As a follow-up to a 2010 conference session, this presentation will provide information about two innovative approaches to the assessment of internationally educated health professionals. Competency based assessments are an enhanced method of assessing applicants for registration and provide information in addition to that obtained through a document review. The assessments employ a variety of tools including credential review, self-assessment, traditional paper tests, interviews, case studies and clinical exams to assess entry to practice competencies. These processes utilize rigorous, transparent and fair methods that inform the regulatory body and the applicant about any competency gaps and provide direction for additional education or other activities required to enable professional registration.  This webinar included time for Questions and Answers and follow-up from the conference session.
