On RIME 2017

Learning in a clinical environment with real patients involves knowledge, skills and attitudes within a complex area. It therefore needs educational supervision with appropriate teaching and assessment formats. Especially the assessment of clinical performance on what doctors actually do in real practice is becoming increasingly important in under- and postgraduate medical education, and in the continuing medical education (CME) and continuing professional development (CPD) as well.

We addressed a broad target group from different professions in health care, including members of medical education societies, medical faculties, medical organisations and private hospital operators as well.


There are a large number of questions refering to the evidence of workplace based learning, teaching and assessment which was in the focus of interest during RIME 2017, for example:
