Evaluation of undergraduate medical education

The Finnish Education Evaluation Centre (FINEEC) has launched an evaluation of undergraduate medical education. The main aim of the evaluation is to produce an overall picture and information on the state as well as strengths of the education as well as development recommendations in relation to the changing competence requirements in doctors’ work and their future operating environment. The evaluation of undergraduate medical education will be conducted in accordance with the principle of enhancement-led evaluation which emphasises participation as well as trust between the party implementing the evaluation and the evaluation participant, as well as the responsibility of higher education institutions in enhancing the quality of their operations. The results of the evaluation will be published in spring 2018.
