Take a look through our full programme below
What are Multiple Mini Interviews?
A brief introduction will explain what this type of interview is, why it has become more popular with medical schools and how it differs from the traditional interview process. Most applicants have little to no information on what the MMI involves so here we will get you up to speed on what the MMI is and how it works.
In-depth case studies
During these sessions, we will talk you through actual MMI stations and questions used by top Universities in previous years. You will find out stations and questions that have been used in the past as well as what the university is expecting from you at each of these stations.
This will give you a very clear idea of exactly the type of thing you can expect when you go for your own MMI and therefore prepare you better for it.
Public speaking and acting masterclass
For any kind of interview public speaking skills are an incredibly valuable asset and we will prepare you for this during this session.
During your MMI you are almost guaranteed to take part in some sort of role play, potentially demonstrating how you would give bad news or how you would react to a bizarre situation. Often these will require some form of improvisation as you will only be given the scenario moments before you begin. By preparing yourself with training in acting it can give you an edge at these stations on the big day.
Ethical issues are always prevalent in the field of medicine and as such you will almost certainly be posed an ethical query during your interview.
During this masterclass we will talk you through some of the most pressing ethical issues in medicine and show you how to make a considered response to a question put to you. We will talk you through how to structure your answers to this type of question and introduce you to the 4 pillars of medical ethics. All of which will ensure that you answer these questions in the best way possible.
In this session we will dissect and analyse a live mock MMI taking place. You will get to witness first hand both a poor interview as well as an example of an exemplary response, all with real-time critical analysis.
All this will give you the chance to see the type of questions you may be asked, what the universities are looking for from you (as well as what they don’t want to see), and exactly how a candidate can come across in an interview setting.
Communication is key when you are a doctor and universities will test these skills during the MMI. This may be through asking questions that involve you to clearly and concisely relay information or it could be in the form of a role play.
During this masterclass we will talk you through essential communication skills, from introductions and information gathering, all the way to body language and engagement.
As doctors you will have to use your maths skills to work out dosages and universities may test you on this through calculation stations.
For this masterclass we will walk you through the types of calculation problems you may come across. We will show you what the universities will be looking for, common pitfalls and key things to pay attention to.
MMI Practical Sessions
Now it’s time to put all you’ve learnt over the day into practice!
During these sessions, we will get you to try your hand at various MMI stations yourself, sampling many of the guaranteed type of questions you will come across at your interviews. One of the best ways to prepare for the MMI is to practise and here you will get that opportunity!
This final session will give you extra hints and tips to prepare you for your interviews. We will give you a range of meta-skills, tools and exercises to carry on after you finish the course, right up until you sit your MMI.
