Commentary: oral exams—get them right or don't bother
We all recognise the importance of good communication, and in medical education we invest much effort in teaching students how to maximise their communication skills. The objective is always to talk and listen in ways that minimise the potential for misunderstanding. Roberts and colleagues provide a fascinating study of doctors talking to each other in an examination setting. Although this is a relatively small study, the methodologically exacting paper offers an example of the everyday practice of medical examinations writ large.

Abstract

We all recognise the importance of good communication, and in medical education we invest much effort in teaching students how to maximise their communication skills. The objective is always to talk and listen in ways that minimise the potential for misunderstanding. Roberts and colleagues provide a fascinating study of doctors talking to each other in an examination setting. Although this is a relatively small study, the methodologically exacting paper offers an example of the everyday practice of medical examinations writ large.
