Laboratory of Evaluation and Improvement of Medical Education

About Laboratory

Laboratory of Evaluation and Improvement of Medical Education was established at the Division of Teaching and Outcomes of Education, Faculty of Health Sciences, WMU in May 2014 after the University Exams Office had been set up at Warsaw Medical University in order to manage the administrative activity referring to the management of University test exams previously handled by the Division.

Mariusz Panczyk, PhD in Pharmacy, became Head of the Laboratory.

Tasks of the Laboratory include a detailed analysis of the effectiveness and efficacy of systems of higher medical education: evaluation of the quality of teaching and implementation of new educational methods.  The introduction of requirements of the European and National Qualification Frameworks into the Polish system of higher education as well as the reform of the higher medical education system imply a need for modification of the curricula, content and forms of teaching students. The research will aim to indicate the direction/directions of necessary changes in the Polish system of medical education (curricula, content and forms of teaching students) that are essential to introduce the outcome-based teaching in accordance with the guidelines of the European and National Qualification Frameworks. Additionally, the research undertaken in the Division is supposed to indicate elements contributing to the improvement of effectiveness and efficacy of the systems of ensuring the quality of education being developed, show directions of their modification and improvement. The research will be conducted in co-operation with domestic and foreign research centres, which shall allow for learning both positive and negative experience from other universities concerning the development and improvement of systems ensuring the quality of education.
