Evaluating the marginal student: a workshop for clinical faculty.

Author information

Department of Family Medicine, Faculty of Health Sciences, Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada.


This article outlines a workshop designed to assist faculty in identifying students who are marginal or borderline and difficult to evaluate. The workshop's curriculum was tested out in three separate contexts over a 15-month period. The article also presents the results of the evaluation of the workshop curriculum and illustrates the complexities of relevant issues by using case scenarios that reflect the concerns shared among an interdisciplinary health sciences faculty. Responses to a post-workshop questionnaire indicated that the participants had benefitted from it and recommended its continuance.
