Concerned about clinical grade inflation in your program? Then don’t miss watching this video and reading the article. This study examined the presence of grade inflation in clinical courses 9 years after implementing strategies to improve grading precision. A comparison of clinical grades for cohort I (1997-2002) with cohort II (2009-2016) showed statistically lower grades in 2 courses (Adult 1 and Maternity) for cohort II. The authors provide suggestions for changing the way clinical experiences are planned, executed, and evaluated.
