Zucker School of Medicine
A guiding principle of the Zucker School of Medicine is that assessment drives learning. The School has incorporated into the educational program a comprehensive competency-based assessment system. This includes numerous opportunities for direct observation, feedback, and assessment of each student's developmental progress in achieving the educational program's explicit objectives and competencies. The overriding goal of the School's assessment system is to assist students in becoming reflective practitioners of medicine who embrace lifelong learning opportunities and complement them with a critical approach to self-assessment and self-improvement.
