Multiple Mini Interview workshop and practice session

Multiple Mini Interview workshop and practice session

Monday, Oct. 3
2:30 pm – 4:30 pm
University Student Commons, Virginia Rooms B,C,D
Registration required

Increasingly, healthcare professional programs utilize the Multiple Mini Interview as a part of the admission process. A Multiple Mini Interview is like speed dating, but with a whole lot more on the line. You have five to ten minutes to impress your interviewer while you answer a question or respond to a scenario. The process repeats several more times until you have interviewed with eight to ten different people in under 90 minutes!

During the workshop, Career Services will discuss MMI success strategies and then you’ll practice the MMI with Pre-Professional Health Advisors and faculty and staff.

Pre-registration is required and space is limited to 50 participants. Professional dress is strongly recommend. For more information, contact VCU Career Services at careers@vcu.edu or 804-828-1645.
