This paper describes a process of outcomes assessment for a health sciences program in radiology at a university in South Africa. Its purpose is to demonstrate that while the process of outcomes assessment is universal, and can be used both nationally and internationally as long as underlying premises are met, assessment needs to be considered within the context of a country's unique culture, society and history.
