Research

Our research focuses on students’ diversity and inclusion in the final phase of their medical study.

I'm proud that we have been able to demonstrate that the use of multiple assessments, as opposed to one global assessment, leads to less student-ethnicity related differences in clinical grades. Additionally, we have demonstrated that when assessors are limited in their freedom to adjust clinical grades, differences between students who have different ethnicities can be further reduced.

I appreciate good and transparent research, and I value diversity, not only in medical school but also other domains of society.

Research regarding stereotypes and bias in assessments, and social and academic fit of students who belong to underrepresented groups in medical school.
