Let's Deans - Q&A with Professors Burt and Faull
The 9th of April marks the second instalment in EdForum's calendar. The Dean of Medicine Professor Alastair Burt and Deputy Dean Professor Randall Faull will be talking to the medical cohort on the future of medical education at Adelaide Uni.
The AMSS conducted a survey asking for student opinion regarding the use of the Medical Deans Australia and New Zealand (MDANZ) MCQs and how they wish to be incorporated in exams. The results showed a roughly even split between the two options of a single 4 hour MCQ paper and a separate 1 hour MDANZ paper in addition to the 3 hour MCQ. Attached is the report detailing these results.
Following this the faculty has elected to deliver the MDANZ questions in a separate paper. They are now seeking feedback whether students prefer the exam to be:
- On the same day as the MCQ/SCT exam (eg. Paper 2 from 9am-12pm and Paper 3 from 2-3pm)
- At least two days after Paper 2 (N.B. the Uni does not allow exams on consecutive days)
