Advice on preparation for MMIs
Look at the non-cognitive competencies that we are testing (problem solving, ethical reasoning and communication etc) and look at your own background to see how you could demonstrate these qualities.
Before you go into the interview station consider what the scenario entails. You will have 1 minute to do this.
Ask yourself what competencies might the senario be trying to test. If it is a problem you are faced with, ask yourself what steps you would take to solve the problem, what are the options. Consider these with the assessor so that they can appreciate your decision making processes.
Remember that each station carries equal marks and that if you crash in one station you have lots of others to make up marks in.Click here for a Tipsheet on Multiple Mini Interviews for Medicine (courtesy of Career Services, Queen's University, Kingston, Canada, http://careers.queensu.ca/).
