MMIs can be difficult to master, especially those like Bond University’s medical interview that has more recently involved a variety of formats, including scenarios, videos, roleplays, direct questions, essays booths and more. Each type of new station format requires its own sensible and distinct approach for meeting criteria, and each station format has its own pitfalls. Get your head around the types of booths that come up during the Bond MMI, and how you can take a confident, logical and rapport-driven approach for each station type.

The ’holy grail’ for MMI preparation is for interview applicants is to develop a sound mental model that helps you to understand, prepare for, and respond to MMI questions in a calm and intelligent way. This webinar helps you develop your own pair of powerful ‘MMI lenses’ to help you see through the stations to understand their true meanings and measures. At the same time, we address the easiest ways to show your true colours, manage your timing, insert personal anecdotes, show your dedication, and finally relinquish worries of freezing up, forgetting the question, losing your train of thought, or giving the wrong answer. Learn how to address ethics questions head-on in an appropriate way, using the right terminology and demonstrating your keen understanding of rights and responsibilities. Avoid the biggest pitfalls in leadership and teamwork questions, and most crucially, neatly step around the red flags that are there to reveal inappropriate applicants.

At medical interviews, it’s important to prepare your mind the right way (never learning answers off by rote!) and to turn up on your big day in the best state of mind. And even more importantly, you need to have a clear and strategic understanding of what is expected of you and why you’ve been asked to come in the first place. The moment it all ‘clicks’ for you, the whole interview process becomes instantly easier.

Learn to express yourself authentically while also sharing personal proof, meeting station requirements, and giving that little bit extra that makes you memorable, trustworthy and likable. This two-part webinar takes a formulaic approach to the Bond Medicine MMI, using past stations and past questions from the Bond MMI as learning tools to prepare yourself for your big day.

The webinar has two online components, separated by a self-study period:

Confidence comes with knowing yourself, having the relevant knowledge, understanding what is being measured, and having the confidence that you can reach these requirements with minimal cognitive load and maximum flexibility. Many medical applicants don’t realise how fun medical interviews can be when they are approached with the right attitude and a strategic, meaningful skillset, tailored slightly differently for each station format.
