Personal Tutorial 1 – Structuring Your Response: The first personal tutorial held between the candidate and tutor will focus on structuring a response to an interview question or scenario. This is a vital first step to preparing for the medical school interview and this must be understood prior to progressing to the competencies tutorials.
Personal Tutorial 2 – Core Competencies 1: Each core competencies session focuses on scenarios/interview questions relevant to the specific competencies assessed by the candidate’s school of interview (where this is known). Where the school is unknown, universal competencies will be discussed and addressed.
Personal Tutorial 3 – Working through scenarios: After specifically addressing the core competencies, candidates are given the opportunity to further practice their interview skills with their tutor.
Personal Tutorial 4 – Summative Assessment: Summative assessment is conducted via a complete MMI lasting 45 minutes. The MMI is then discussed with feedback given to the candidate regarding their performance, and areas of improvement that require attention prior to their formal interview.
