Self-assessment of clerkship performance in obstetrics and gynecology was completed by 142 medical students and compared with departmental evaluations. Significant positive correlations existed between self- and departmental assessments for each of seven parameters in three categories of evaluation (clinical activities, written examination, and oral examinations). Students graded themselves lower than the actual faculty ratings and higher than the actual resident ratings. There was no difference in self- or departmental evaluations in regard to student gender. The amount of previous clerkship experience did not correlate with either the actual or perceived grades. Overall, self-assessments are consistent with those rendered by the department.
