In this paper the evaluation of reflective practices in medical education is analyzed, paying special attention to undergraduate medical training. Firstly, some definitions of reflection are reported, showing how this practice is differently conceptualized within the field of medical education. Subsequently, some prompts, aimed at facilitating students’/professionals’ reflection through writing, are reported. The importance of discussing reflective writings with peers/teachers is highlighted, and the value of receiving feedback is emphasized. The role of technologies in sharing writings and in conveying feedback is described. Finally, some tools to assess students’ reflective writings are critically discussed.
