Workplace-based assessment (WPBA) is an increasingly important component of learning and assessment of registrars in postgraduate family medicine training. Learning as well as formative and summative assessment become blended together. Patients and communities need a doctor who can be trusted to be professional, competent and safe. WPBA moves us beyond formal examinations. Family physicians are expected to perform WPBA.
