  • Abstract:

    In the recent Transactions, the Colleges of Medicine of South Africa (CMSA) states that work-based assessment (WBA) should be an essential part of an assessment system, alongside the national professional examination. One of the main reasons for highlighting this topic is the fact that assessment enables our profession to demonstrate our accountability, and our commitment to reflecting professional practice standards, sustaining competence, improving performance and engaging in continuous quality improvement.
