Twenty residents underwent Mini CEX (in addition to the existing teaching) while 20 had training through existing traditional teaching methods (lectures, SGDs, OPD, ward rounds, journal clubs, CPCs).
Each trainee in Mini-CEX group was issued 04 mini CEX proformas in the beginning of year 2 of residency program as a part of their clinical routine.
The mini CEX is a feasible, reliable, structured format for direct observation and provision of effective feedback to OBGYN residents.

Results of the first and last Mini CEX scores were compared to determine the efficiency of mini-CEX.
After each mini CEX, instant and relevant feedback is given9.
A one day workshop was conducted to train the faculty about the Mini CEX and how to give formative feedback.
Results of the first and last Mini CEX scores of the same resident were compared to determine the efficiency of mini-CEX.
Recently generalizability theory and D-study is also used for example Wilkinson et al used the same to report that for adequate reliability of DOPS, a trainee needs to be observed by a minimum of three assessors each observing a minimum of two procedures.16 Alves de Lima found that to achieve a reliable assessment using Mini CEX
an approximate sample of nine encounters was required each with a different assessor, four encounters with two observers per encounter and three encounters when three observers are used.17
Student's skills can be monitored by using multiple clinical evaluations during their study years like mini CEX
