Sir Ewen Waterman Oration: Programmatic assessment: a vision for the future

Medical Education is moving towards a more integrated definition of competence or competency-based education, but to assess this is still problematic. Professor Van der Vleuten will present a systems approach to assessment of clinical competence and describe where we are with programmatic assessment and ask where we should go in the future?

Professor Cees van der Vleuten, started his career at the University of Maastricht in 1982 and was appointed Professor of Education and Chair of the Department of Educational Development and Research in the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences in 1996. Since 2005 he has been Scientific Director of the School of Health Professions Education. His primary expertise is in evaluation and assessment. He is published widely, consults internationally, mentors many researchers in medical education and has supervised more than 60 doctoral graduate students. In 2010 he received a Dutch royal decoration for the societal impact of his work and in 2012 the Karolinska Prize for Research in Medical Education.
