What is an MMI?

MMI's are a values-based recruitment method. Applicants move through a circuit of several stations, with different interviewers asking questions and scoring the applicant's performance. 

Face to face MMI interview

Virtual MMI interview

Who will be interviewed and when?

In 2020 the Faculty of Medicine will invite eligible Provisional Entry Applicants and Graduate Entry Applicants for an interview for 2021 intake. This includes domestic, international and UQ-Ochsner Pathway applicants. 

How are applicants selected for the interview?

Applicants will be invited for an interview based on their GAMSAT or UCAT ranking and interview places available.

What does the MMI assess?

The MMI aims to assess the applicant’s non-academic qualities, such as empathy, integrity, adaptability and verbal communication skills. MMIs have demonstrated high interrater reliability and good predictive validity. 

How do they work?

An applicant moves from station to station with short breaks between each station. A bell will announce the beginning and end of each station. MMIs will typically be delivered face to face.

Videoconferencing MMIs will be available to international applicants who live outside of Australia. This option may also be available to rural and remote applicants who cannot attend an interview in person. Videoconference MMIs will be conducted in the same way as the in-person MMIs in that each circuit will include the same number of stations and interviewers.  Each applicant will connect online. Unlike face to face MMIs, the interviewers move between computers as opposed to the applicant.   In this way, each candidate will also be required to answer the MMI questions from different interviewers, just like the face-to-face MMIs.

Multiple-Mini InterviewMMI circuit is made up of several stations, in which each candidate is interviewed on a one-to-one basis by an interviewer.Multiple-Mini Interview For applicants from interstate and overseas we will be delivering MMI’s via video conference.

Where will the interviews be held?

  • All international applicants for the graduate entry program
  • All domestic applicants for the graduate entry program 
  • All UQ-Ochsner applicants 

A decision has not yet been made on the format of Provisional Entry interviews scheduled for November. This decision will be made in the coming months.
