AMC launches website for delivering workplace based assessment resources

In Australia and internationally there is a growing interest in the use of workplace based assessment to assess clinical skills and competence. With the support of the Australian Government Department of Health, the AMC has developed a website to deliver WBA resources for a variety of users: assessors, candidates, WBA program providers, health education institutions and training and development teams. The WBAonline website will help AMC-accredited providers of WBA programs to improve and standardise their programs and give AMC candidates a very clear picture of what to expect when undertaking those programs.

See the website at wbaonline.amc.org.au.
