Program Evaluation

The members of the Centre for Medical Education help to support the evaluation of educational innovations, courses and curricula at McGill’s Faculty of Medicine. They also inform the design and implementation of program evaluation through their research as well as their involvement in medical education in Canada and internationally.

Work in this area has included: the comparison between residency training and practice, the value of academic half-days in a residency program, procedural skills preparation, the evaluation of Physicianship, simulation, e-learning, longitudinal clerkships, transitions, service-learning activities, early clinical exposure in Family Medicine, serious games, admissions, interprofessional educational activities and more. Centre members have also been involved in evaluating non-educational programs related to the missions of the Faculty of Medicine, such as admissions, changes in resident duty hours, and a large-scale move and merger of teaching hospitals.
