Assessing Research Competency in a Medical School Environment
Medical Science Educator
The goals of undergraduate medical student research experiences are extremely variable. A uniform tool to assess experiences that link expected competencies to performance is not available. Competencies for students participating in research, aligned with ACGME core competencies, were delineated and an assessment tool was constructed to provide feedback to students. Competencies include Medical Knowledge, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, and Professionalism. An overall assessment rating is derived and longitudinal assessment of students is possible.
