he aim of the present study is to describe ACEM trainees perspectives on assessment and feedback during their training. From May to July 2009, an anonymous Web-based survey on training and supervision in emergency medicine was conducted, addressing trainees perceptions of mandatory assessments (primary examination, fellowship examination and mandatory trainee research requirement) and feedback at work. Qualitative data were analysed using grounded theory methodology--themes were identified by close examination of full text responses. In total, 622 trainees responded to the survey (response rate of 37 ).
