Workshop description

Patient and public involvement (PPI) has been an important agenda for medical educators for some while. A plethora of studies have demonstrated the value of engaging patients to work in medical schools as advisors, guest speakers and tutors, and as members of panels and committees. PPI in assessment of medical students, however, is less well documented.

This workshop is facilitated by experts working in PPI teaching and research, across the continuum of medical learning - from selection of students to medical school to their revalidation as practising doctors.

They will introduce you to the key issues and debates surrounding PPI in assessment, and encourage you to reflect on your own objectives, using group work to actively address the challenges, and opportunities, of engaging patients as assessors.
