1. Learn about the MMI at your chosen medical school
Each MMI will be slightly different. Find out how many stations there are, if you get a rest between each station, and if you read the scenario/question before or during the station.
This will help you know how to practice, and there won’t be any surprises about the layout on the day. Also, see if you can find out which stations have come up in previous years. These will provide great practice and will give you an idea of the type and level of station that you will face.
Using any examples you can think of or find online, do times practice responding to these scenarios and/or questions.
Doing timed practise will help you master the art of condensing everything you want to say in the required time, or not finishing way before the time is up.
If you feel like you’ve exhausted your bank of stations, try grouping together a few regular panel interview questions. For example, talking about volunteering, what you have learned from it, and a difficult situation you have been in and how you resolved it; something like this may well come up in the MMI.
Each station is testing for something slightly different. Consider what they want you to demonstrate and try to get that across.
You’ve got to try to demonstrate some of the qualities of a good medical student/doctor at each stage of the MMI.
Perhaps make a list of the qualities you think a good doctor has, and think of one or more ways you could show each quality off in an interview setting. For example, you may have previously demonstrated good teamwork by being part of a sports team.
