Medicine Interview Tips

Medical interviews are split into Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) and panel interview formats.

MMIs are split into a series of short stations that assess a wide variety of skills and qualities that are important for medical students and doctors to have. These can range from communication skills to your motivation for studying medicine to your understanding of medical ethics. Some of these stations may present scenarios and questions that seem unrelated to medicine but it is important to think about what the station is actually assessing. You can then construct your answers based on that.

Panel interviews involve being intervied by a small panel in one go. They will ask questions such as your qualities, your experiences, your thoughts about the course and many more in a similar fashion to a job interview. This can be an intimidating prospect for some candidates but also gives greater clarity in what you are asked and why.
