This chapter focuses on a number of different assessments that occur during clinical medical years and at the end of medical school, which may be formative or summative. The chapter reviews case presentations, and how best to structure them to reach a proposed management plan and summary. It provides students with an opportunity to explore differential diagnoses. It also discusses objective structured clinical examinations including examples of stations and practical advice with a focus on patient safety. This chapter includes examples of work-based assessments such as mini clinical evaluation exercises, case-based discussions, direct observation of procedural skills, and multisource feedback. It is written for both those looking to apply for medicine, and those in medical school.
