A group of prospective medical, dentistry and vet students were given the opportunity of experiencing a practice multiple-mini interview (MMI) at the Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital earlier this week. Being a prospective medical student, I found the experience to be highly beneficial.
The process enabled the students to have a first-hand experience of what most medical interviews will be like. Being interviewed by Doctors and other healthcare professionals, developing quick-thinking, vital communication and data analysis skills - all of which are important in the preparation for the medical profession.
There were 18 stations in which different questions or tasks were appointed, these involved different ethical scenarios, group discussions on current medical controversial topics and questioning personal statements.
The whole process was extremely helpful and informative and a big thank you goes to everyone who enabled us as prospective medical students to gain an advantageous step towards success in a medical school interview.
