Medical School Interviews
The Medical School interview for Direct Medical entry programs is the most important element of your medical school admissions profile in Canada, the United States and Internationally. Similar to traditional route medical school interviews, Direct Medical School entry programs use the MMI (Multiple Mini Interview), MPI (Modified Personal Interview) and Panel interview styles to interview pre-medical candidates. For most schools in Canada, the United States and Internationally, the MMI medical school interview or MMI variations, have become the standard format for medical school admissions, and succeeding in the MMI requires a skillset unlike any other interview format.

Medical School Interviews
The Direct Medical School Entry Strategy session is a foundational session to teach you the ins and outs of the medical school interview. The Direct Medical School Entry Strategy Session is led by an experienced physician with first-hand experience in both participating in and evaluating medical school interviews.
Our medical advisors adopt an evidence-based strategy to teach you how to successfully approach common MMI stations. Interviewers evaluate your thought process, general approach and poise. Through our training program, you will learn how to successfully navigate even the most complicated of MMI stations, stay on time and confidently impress your evaluator.
