The current method of conducting internal assessment and final examination in a 2 year course leading to M. Ch (Urology) qualification requires revaluation. Keeping in view its limitations and drawbacks, introduction of newer assessment techniques for more authentic judgement on a trainee's ability are called for. Sophisticated technology like use of computer and statistical analysis have to be given their due importance. In this article, we have tried to incorporate newer principles already being applied to other science courses in an attempt to fashion these to the M. Ch Urology course.
