What Is the Medical MMI? 

The Medical Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) is a structured format used by medical schools to assess applicants' soft skills and personal qualities essential for success in medicine. It consists of short interview stations, typically eight to 12, evaluating skills such as:

  • Communication 
  • Self-awareness 
  • Maturity
  • Critical thinking
  • Empathy
  • Problem-solving
  • Decision-making

Preparing for the MMI is critical if you want to gain admission into med school. 

Medical MMI Interview Format & Structure

In the medical MMI Interview, applicants move through a structured series of stations. Here's how it typically works:

1. Preparation: A bell signals the start of each station. Applicants have two minutes to read a scenario or task on a clipboard outside the room.

2. Discussion: Another bell marks the entry into the room. Applicants then have eight minutes to discuss the scenario or complete the task.

3. Transition: Applicants move to the next station after the session ends.

4. Evaluation: Evaluators rate applicants after they leave each station.

The entire MMI circuit usually takes about 70 to 100 minutes. MMI formats may vary, so applicants should clarify any uncertainties with the admissions office beforehand.

How Does Inspira’s MMI Simulator Work?

Our Medical MMI Interview Practice Questions Simulator provides practice scenarios covering ethical scenarios and character development, helping you refine your responses and become familiar with the interview format. 

In the simulator, we ask the user several different types of typical MMI questions, including:

  • Ethical Scenarios: These questions present applicants with ethical dilemmas and may require them to discuss their reasoning or even role-play the scenario.
  • Character Development: Focuses on applicants' personal qualities, values, and attitudes, often without role-playing. Applicants may be asked to reflect on experiences that shaped their character or discuss their approach to challenging situations.
  • Teamwork: These questions assess applicants' ability to collaborate effectively with others in a medical context. Practice scenarios might involve working with a team to solve problems or navigate complex patient cases.

You will have two minutes to read each question and consider your responses. After this allotted time, you'll be directed to a page that covers how we would approach the given scenario. You can compare this information to your own response to see if you’ve covered all the key points.

When all questions are complete, you will find out if you’re adequately prepared for the MMI Interview or if more practice is needed to succeed.

Using this resource builds confidence and readiness for the MMI interview. If you need further assistance preparing for the MMI, we offer medical school interview coaching to guide you through the process!
