This small group course (9 to 12 students for 3 to 4 facilitators) is an opportunity for each student to be guided and coached throughout the day on each type of question and MMI station. The course covers panel practice as well as the MMI format of interviews, including role plays, ethical scenarios, etc. You will learn how to structure your answers, how to formulate your answers and be given feedback on your progress throughout the day. Our founder, Dr Jiva's advice is that if you only do one thing out of all the above to prepare for your interview, you should pick the course
"The medicine interview course days is when I have seen students improve the most their own skills and fastest. MMI circuits are great for additional practice and 1-1 tutoring are great to tackle specific weaknesses, but still, the full day course is the single most efficient preparation method where without fail a student really improves their skill from morning to evening. The coaching they get all day, repeated practice in a small group and feedback is the most effective methodology" - Dr Jiva.

The unique feature of our MMI circuit that no other course in the UK offer is that each student who attends gets a personalised circuit. For example, if you have applied to King's College London medical school, you can ask to do 10 past stations for King's college in your circuit. You can do the same with any medical school or dental school as we have been collecting past questions from each of them. Also unique to our MMI circuits is that you will be filmed throughout the circuit and at the end of the MMI circuit, you will go around again and this time the interviewers will be filmed giving you feedback. You will go home with the video of both your MMI circuit and the feedback, as well as the marking schemes of all the stations you practised.
How can you prepare for your medical school interview at home?
Interview coaching sessions are great for students who cannot come physically to attend our medical school interview course or our MMI circuit or for students who have a specific area they need further help. Interview coaching is also great to practice more interview questions specific to the school you are applying to and to give you mock interviews. They are usually run via video-conference and can also be in person depending on your location.
