In 2020 UQ's Faculty of Medicine will invite eligible Doctor of Medicine (graduate and provisional entry) applicants to participate in our multiple-mini interviews (MMI) as part of the admission process for the 2021 intake. This requirement is applicable to both international and domestic applicants.
MMIs are a values-based recruitment method whereby applicants move through a circuit of stations, with different interviewers asking questions and scoring the applicant's performance. The MMI aims to assess the applicant’s non-academic qualities, such as empathy, integrity, adaptability and verbal communication skills. MMIs have demonstrated inter-rater reliability and good predictive validity.
Online/videoconference MMIs will be available for all international applicants. Online MMIs will be conducted in the same manner as the in-person MMIs. That is, each circuit will include the same number of stations and interviewers. The candidate will be required to answer the MMI questions from different interviewers, just like the face-to-face MMIs.
