This comprehensive book derives from some
chapters in the indispensable fourth edition of the
Guidebook for Clerkship Directors
, but expands
upon those chapters and contains critical new
information about milestones, professionalism,
and program evaluation.

It is useful not only for clerkship directors,
but also for pre-clinical educators, teachers
of electives and subinternships, the dean's
office, the student affairs office, residency
and fellowship program directors, and anyone
who teaches, advises, or mentors medical students.
It discusses all aspects of assessing learners,
with well-referenced presentations starting from
basic definitions, progressing through various
assessment methods, and including reviews of
the legal aspects of assessments.
