Selection process: The first step of the selection process, the one that will determine which applicants will be summoned for the Multiple Mini-Interviews (MMI), is the analysis of the academic record (rating R*). The Multiple Mini-Interviews represent the second step of the process. The final selection is based upon the results obtained in the two steps of the selection process, in the following proportion:
– Academic record: 50%
– MMI: 50%

*The performance rating for the last applicant summoned for a MMI in 2016 was 33.603 for college students and 32.979 for university students.
