Moon Prep Is Your Partner
Many colleges, medical schools, and internships require interviews prior to admission into their programs. Traditional interviews can be conducted as one-on-one, group, or panel. The questions in these types of interviews are to learn more about your interests and to see if your values align with that of the program. Similar to studying for your classes, interviews can be studied for and practiced. Interview prep provides you the opportunity to practice questions that are typically asked in a variety of interviews. This service not only prepares you for your desired program, but also polishes your interviewing skills for the future.
Multiple Mini Interview (MMI)
MMI is an increasingly popular interview format in medical schools and BS/MD programs. MMI typically consists of different interview stations, with each station posing a different question or scenario. Students are allotted a few minutes to prepare and deliver their answer before moving on to the next station. The purpose of MMI is to assess communication, teamwork, ethics, and professionalism, all of which are part of the core competencies of being a physician.
MMI topics include traditional interview questions, ethical scenarios, current events, problem-solving, and role-playing. The types of questions can vary from program to program. Because MMI evaluates candidates’ interpersonal and critical thinking skills, MMI interview prep involves practicing a variety of questions and scenarios to articulate a rational answer. Although it is difficult to prepare for this type of interview, Moon Prep counselors can help you understand what the question is asking and structure thoughtful answers for various types of questions.
Residency Interview Prep
Residency interviews remain the last hurdle in landing your dream residency. It can make a difference in how residency programs directors perceive your interest in the program and ultimately rank you during the Match process.
Residency interview prep can aid in polishing your answers to convey your interest in the program and dedication to the specialty. Practicing through mock interviews and getting feedback from experienced interviewers can help you feel more confident in your answers on the residency interview trail.
