Workplace-based assessment (WPBA)
Workplace-based assessment is an essential and significant element of specialist medical training. Workplace-based assessment is the assessment of a trainee’s professional skills and attitude and will provide evidence of appropriate everyday clinical competences. The Royal College of Pathologists supports and is fully committed to the development and implementation of workplace-based assessment as standard practice, initially in these four pathology specialties: chemical pathology, histopathology, medical microbiology and virology.
