Multiple-Mini Interview (MMI)
The multiple mini interview started at McMaster University Medical School in Canada and last year was used by 19 US medical schools. MMI is designed to offer each candidate multiple scenario-based interviews—each with a different interviewer. The scenarios may be medical or ethical situations or even a task that must be performed by the group working together. The MMI allows candidates an opportunity to think on their feet; having multiple votes eliminates any positive or negative bias inherent in the traditional one-on-one interview.
