Clinical Skill Verification (CSV)
Strengths of Clinical Skills Verification
• Direct observation of clinical skill
• Multiple observations and observers
• Defined areas for evaluation
• Specific anchors for performance
• Immediate feedback
• Ample opportunity for remediation
Evaluation Model
We recommend that the evaluation:
• Be done early in residency and repeated
frequently
• Include immediate feedback
• Avoid the “high-stakes exam” model
Evaluation Model
Mock Board Model
• Use the CSV for the current practice of
“Mock Board” exams
• Prearranged patients
• Scheduled interviews
Mock Board Model
Advantages
Disadvantages
• Familiar format
• Retains high-stakes
exam format
• Highly standardized
• Narrow patient
selection
• Difficult to
schedule
Evaluation Model
Workshop Model
• Use the CSV form for a workshop or class
on interviewing
• Involve peer resident observers
• Videotape the encounter
Workshop Model
Advantages
• Multiple residents
involved
• Highly
standardized
• Excellent
feedback (if
videotaped)
Disadvantages
• Few opportunities
for each resident to
interview
• Narrow patient
selection
Evaluation Model
Clinical Model
• Use the CSV form for any initial clinical
encounter with supervising faculty
• Inpatient admission
• Emergency room evaluation
• Outpatient assessment
Clinical Model
Advantages
• Broad range of
patients
• Many
opportunities to
interview
• Easy to schedule
Disadvantages
• Moderately
standardized
• Faculty buy-in
essential
Evaluation Model
We recommend that the evaluation:
• Occur during regularly scheduled clinical
rotations
• Involve the standard interview used in that
clinical setting
• Involve randomly selected patients
• Be done as part of the routines of clinical
care
Additional Issues
Programs may want to consider:
• Using the exam to test additional
competencies for their own purposes
• Requiring residents to pass the examination
before advancing through training
Additional Competencies
CSV requirements may be combined with
other clinical competencies:
• Case formulation
• Diagnostic assessment
• Treatment planning
Faculty Training
We recommend that programs:
• Offer training to faculty in how to conduct
and score the examination
• Make an effort to standardize scoring on the
examination
• Monitor inter-rater reliability internally
• Consider credentialing faculty as evaluators

1.
The strength of a Clinical Skills Verification
Examination stems from its ability to serve as a
forum for all of the following except:
A.
A high stakes examination
The in –residency CSV exam allows programs to
administer repeatedly and avoid the high-stakes
aspect.

4. Within a program, consistency of faculty
expectations and rating of residents on the CSV
exam can be maximized by:
D.
Monitoring inter-rater reliability
Along with faculty training on how to conduct and score the
examination, tracking inter-rater reliability among faculty after
observing the same performance and giving feedback to faculty
regarding their ratings compared to others is a very effective way of
standardizing ratings.
