Mini-CEX (Mini Clinical Evaluation Exercise) is an assessment of an observed clinical encounter with immediate developmental feedback. A minimum of six observed encounters suggested in both F1 and F2. Mini-CEX is one form of observed clinical encounter.

A different observer/assessor should be used for each mini-CEX, wherever possible.

Observers/assessors may be Consultants, Resident Specialists, experienced HSTs, or GP specialists and should ideally include the educational supervisor.

Each mini-CEX should represent a different clinical problem, sampling each of the acute care categories: airway, breathing, circulation, neurological, psychological/behavioural and pain. The foundation doctor chooses the timing, problem and observer/assessor.
