Examiner Appointments to Immediate Medical Care
Professional examinations play a key role in education and training for doctors, nurses and paramedics. In addition to providing a vehicle for summative assessment, they drive learning and provide reassurance that candidates can apply the necessary knowledge and skills for clinical practise.
High quality exams rely on high quality examiners. The role of the examiner is much more than the simple invigilation of a written paper or the assessment of a practical exam. The examiner contributes to development of the content of all parts of the examination and, through the standard setting process, defines the level of performance expected of candidates.
The introduction of the Pre-hospital Emergency Medicine (PHEM) sub-specialty curriculum and the further development of the Diploma and Fellowship in Immediate Medical Care as summative assessments for PHEM sub-specialist trainees has further emphasised the essential role of RCSEd examinations and examiners.
Becoming an examiner for the RCSEd is a significant professional achievement and requires personal commitment to the examinations process as well as subject matter expertise. The opportunity to contribute to the examination, and therefore the clinical practise, of future pre-hospital practitioners is both an honour and a privilege.
