BACKGROUND: The Multiple Mini-Interview (MMI) uses short, structured contacts, and is known to predict medical school success better than traditional interviews and application materials. Its utility in Emergency Medicine residency selection is untested. OBJECTIVES: We investigate whether it provides additional information regarding future first-year resident performance that can be useful in resident selection. METHODS: From three Emergency Medicine residency programs, 71 interns in their first month completed an MMI developed to focus on desirable resident characteristics...

BACKGROUND: The Multiple Mini-Interview (MMI) mostly uses 'Situational' Questions (SQs) as an interview format within a station, rather than 'Past-Behavioural' Questions (PBQs), which are most frequently adopted in traditional single-station personal interviews (SSPIs) for non-medical and medical selection. This study investigated reliability and acceptability of the postgraduate admissions MMI with PBQ and SQ interview formats within MMI stations. METHODS: Twenty-six Japanese medical graduates, first completed the two-year national obligatory initial postgraduate clinical training programme and then applied to three specialty training programmes - internal medicine, general surgery, and emergency medicine - in a Japanese teaching hospital, where they underwent the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME)-competency-based MMI...

CONTEXT: Multiple mini-interviews (MMIs) have been used by The University of Sydney graduate medical and dental programmes since 2006. In 2011, interviews with international candidates were conducted using Skype (iMMI), whereas interviews with local candidates were conducted in person. We determined whether the MMI scores derived from both methods were comparable. We describe the feasibility, acceptability and cost-effectiveness of the iMMI. METHODS: We compared 2011 international student internet-based iMMI results with data from 2009 international student MMIs and 2011 local student MMIs...

BACKGROUND: The Multiple Mini-Interview (MMI) is useful in selecting undergraduate medical trainees. Postgraduate applicant pools have smaller numbers of more homogeneous candidates that must be actively recruited while being assessed. This paper reports on the MMI's use in assessing residency candidates. METHOD: Canadian and international medical graduates to three residency programs--obstetrics-gynecology and pediatrics (McMaster University) and internal medicine (University of Alberta)--underwent the MMI for residency selection (n = 484) in 2008 and 2009...

CONTEXT: The multiple mini-interview (MMI) was used to measure professionalism in international medical graduate (IMG) applicants for family medicine residency in Alberta for positions accessed through the Alberta International Medical Graduate (AIMG) Program. This paper assesses the evidence for the MMI's reliability and validity in this context. METHODS: A group of 71 IMGs participated in our 12-station MMI designed to assess professionalism competency. A 10-point scale evaluated applicants on ability to address the objectives of the situation, interpersonal skills, suitability for a residency and for family medicine, and overall performance...

CONTEXT: Multiple mini-interviews (MMIs) are increasingly used in high-stakes medical school selection. Yet there is little published research about participants' experiences and understandings of the process. We report the findings from an international qualitative study on candidate and interviewer experiences of the MMI for entry into a graduate-entry medical school. METHODS: Qualitative data from six interviewer focus groups and 442 candidate and 75 interviewer surveys were analysed using framework analysis...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: This study describes and assesses the acceptability of the multiple mini interview (MMI) to both international medical graduate (IMG) applicants to family medicine residency training in Alberta, Canada, and also interviewers for Alberta's International Medical Graduate Program (AIMGP), an Alberta Health and Wellness government initiative designed to help integrate IMGs into Canadian residency training. IMGs are physicians who completed undergraduate medical education outside of Canada and the United States...

CONTEXT: We wished to determine which factors are important in ensuring interviewers are able to make reliable and valid decisions about the non-cognitive characteristics of candidates when selecting candidates for entry into a graduate-entry medical programme using the multiple mini-interview (MMI). METHODS: Data came from a high-stakes admissions procedure. Content validity was assured by using a framework based on international criteria for sampling the behaviours expected of entry-level students...

OBJECTIVES: To assess candidates' and interviewers' perceptions of the use of a multiple mini-interview (MMI) for selection of senior house officers (SHOs) to a UK regional paediatric training programme. METHODS: Both candidates and interviewers completed anonymous questionnaires (comprising 16 and 25 questions, respectively). Demographic data were recorded for both groups. Data were analysed by frequencies; using Mann-Whitney and Kruskall-Wallis tests for comparisons; and Cronbach's alpha for internal consistency within the data...
