Workplace Based Assessments

Workplace-based Assessments (WBAs) are paper-based assessments of a trainee's clinical skills during a normal working day in real clinical patient encounters. When a trainee is involved in a clinical encounter or performing a procedure that may be assessed, a suitable Assessor utilises the relevant form to assess the trainee's performance against the standards described for each criterion.

A suitable Assessor is one who has worked with the trainee and who can make a balanced and informed judgement of the trainee's performance; the Training Mentor, Training Supervisor or another 'teacher' who has guided and supported the trainee's knowledge and skill development, namely other consultants or registrars of obstetrics and gynaecology who hold Membership of the RANZCOG, who have been approved by the Training Supervisor to act as Assessors.

Detailed instructions on how to conduct each WBA are found on the relevant WBA form. It is imperative that trainees and Assessors familiarise themselves with the instructions, assessment criteria and clinical descriptors of ratings BEFORE undertaking the WBA.

Further details of the WBAs for each training program can be found in the CWH, DRANZCOG and DRANZCOG Advanced Curriculum.
