MMI Crash Course – Schools
Our one-day course focused on training you up for the Multiple Mini Interviews.
Why the 6med MMI Course?
The 6med MMI crash course is the perfect way to prepare your students for the their upcoming interviews as we can turn a small hall into a realistic MMI centre.
With more medical schools changing from the more Traditional format to Multiple Mini Interviews, it is important that students are able to familiarise themselves with the format and be prepared for the process. By the end of the day students will have experienced 16 mock MMI stations, received detailed individualised feedback from our experienced medical student interviewers and obtained a copy of our 200-page A4 course book packed with interview advice. We also provide the school with general student feedback.
Our MMI Course
Our tried and tested MMI crash course has received widespread positive feedback ad high praise from both students and teachers who attribute their success to our course. 100% of students that have taken the course have expressed that they would recommend the course to a friend (see below for school testimonials).
The in-house mock MMI course consists of an 8 station circuit that students will cycle around twice. In each cycle, the stations students will attempt are:
- Current Topic Debate
- Medical Probity and Professionalism
- Data Interpretation
- Understanding of Role
- Work Experience + Motivation
- Breaking Bad News/Role Play
- Person/Patient Interaction
Just as in real-life MMIs, students have 1 minute to read the station blurb and 5 minutes to attempt the station to our panel of experienced medical student interviewers and actors. Following their attempt, interviewers will then provide students with written comprehensive positive and constructive personalised feedback for 3 minutes. During this feedback session, interviewers break down the students’ performance based on the station-specific criteria. When the 3 minutes are finished, students move on to the next station and start the process again.
We pair up students with one another throughout the day with them alternating turns of participation and observation – but by the end of the day each student will have had an opportunity to participate in every station. This allows students to learn from each other as well as enabling them to see the interviews from an examiners point of view.
