Monash Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI)

Monash Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) Format

Multi station Mini Interviews or Bellringer Interviews are used by Monash University and the University of Western Sydney. They are also used by Australian National University, Sydney University, Deakin University and Wollongong University for selection into graduate entry medicine. The following information provides some guidelines on the format of MMI:

  • There are typically a total of 8 to 10 MMI stations. A candidate will therefore be interviewed by a total of 8 to 10 individual interviewers.
  • The 8 to 10 MMI stations take place in 8 to 10 corresponding rooms that open out onto a single corridor and are usually arranged in series. A rest station is usually included midway through the MMI stations (toilet breaks are not provided other than that at the rest station).
  • Each room contains a table and one/two chairs. Interviewers and candidates are usually seated across a table from each other. A silent observer/actor may also be present. A glass of water may be provided in each room.
  • Interviewers are typically composed of members from the community (volunteers), final year medical students, interns, medical practitioners, and faculty members.
  • Each station is 5 to 8 minutes duration. There may be no clock in the room.
  • A bell is rung in the corridor (hence the name Bellringer interviews) and is the indicator for the candidates to leave one station and move to the next without entering it. Between stations, candidates sit/stand outside the next station to be entered (for 2 minutes) during which time they read the instructions (i.e. the stimulus) for that station, which is posted on the door.
  • Each station includes only one stimulus printed on a single page (usually on a laminated card). The stimulus is upto a few paragraphs long (usually only one paragraph). The stimulus will outline 1) the scenario that the candidate will confront in the corresponding station and 2) the precise role of the candidate in that scenario.
  • Most scenarios involve a clinical, teamwork or other educational context. Between one and five questions are typically asked of the candidate by the interviewer when the candidate enters the room. No prior technical or medical knowledge is assumed or expected.
  • Assessment of the candidate’s performance is on a 5 point scale, with 5 being the highest score possible (at some universities it is on a 4 point scale).

Perceptive and pertinent answers, which are well articulated, sensitive and non judgemental, are likely to be rewarded with a high score
