AAMC Standardized Video Interview Emergency Medicine Pilot for the 2018 ERAS Application Season
In an effort to improve the transition to residency process, the AAMC has launched a pilot program with the ACGME-accredited emergency medicine community to further assess the use of the Standardized Video Interview in the residency application and selection process.
All applicants to ACGME-accredited emergency medicine residency programs are required to complete the Standardized Video Interview as a mandatory component of their ERAS application.
The emergency medicine residency community has endorsed the use of the Standardized Video Interview for all applicants and program directors in ACGME-accredited emergency medicine programs.
The Standardized Video interview is an innovative tool that enables applicants to share objective, performance-based information about themselves, beyond academic metrics, to add breadth and depth to their application, as well as to provide residency program directors with additional information to assess applicants. The video interview is comprised of six questions around two ACGME competencies: knowledge of professional behaviors, and interpersonal and communication skills. The interviews are scored by trained third party raters, and those scores (along with the applicant videos) are then provided to residency program directors as an assessment of applicants’ behavioral competencies. The Standardized Video Interview scores are standard, objective, and triangulate with the Standardized Letter of Evaluation and other data available within the ERAS application.
