Academic Audit: Suggested Methods to Assess Medical Teachers Performance

Surya Prakasa Rao.

Abstract
One of the tools available to measure the adequacy of academic input is the ‘Academic Audit’. The academic audit provides an opportunity for a regular strategic overview of a college’s teaching-learning process. It also delineates the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and constraints for the assessment of medical teachers’ performance tools. Finally it improves to choose the cost effective methods of learning.
Academic audits are a rare entity among medical colleges. These centres of higher education, though in the ambit of universities have not rigorously been asked to demonstrate the quality of education imparted. In the few colleges where attempts are being made, the audit was unable to fulfil its objectives. Even now, medical colleges’ quality or excellence is measured by subjective measures.
After taking stock of the academic audit situation in Andhra Pradesh, it is suggested that these audits can be extended to assess the performance of the teachers. The expected roles of a medical teacher namely, medical care, teaching, research, human values, innovation and contribution towards society can be categorically assessed.

Key words: Academic audit; Performance; Faculty; Publications; Teaching; Universities
