Mock Multiple Mini-Interview (MMI)
The University of Arizona College of Medicine Offices of Admissions and Diversity and Inclusion offer Mock Multiple Mini-Interview (MMI) workshop for pre-health students who are currently applying to medical school.
The Mock MMI is a one-day experience designed to educate and inform pre-health college students of the interview process through 1) presentation of materials and a panel discussion, and 2) simulating the ‘interview’ that most medical schools require as part of their admission process. After participating in the workshop, students will receive written feedback and helpful advice from volunteer interviewers.
The Mock MMI workshop is offered in the month of August, prior to medical school admissions interview. We encourage pre-health students planning to apply to medical school for the current application cycle to apply to participate in the Mock MMI.
The 2021 Virtual Mock MMI Workshop is August 20th, 2021. The application will open July 1st at 12:00 a.m. and will close at 11:59 p.m. on August 1st, 2021.
