Transformative Education
for Health Professionals

Direct entry of graduates

Recommendation 6

Health professionals’ education and training institutions should consider direct entry  of graduates from relevant undergraduate, postgraduate or other educational programmes into different or other levels of professional studies.

Quality of the evidence: Low

Strength of the recommendation: Conditional

We recommend the option in the context of close monitoring and evaluation

Key consideration:

Educational institutions should give consideration to the type of studies students have undertaken prior to a degree course, as a number of studies were identified that evaluated the predictors of success; these studies were excluded because they did not match with the outcomes under review, but should be considered in any implementation process.
