Pocket Medical Interview is an MMI and panel interview practice app for pre-medical and pre-dental students made by Canadian medical and dental school graduates.
The Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) is an interview format pioneered by McMaster University in 2002 and has since been adopted at other academic institutions across North America and beyond. It uses multiple timed stations to assess applicants’ non-academic traits such as empathy, interpersonal skills, communication, and self-assessment. For many applicants, having limited time to come up with an organized response to a question prompt can be stressful.
Despite the abundance of preparatory material for certain aspects of medical and dental school applications such as the MCAT and DAT, high-quality resources for interview preparation are sparse. We have created over 500 critical thinking, ethical, and personal questions along with a selection of sample responses in order to help applicants prepare for interviews and feel confident on their interview day.
