Modified Personal Interview Strategy

MedApplications™

The Modified Personal Interview (MPI) has become the standard medical school interview format at the University of Toronto medical school since the 2013-2014 medical school admissions cycle. The Modified Personal Interview (MPI) originated from the primary goal of getting to know pre-medical candidates more effectively in a confined time slot. The Modified Personal Interview (MPI) has quickly gained popularity as a hybrid between the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) and the traditional Panel Interview which has been commonplace in medical schools for decades.

The focus of the Modified Personal Interview (MPI) is to evaluate key medical competencies which usually align with the well described CanMEDS roles. The Modified Personal Interview (MPI) focuses on questions which try to elicit how you as a future medical student and medical doctor will behave in certain scenarios. Candidates are encouraged to highlight elements from their own experiences and are prompted to do so by The Modified Personal Interview (MPI) questions.

Modified Personal Interview Stations

MedApplications™

Modified Personal Interview (MPI) Stations are arrange as four independent interviewers. Candidates engage with a single interviewer. Medical interviewers include: medical faculty, 3rd and 4th year medical students or other health care professionals involved in medical school admissions.
As a hybrid format, the Modified Personal Interview (MPI) provides structured questioning as well as opportunities for flowing conversation. Published data regarding the Modified Personal Interview (MPI) points to a combination of assessment of core CanMEDS roles, in addition to softer cognitive skills which include: communication, collaboration, critical thinking and professionalism.

Assessing maturity is also a key component in the Modified Personal Interview (MPI). The University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine has published very little data regarding constantly shifting Modified Personal Interview (MPI) format. Our Toronto-based medical doctors keep up to date with the most current trends related to the Modified Personal Interview (MPI).

In a publication put out by the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine and the University of Toronto’s Leadership Education and Development Program (LEAD) in 2012, we have gained some insight into the nuances of the Modified Personal Interview (MPI). Published in Academic Medicine (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22914517) , the LEAD initiative set out a goal to improve the medical school interview process. This study examined the reliability and resource demands of the Modified Personal Interview (MPI). In 2010-2011, LEAD candidates were subjected to four brief, 10-12-minute independent Modified Personal Interview (MPI) stations, each with a different reviewer.

The Modified Personal Interview (MPI) questions focused on: leadership attributes, among other competencies, and were evaluated on a likert scale.  Of the 16 candidates that applied, 10 were included in the study. The results of the study showed a high reliability between application score and Modified Personal Interview (MPI) scores. Further, the Modified Personal Interview (MPI) was considered a cost effective format to roll out to all medical institutions. In the review of the 2013-2014 Modified Personal Interview (MPI) cycle at the University of Toronto Faculty of Medicine, Modified Personal Interview (MPI) reliability was found to 0.56, indicated a reasonable correlation to medical school applications. In total, 160 medical interviewers were required to interview 600 University of Toronto medical school candidates. It was also shown that Modified Personal Interview (MPI) performance correlated with first year OSCE performance in medical student clinical skills evaluation.
