Event Title

Multiple mini interviews (MMI)

Location

Executive Dining Halls 1 & 2

Start Date

25-1-2013 2:00 PM

Abstract

Overview

With interviews poor inter-rater reliability, subjective interview scores, lack of consistency regarding questions asked at interview and disagreement between panel members were some of the problems documented in the literature. Dr Kevin Eva and Patterson Ferguson were the first ones to develop structured multiple interview stations for undergraduate medical school selection. Thereafter MMIs have been used widely in other disciplines and postgraduate induction process of residency program, specifically at Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh. At AKU we have used this tool for Internship and Family Medicine Residency induction. This workshop will help participants to identify the competencies in a group by agreement and develop a scenario in small groups on 5 of the identified competencies. One of the scenarios will be discussed in the larger group for teasing out the competency/ies tested. The group members will individually rate the candidate in a shown video and justify their ratings.

Objectives

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to

  1. Identify the competences required for inducting candidates at undergraduate and postgraduate and recertification level
  2. Develop a scenario in a group of professionals
  3. Use a rating scale with descriptors to rate a candidate and discuss the justification of rating
