This examination is a useful learning and assessment tool which was developed based on the feedback received from program directors across the country.

It also gives them the constructive feedback that will help them prepare for the Royal College Exam. Furthermore, it provides feedback to the program directors on how a fellow is doing in their current year of study. Finally, the exam helps to gauge how a fellow is progressing from year to year.
