Abstract

A simple format for a problem-solving written examination for testing students in clinical subjects was devised. A clinical problem was divided into several parts, which were described on separate pieces of paper. Students answered one part at a time, and then proceeded to the next part on which earlier relevant information was retained. The format requires students to recall, collate, analyse, interpret and synthesise information; it has been used successfully for seven years, and has potential as a teaching method.
