The Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) is the preferred interview format for many medical schools and other professional schools across the United States and Canada. In fact, over 50 allopathic and osteopathic US medical schools utilize the MMI. 

For students who are preparing for the MMI, the experience can definitely be anxiety-provoking. During an MMI, students are presented with challenging scenarios and then typically given just two minutes to prepare their response.

Our goal in writing this book is to help students prepare for this high-stakes and challenging interview. Our detailed advice, based on evidence from research in the field and the perspectives of faculty, will provide you with an insider’s perspective.
How can you prepare for the MMI, when you don’t know in advance what scenarios will be used?At one school, 12% of interview candidates received a “do not recommend” rating each year. What behaviors and attitudes would lead schools to reject applicants?The MMI was developed to measure specific noncognitive qualities that schools deem important for their future students. What are these qualities, and how can students emphasize them during the MMI?What is “assessor fatigue” and how can it affect your MMI score?Your interview score will depend heavily on your communication skills. What are the common communication problems encountered during the MMI?In one study, 10% of interviewees rated the MMI as worse than the traditional interview. What were their concerns?How can you use the limited time that you have at each station to deliver a memorable and impressive response that stands out? 
Includes 50 sample MMI questions and answers, along with advice to help you avoid common mistakes, and features cases and prompts covering hot topics and issues in medicine, including racism in healthcare, medical ethics, and ethical dilemmas related to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Utilizing a unique combination of evidence-based advice and an insider’s perspective, this book will help you achieve your ultimate goal: Medical School.
