Description:
Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) is a new selection tool for medical school applicants. Developed at McMaster University in 2004 it comprises a series of interview stations designed to measure performance across a range of competencies including communication skills, team work, and ethical reasoning. In September 2012, 109 First Year Medical students underwent the MMI. It consisted of 10 stations. The median total score, out of 150, was 100 (min 63, max 129). Cronbach Alphas for the 10 individual stations range from 0.74 to 0.80.Overall Cronbach Alpha of MMI items was 0.78. Staff and student feedback was positive. The outline cost per student was estimated at 145. This study demonstrates that it is feasible to hold a MMI with acceptable levels of reliability and stakeholder approval in an Irish setting. Further work is ongoing to establish the concurrent and predictive validity of MMI in this cohort of medical students.
