Major curricular changes and reforms always bear some risk of failure. Moreover, frequently they evoke fears and resistance among the involved teaching staff. External evaluation/accreditation/certifcation not only are important tools to get sound and objective feedback about the general appropriateness of the reform direction chosen; they also may precipitate and overcome internal opposition in a most elegant manner. The presentation will focus on the experiences we made at the Medical University of Graz.
