Progressive research into information-rich testing programmes

How do you judge whether a medical student is or is going to be a good doctor? This question will be explored by Professor Lambert Schuwirth, who was appointed chair of ‘Education and research into innovative forms of testing’ at the Education Development and Research Department of the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences on 1 March 2007. Current testing methods often fall short when this consideration is made. New testing programmes and models will therefore have to be developed. Schuwirth hopes to build these in the coming years. If he succeeds, this will have far-reaching consequences, not only for the way in which medicine is taught, but for education in general.
