Top tips for MMIs
I’ve created a list of my top tips for MMI style interviews, alongside discussing common questions and key topics that are often asked....
Helping students apply for and excel in medicine
As a current junior doctor I can offer a unique perspective on medical school applications and medical school exams. I know what it’s like to be in your shoes (after all, I was in them not too long ago!) whilst having the insight and experience of working in the NHS alongside other doctors and healthcare professionals on a daily basis.
Mentoring and tutoring tailored to meet your needs. Covering topics such as the skills and attributes required to be a doctor to ways to boost your application and stand out from the crowd. Understanding how a career in medical school could be shaped for you is often a much more valuable experience than a day spent shadowing one medical professional.
From MMIs to panel based interviews, I can help you prepare for all styles and run personalised practice interviews with detailed feedback. I interviewed at Oxford (panel, traditional), Bristol (MMIs), Nottingham (MMIs) and Newcastle (panel). I also assisted in organising, running and interviewing at the Bristol interviews for three years. This gives me great insight into how to maximise your opportunities.
A collaborative approach to ensuring that your personal statement reflects your passion for this career and addresses the key skills and attributes that medical schools are looking for.
Communication skills, history taking, examination techniques, breaking bad news and explaining diagnoses are just a few of the topics that can be covered as part of OSCE preparation. Explore scenarios written by those with personal and recent experience of OSCEs from a range of medical schools. Receive detailed, personal and constructive feedback to get you feeling confident in your abilities to show your full potential at OSCEs!
