Join us for the next webinar in our Evaluation and Research Webcast Series as we invite Assoc Prof Bunmi Malau-Adul and Dr Karen D’Souza, co-chairs of the Australasian Collaboration for Clinical Assessment in Medicine (ACCLAiM), to discuss some of the challenges COVID-19 has created for the field of health professional education assessment.

ACCLAiM is a community of practice that includes academic and administrative staff from universities across Australia and New Zealand. It was developed to provide quality assurance and benchmarking in clinical assessment, and is providing increased support to address challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Assoc Prof Malau-Adul and Dr D’Souza will highlight the co-development and sharing of ideas, knowledge, resources and research opportunities in the field of health professional educational assessment across Australia and New Zealand. They will also share information on the type of COVID-19 modifications made by the group to the clinical education assessment process during the
pandemic, and ideas for the future of clinical education assessment.

Discussion following the webinar will be facilitated by Professor Balakrishnan (Kichu) Nair AM.
