Postgraduate medical education is the highest level of medical education. The training quality of postgraduate medical education is not only the lifeline for the survival and development of medical schools, but also inextricably linked to people’s lives. Given the unique characteristics of medical education, the expanding scale of postgraduate medical education, and the increasingly diversified types of training, without any effective monitoring of the training process for medical postgraduates, both the quality of education and the development of the society will be affected. Master’s education in basic medicine is a crucial part of postgraduate medical education, but its training objectives are completely different from those of students with a master’s degree in clinic. Postgraduate education in basic medicine pays more attention to the mastery of knowledge and the cultivation of scientific and practical ability, showing greater foresight and individuality in its cultivation process. This paper discusses the postgraduate training mode in Wenzhou Medical University and creates an assessment system focusing on “literature reading ability,” “open literature transcription,” “distinctive academic report,” “multidisciplinary cross-opening,” “mid-term assessment with a blind review by an additional expert,” and “laboratory operation technique assessment.” Different assessments and evaluations are conducted at different stages to train postgraduates in mastering various experimental techniques and methods, while developing the ability to think independently, solve problems, and design research projects.
