Introduction:A multiple-mini interview (MMI) is a type of structured interview, which may assess many non-cognitive domains in residency applicants. There are few studies on MMI during the emergency medicine (EM) residency admissions process in the United States. We sought to determine the strengths, weaknesses, and acceptability of a pilot MMI for EM residency admissions. Methods:We piloted a five-station MMI with nine residency applicants. Following the MMI, we surveyed all participants, using 15 open- and closed-ended questions. Using grounded theory analysis, we coded the responses to the post-intervention survey to uncover the strengths and weaknesses of the MMI for EM residency admissions. Results:All nine students completed the survey. A positive theme that emerged from the survey was that the MMI was a positive, unexpected experience (all respondents, n=9). Candidates felt they were able to showcase unique talents, which would not be observed during a traditional interview (n=3). A negative theme that emerged from the survey was that the experience was intimidating (n=3). Candidates felt that the MMI left out important aspects of a typical interview day (n=3); such as, time for the candidate to become more familiar with the program. Conclusions:An MMI may be a positive experience for candidates, but may also induce more anxiety. The MMI may omit an important piece of the interview day: an opportunity for the applicants to familiarize themselves with the residency program.
