Workshop: Ensuring Quality in Health Professional Education

Date/Time
31 Jul, Wednesday, 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Tahir Foundation Building (MD1), Level 3, Multi-Purpose Hall (MPH) 1
Description

Quality assurance and accreditation is important to assure that institutions and programmes meet threshold expectations of quality using a set of standards and improve education quality over time. Some common practices in quality assurance and accreditation includes a self-review by the institution or programme against the standards, an on-site visit by an evaluation team of peer experts and a subsequent review and decision by the accrediting body about accredited status. Hence, this workshop will cover quality maintenance, quality assurance, continuous quality improvement and accreditation.

At the end of the workshop, participants should be able to apply the basic principles of quality maintenance at programme level, discuss and apply principles of continuous quality improvement at Institutional level, apply principles of quality assurance and accreditation in health professional education to one’s own learning environment, and evaluate challenges, limitations and ways forward for maintaining quality assurance system.

The Medical Grand Challenge (MGC) is a student‐led medical innovation program started by the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine (NUS Medicine). It aims to encourage medical students to identify unmet healthcare needs and to work collaboratively with students from other faculties to form interdisciplinary teams to explore creative and out-of-the-box solutions to meet these needs. This is a year-long challenge, starting with a soft launch in August/September and culminating in competition night in August/September of the following year.

The team projects will be evaluated and scored for business strategy, creativity, design quality and healthcare impact by an esteemed panel of judges.

Our Aims: We hope to nurture the following attributes (6 ‘C’s) in NUS Undergraduates:

Curiosity – to question things and not accept current limitations

Creativity – to look beyond and find new solutions

Compassion – to care about issues affecting human health and well‐being

Collegiality – to be able to work in teams to achieve more

Collaboration – to find value in working with people from different disciplines and backgrounds
