|Abstract:||OBJECTIVES: To test whether a summative workplace-based assessment (WBA) is feasible and acceptable for international medical graduates (IMGs). DESIGN, SETTING AND PARTICIPANTS: A 6-month trial with 27 IMGs from teaching hospitals in Newcastle, Australia. IMGs were assessed by 65 trained assessors from different disciplines, using blueprinted, preset criteria. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Mini-clinical evaluation exercises, case-based discussions, in-training assessments and multisource feedback. At the end of the trial, assessors and candidates gave feedback. RESULTS: All IMGs were successful at the end of the assessment. The format was well received and acceptable to the candidates and assessors. CONCLUSIONS: WBA is feasible and acceptable to assessors and candidates for assessment of IMGs, but it is intensive in use of resources and time.|
