What is the Panel Interview?

The Panel Interview is a traditional interview format that predates both the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) and the Modified Personal Interview (MPI). It’s a single long-form interview that is used by medical schools all throughout the world.

A typical Panel Interview is anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 hour long. Candidates will be interviewed by a mix of medical doctors, students, and residents, community members, and other healthcare professionals.

The Panel Interview is designed to assess the quality of a candidate by highlighting their personality traits, critical thinking skills, professionalism, and dedication to becoming a doctor.

Panel Interviews: Approach your interview with the right information.

Traditional panel interviews include many parts. Even though you may have more time to elaborate with your answers, you should keep these best practices in mind:

  • Know what your interviewers are listening for. Be prepared to present yourself like a future doctor. Consistency and professionalism are key, along with knowing how to communicate your personal story to reinforce your fit and readiness for a career in medicine.
  • Refresh your knowledge on medical topics. Medical issues are always evolving. Demonstrate your deep understanding of current medicine and ethical issues to impress the evaluators.
  • Practice your interviewing skills. The Panel Interview is designed to assess how you perform under pressure. Ensure your interview skills are sharp and that you provide answers that both consistent and appropriate for a medical professional.
