Entry interviews

As part of your application for the Doctor of Medicine, you may be invited to an entry interview.

We use multiple mini-interviews (MMIs) to assess your personal qualities and values.

The qualities we assess will include your:

  • kindness and compassion
  • integrity
  • adaptability
  • verbal communication skills.

The MMI process

The MMI format consists of several interview stations. You'll meet with a different assessor at each station. Each assessor will give you a score that will contribute to your overall admissions rank.

MMIs are held via video conferencing. To participate, you'll need a PC/Mac computer, or mobile device such as a tablet. Your device must have:

  • speakers
  • microphone
  • moveable webcam
  • stable internet connection.

View the Doctor of Medicine pre-interview briefing pack (PDF, 216.7 KB) for further information about the MMIs and requirements you must comply with. 

If we select you for an interview, we'll send you an email with additional information including your video conferencing link. You should receive this one to 2 weeks before the day of your interview. Check your emails regularly, including your junk mailbox.

Our staff will also conduct an online briefing session before the MMIs. This is not compulsory but we highly recommended you attend as you'll have the opportunity to ask any questions. This session won't be recorded.

Reasonable adjustments

The UQ Medical School fosters a culture of inclusivity and equivalent opportunities to access education in medicine. Enabling effective inclusion requires a collaborative effort by applicants and the Medical School. We ask all applicants to take the time to read the Medical Deans Inclusive Medical Education Guidelines (PDF 1,115 KB).

Some minor reasonable adjustments may be considered for your MMI if you have a disability or medical condition. You must apply for reasonable adjustments in advance of the schedule interview, as reasonable adjustments will not accommodated on the day without prior approval. Contact the Faculty of Medicine for further information.
