Abstract

Historically, selection into healthcare education and practitioner roles has relied heavily on prior academic attainment; however, there is now evidence demonstrating the value of selecting for ‘non-academic’ attributes such as integrity and empathy. Given that selection into healthcare roles is ‘high-stakes’ in nature, it is essential that selection processes are designed and developed in line with research evidence. This commentary outlines four key challenges to consider in the development of a future research agenda for selection into healthcare.
