Internationally, medical admissions are high-stakes and competitive. Therefore, selection methods should reliably identify whether candidates are likely to succeed in practice. Research shows that, as well as academic attainment, non-academic attributes are important predicators of performance and training. SJTs and MMIs may offer reliable and valid assessment solutions. This workshop summarises Medical admissions research, provides opportunity to practice SJT and MMI design, and gives insight into practicalities e.g. assessor calibration.
