Kassebaum, Donald G.; Eaglen, Robert H.; Cutler, Ellen R.
Academic Medicine, v72 n9 p807-18 Sep 1997
A study examined the operational meaning of 48 accreditation standards for teaching, learning, and evaluation in medical school, and determined the extent to which these standards were applied by schools and on-site evaluators for 59 programs, based on self-studies and accreditation surveyor reports. Results indicate schools pay attention to most standards; surveyors addressed them less rigorously. (MSE)
