WEB eVAL is here! – designed by the head of medical informatics at St. Paul’s Hospital

Dr. Ric Arseneau, an internist at UBC has designed a medical education administration software product called WEB eEval. The program was originally implemented in Internal Medicine at UBC. This system is a program that provides electronic interface for evaluation forms that are presently used: resident, faculty and rotation evaluations. WEB eVAL helps to provide evaluation in a timely manner and to make the evaluation process more meaningful and effective.
Dr. Arseneau spent two years of hard work and twelve months of unpaid leave to develop WEB eVAL, a technological framework for medical education evaluation. Head of medical informatics at St. Paul’s Hospital, and an associate professor at UBC, Arseneau’s efforts have won him a BC Innovation in Educational Technology award for Leadership. His software program has been adopted by twelve medical schools in Canada and is being reviewed by medical schools in the U.S. It provides support for medical administration and evaluation of medical educators, residents and undergraduate medical students.
