DENTAL INTERVIEW COURSE

Because First Impressions Count.

From tackling ethical dilemmas in the interview to testing manual dexterity, we bring to you a 16 station half-day intensive Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) preparation course run by experienced dental and medical students from across the North West.

Course Outline

Priced at £115, our course is amongst the cheapest in the country offering you the best value for your money. Whilst medical students also participate in this course, we use unique stations for dentistry or dental hygiene.

1.

HALF-DAY COURSE

Our courses run in the morning or afternoon over a range of weekends from November - February each application cycle. Courses are held in hospitals or local schools. Over 10 staff help deliver each course. With our course, you will gain practice in meeting and talking to interviewers.

2.

16 MMI STATIONS

 On the day, you move through an 8-station circuit with a fellow dental student that you will pass through twice. You will participate on one occasion and observe on the next station. Stations range from ethics to contemporary dental affairs to manual dexterity. Each station is quality controlled by doctors and past interviewers.

3.

10 MINUTE STATIONS

At each station, you will have

- 1 minute: to read the station blurb

- 6 minutes: to attempt the station

- 3 minutes: verbal and written feedback

If you have a confirmed interview, we can tailor the station to question themes asked by that university*.

BESPOKE FEEDBACK

Our interviewers are all medical/dental students or doctors, they provide detailed verbal and physical feedback on all elements of your interview performance. All feedback is documented in your coursebook so you can refer to it again.

BONUS LECTURE

At the start of the day, a doctor or senior medical/dental student talks to you about the common pitfalls in the MMI. Our senior lecturer also discusses how to tackle the most difficult scenarios such as breaking bad news, the angry relative and what to do if a station goes pear-shaped.
