MMI Prep Course

Our MMI prep course is for students planning to sit their Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI). The comprehensive, one-day MMI preparation course that we offer focuses on preparing medics for circuit-style interviews.

The Multiple Mini Interviews consist of a short series of ‘station based’ interviews that last around 7-9 minutes. The MMI are a form of situational judgement test, designed to measure a variety of skills essential for doctors in their practice. They assess the capacity for critical thinking, collaboration, empathy, communication, ethical decision-making, focus on detail, cultural sensitivity, and knowledge of current healthcare issues. The interviews do not measure your current level of scientific or medical knowledge, rather your emotional intelligence, decision-making ability, and capacity to think on your feet, but preparation is still absolutely essential.
