental specialists in South Africa. To this end, the committee invites the educating community to a series of roadshows to bring everyone up to date on progress made and to recommit ourselves to the process. The purpose of the roadshows is to reflect on WBA as a crucial assessment modality for establishing clinical competence and to discuss the current plans for the introduction of these nationally.

The roadshows will be led by Professor Lionel Green-Thompson, Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Cape Town and Chairperson of the South African Committee of Medical Dean and Honorary Professor Vanessa Burch, Executive Director of Education and Assessment, CMSA. Both are members of the National WBA Steering Committee. The hosts will report on national progress on WBA implementation, engage with questions posed by participants, and discuss the way forward for rolling out assessment in the workplace in specialist and subspecialist training in South Africa. This is a joint initiative to chart the way forward and the webinars aim to build on existing experience and expertise in the field of assessment in the workplace in SA.
