Assessment of medical students in general practice provides a unique challenge to medical educators as it has an extremely broad and varied curriculum. This paper discusses some of the main challenges and choices presented to educators and outlines and one model of assessment currently used at the University of Melbourne. Integration of a variety of assessment tools and a greater contribution to the final examination are important considerations for the future of general practice and assessment in Australian medical schools.
