CBME Program Evaluation Summit

As CBME is increasingly adopted and implemented around the world, international organizations are also engaging in CBME program evaluation. CBME Program Evaluation allows us to understand if CBME is being implemented as intended, if it is having the desired impact and to learn about CBME implementation in other countries.

The CBME Program Evaluation Summit, hosted by the Royal College CBD Program Evaluation operations team in conjunction with ICRE, creates a space to gather those engaged in CBME program evaluation. Attendees can:

  • share their initiatives and ideas
  • hear from others
  • network and collaborate with other attendees
  • learn from thought leaders in the field
  • discuss emerging and prominent topics in CBME program evaluation
