Closed file

What was the most interesting question?

"Perhaps the most interesting question was the non-disclosure statement that I signed... therefore prohibiting me from discussing questions in detail. However, in a vague sense, the most interesting questions were those that intricately conjured-up a discussion linking ethics and very current events." Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"A question pertaining to current problems with the health-care system and possible solutions." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read over my sketch. Watched the news. Remembered to set my clocks ahead one hour. And researched the MMI concept (did a pubmed search for multiple mini interview)." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The faculty were so enthusiastic to finally see students and the community members were really involved with the whole process. They went out of their way to take care of the interviewers, inviting family and friends on the city tour, to lunch, and on the tour of the campus." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Nothing that I wasn't expecting. The campus is however small, and Sudbury is more or less barren." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I wish I had known that the majority of my interviewers were concerned / involved members of the community and not faculty." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The MMI is an interesting concept. While initially fear of the unknown left me nervous, it turned out to be better than expected, and the 100 minutes of interviewing went really quickly. The format is designed to be more objective and somewhat standardized. And although I expected this design to do away with social niceties, I was mistaken. The interviewers (all 10 of them that I met) were genuinely interested in getting to know me as a person and as an individual who might one day practice medicine in their community." Report Response
