How it Works

The MMI consists of a series of short interviews, during which the applicant responds to a standardized scenario or question, then discusses with a rater. During some scenarios, the applicant interacts with an actor while a rater observes.

This cycle, the MMIs will be conducted virtually, so volunteers can participate from anywhere in the U.S.

Volunteer Requirements

  • MMI Raters can be physicians (practicing or retired), clinicians, nurses, scientists, or others with a connection to the health care field.
  • Volunteers are asked to commit to at least 4 MMI sessions between August and March.
    • Volunteers can select the days that work best for them – most sessions are held on Tuesday or Thursday mornings.
    • Each session is 3.5 to 4 hours long – volunteers must be present for the entire session.
    • Scoring is completed during the session and there is minimal preparation required.

About the Multiple Mini Interview

In 2011, the OHSU School of Medicine joined a cohort of medical schools using the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI), as a part of the M.D. admissions process.

Developed by McMaster University, the MMI is an interview format that consists of a series of short interview stations, each focused on a different question or scenario. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, the MMI is designed to assess communication skills, specifically verbal and nonverbal skills that cannot be measured by standardized exams or transcripts.
