On Friday we were delighted to host Lizzie Alexander, a fourth year medical student from the University of Exeter, who delivered an interactive workshop for our medical applicants. Lizzie put the students through their paces as they tackled a series of fast paced interviews which represented the type of interviews used at many medical schools across the UK, referred to as Mini Multiple Interviews (MMIs).

MMIs are a gruelling 2 hours of short, intensive interviews where students rotate between interviewers who are looking for specific skills or asking challenging questions.

Lizzie’s circuit included a role-play scenario and an ethical debate about the future of the NHS.

The students gained invaluable experience which will stand them in good stead when they go to face their own MMIs.

We would like to thank Lizzie for giving up her time to organise and run such an inspiring event.
