Professor Kevin Eva. Honorary Professorial Fellow, Melbourne Medical School, Department of Medical Education
Internationally renowned researcher, Prof Kevin Eva, has accepted an honorary appointment as a Professorial Fellow in the Department of Medical Education.
Prof Eva is the Director of Educational Research and Scholarship at the University of British Columbia, Department of Medicine, Vancouver, Canada, and a Senior Scientist in the University’s Center for Health Education Scholarship.
His work on selection into medical courses has had a significant impact throughout Australia, with his ‘multiple mini interviews’ (MMIs) replacing the more traditional interview panels in most medical schools.
He is well-published in the development of clinical reasoning, learner self-regulation and assessment.
