A comparison of videotaped and live patient interview examinations and written examination in psychiatry



A comparison of videotaped and live patient interview examinations and written examination in psychiatry



American Journal of Psychiatry 134(10): 1093-1097



The authors scored the examination performance of 28 psychiatrists who were tested after conducting an interview with a real patient and after seeing a videotaped interview with an actor playing the role of either a psychotic or a neurotic patient. The also scored the performance of 15 of the same examinees who completed a written examination. Eighty-five percent of the examinees reported that the videotaped interview examination was a useful learning experience, and 81% said that it was a useful testing experience. The examiners' feelings varied regarding the use of the standardized videotaped format for certification and recertification of psychiatrists.
