ASPIRE panels have developed criteria for recognising excellence in three areas:
|Assessment in a medical school
|Student engagement in the curriculum and in the medical school||Draft criteria|
|Social responsibility and accountability as a mission of the medical school||Draft criteria
The criteria produced represent a de facto set of standards for ‘best practice’ in medical education and effectively outline what ‘best practice’ in these three areas would look like.
The criteria adopted will be subject to continuing scrutiny and will be part of a dynamic process that responds to the experience gained and the changing demands placed on medical education.
