CASTILHO, Euclides A.  and  COHN, Amélia. On the Brazilian National Medical Course Examination. Cad. Saúde Pública [online]. 2000, vol.16, n.4, pp. 1133-1136. ISSN 0102-311X.

In Brazil, implementation of the so-called "Provão", or National Medical Course Examination, has raised numerous levels of discussion. This article aims to identify patterns in some of the more controversial issues: whether the Exam is really an instrument for evaluation of medical courses themselves, or that of future physicians; adequacy of assumptions underlying the questions as formulated; and lack of precision in the questions.

Keywords : Medical Education; Evaluation; Health Occupations.
