SKKU-SOM Medical Education Seminar
The SKKU-SOM Office of Medical Education held a medical education seminar in the second half of 2019 in the Samsung Medical Center's Cancer Hospital on November 12th. Professor Boyoung Yoon of Inje University was invited to give a lecture around 'Strategies to strengthen clinical practice education; the Portfolio'.
Prof. Yoon proclaimed, "In competency education, all students should be evaluated in multiple ways to reach a level of each proficiency. I have no doubt that the portfolio process is one of the most practical evaluation tools to achieve this."
She emphasized that the strategy for strengthening clinical practice should give students the initiative in learning. The strategy has to have a system for monitoring progress by the professors in which students who fail to plan and implement structural feedback should undergo mentoring and counseling.
Finally, SKKU-SOM wrapped up the seminar by sharing the portfolio assessment going on at Inje University emphasizing that it is an effective tool for helping students understand and develop their capabilities.
