Modified Personal Interview (MPI)

  • The virtual MPI (vMPI), an adapted version of the traditional MPIs.
  • The MPI consists of 4 independent interviews assessed by four different interviewers. Each station is only 5 minutes and are completed asynchronously.
  • Interviewers are closely connected to U of T’s medical community and may include physicians, medical students, residents, health professionals and community members.
  • Each interview is approximately 12 minutes in length with MMI-style questions (ethical, situational, policy, personal)
  • Interviews were virtual in 2021, no information has been given yet for 2022

I'm hoping to get into Medical School, however, I've been unsuccessful numerous times. I'm really starting to lose hope of becoming a doctor. Do you have any words of wisdom for someone like me?

I have somewhat of a non-traditional background in applying to medical school. I'm starting to see that term and that adjective thrown around quite a bit to be non-traditional. What are your opinions on non-traditional applicants and do you have any words of wisdom for someone like me?
