Medical Students

Admissions Committee Seeking MMI Volunteers

The admissions committee is seeking volunteers to interview prospective medical students for the 2014-2015 school year.

During the MMI, applicants participate in a series of six- to eight-minute conversations with up to eight volunteer interviewers.

Faculty and staff with a background in hiring, judging character, working in teams, management and leadership are especially appropriate for the interview process. Interviewers cannot have a first-degree relative, or they themselves, be applying to medical school in the next three years.

Students will be interviewed every other week until March 26. Training is required.
