About this book

This book is an easy-to-read, practical guide for any medical school preparing for accreditation or institutional review. It contains practical guidance on the use of internationally accepted standards with a particular focus on what it is that external accrediting teams will be looking for both before and during their site visit. This book will appeal to medical school faculty as well as faculty from other health professions schools who are preparing for either high stakes accreditation or internal review. It may also appeal to agencies responsible for accrediting medical schools who wish to become more familiar with the international standards.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is intended as a ‘practical guide for medical educators preparing their medical education program for independent review.’ … The book serves a good purpose and meets the author’s objectives. … The discussion is broad and principled. … Particularly useful are the practical suggestions regarding development of a curriculum database, visual description of program design, and the enumeration of resources. … this book, though small, is worth reading and is recommended for those preparing for an institutional review.” (Frank R. Ames, Doody’s Review Service, January, 2013)

“This book is a handy DIY manual on the process of designing and implementing a quality assured medical education program … . the book is small but reads much more coherently than some more detailed downloadable guidelines or multi-author compilations. As the subtitle specifies it is a ‘practical guide’, and this is its strength because it lays down the circumspect essentials of how to get started and provides a synoptic view of what can otherwise unwittingly extrapolate into a convoluted, counterproductive exercise.” (Sushil Dawka, Internet Journal of Medical Update, Vol. 8 (1), January, 2013)
