Skip to 0 minutes and 6 seconds There are thousands of us involved in candidate selection, whether it be doctors, nurses, midwives, allied health professionals, vets, and dentists, both at post-registration or pre-registration levels and graduate and undergraduate levels. So many of us are tasked with selecting the right candidates to train to be our future health care professionals. And now most programmes no longer select based on cognitive ability alone. Selection processes also include interviews. These are designed to assess whether candidates who meet the academic entry requirements of programmes can also demonstrate they have the values and attributes so vital to caring professions. And one type of interview is multiple mini interviews, or MMIs. The use of MMIs has risen exponentially over the past 10 years.

And I am Alison Callwood. And together, we have over 20 years experience of MMI design and use. On the course, you will learn what an MMI is, what an effective MMI looks like, and how they can be best delivered. By the end of this course, you should feel confident and prepared to identify your institution’s needs and scope for running MMIs, blue print the values and attributes that are important and required for your field of study, develop robust MMIs ready for use, and evaluate and reflect on your preparedness for running MMIs and your developing expertise.
Skip to 1 minute and 50 seconds We’ve gathered together published evidence, developed best practise guidelines, and used our own experiences– including the pitfalls that we’ve fallen into– to build this resource bank. We wanted to share our experiences and engage with others around the world, so that we can take MMIs forward in the best way that we can. We look forward to working with you over the next three weeks and beyond, so that together we can enhance candidate selection processes using MMIs. We’ll see you on the course.
