Receiving an interview offer brings you one step closer to gaining a spot in medical school. The hard work, however, is not yet over! Interview preparation will maximise your opportunity to secure a place as a medical student.

Some applicants believe that there is no point in doing preparation for the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI), as they believe that performance in the interview is solely based upon your personality. Although your personality will affect your interview to some degree, practice can improve your ability to express yourself and your thoughts. Practice will allow you to showcase to the interviewer those characteristics that would be deemed desirable in a future medical student.

In particular, the MMI tests your ability to think on the spot, as it is likely that you will be presented with scenarios which you have not seen before. Therefore, it is important that you practise answering questions in response to unseen scenarios. This will not only improve your ability to think quickly, but also to articulate your reasoning and explain the basis for your decisions. The more you practise explaining your thinking, the more concise and clear you will be. The ability to give clear explanations is essential to being a good doctor.

It may be helpful to write scenarios for your friends and practise on each other, ensuring that constructive feedback is given. When writing practice scenarios, it consider some of the qualities for which the interviewers are looking. Some of these include empathy, teamwork and critical thinking. Practising with your peers also allows you to witness the interview from the perspective of an interviewer, and to gain an understanding of what characteristics are appealing, and which are less desirable. When practising, it is also a good idea to time yourself. Learn what five or ten minutes feels like, to prevent yourself from rambling or running overtime (or under-time) in the actual interview.

Ultimately, knowing that you have done some preparation will give you confidence. Confidence is crucial in preventing your nerves on the day from impacting upon your ability to perform. Patients want a doctor who they can trust. A degree of confidence will convey your own belief that you possess the qualities to become a desirable future medical practitioner.
