HPAC International Advanced Assessment Masterclass
Why take this course?
After a three-year break due to COVID-19, HPAC is pleased to announce the reinstatement of our International Advanced Assessment Course (IAAC), which had been offered annually in London since 2007. The landscape of assessment has undergone some major changes and our revised and refreshed in-person programme reflects these key topics and discourses in this International Advanced Assessment Masterclass (IAAM), developed in collaboration with the Faculty of Dental Surgery of the Royal College of Surgeons of England.
The masterclass provides a state-of-the-art overview of current issues in health professions assessment, with advanced coverage of contemporary assessment methodologies and best practices.
