In 1996, Mayo Medical School created and
implemented a new curriculum evaluation system
that is student driven, and based upon the
principles of continuous quality improvement (CQI).
The uniqueness of this evaluation process is in
the positive benefit to curriculum when students
become fully engaged and are entrusted with the
program. Several other schools within the
United States have either now adopted this
system, or are developing permutations for
incorporation into their own evaluation
programs. Representatives from two such
schools will be at this Audio Seminar to confirm
that it can function independent of class size
(ranging from 50 to 225 students per class).
In this one-hour IAMSE Audio Seminar, Dr.
Viggiano will outline the basics of this
evaluation system and describe the experience of
the Mayo Medical School. He will
concentrate on relating proven methods for
achieving student cooperation and enthusiasm.
Participants will be provided with example
evaluation forms and student-generated questions
that will be posted on the IAMSE website
specifically for this session.
