Interview Day

Qualified applicants will be invited for an on-campus interview after a thorough review by our Admissions Committees.

The Twin Cities Interview Day Experience

The interview day experience on the Twin Cities campus is a virtual experience that takes place across two half days via Zoom where our hope is you will walk away having experienced time with our staff, faculty, students, and community.

You will be interviewing under the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) Program. The MMI is a circuit exercise, where applicants are presented scenarios that will measure non-cognitive characteristics such as communication skills, professionalism, ethical decision making and moral behavior.

Applicants will go through a 10 station circuit exercise (8 evaluated stations and 2 rest stations). The stations will be 7 minutes in length with 4 minutes in between each station. Prior to beginning the MMI, each applicant will have 1 20-minute freeform recruitment conversation, which is a condensed version of the traditional one-on-one interview. This evaluated interaction allows you to meet with a member of our medical school community, where you will be asked some open-ended structured questions and you will also have the opportunity to learn more about the medical school community.
