A Visiting Validator is  officially appointed to evaluate the programme including all separate modules and also receives the marks from all Parties and comments on the calibration and equivalence of the agreed marking systems.

The Visiting Validator’ reports on this long-term assessment will feed into the 4 year whole programme review. The Visiting Validator might decidde whether a formal ECT+ EMJMD course evaluation needs to be carried out by a high-level international committee (External Quality Assessment Board) by the completion fo a 4-yr period running the programme.
