There has been increasing awareness of the need to assess the competence of physicians, not only during their training but also on a continuing basis. The necessity for instruments to measure physicians' abilities is emphasized by the tendency of specialty board to require evaluation and certification by individual institutions. With some exceptions little progress has been made in creating appropriate measurement devices. This report describes a technique for developing an instrument to assess clinical competence and the application of this instrument.
