    Sask MMI

    Hey @hellothere123, I'm not fully aware about the details for the Sask MMI specifically. However, I can give you some general advice and and information on some resources I found helpful for my MMI. https://multipleminiinterview.com (has some free sample MMI questions to get you started!) YouTube channels: CourseGrinder (I would recommend you watch a few of these videos to get an idea of how to respond and then for the rest of his videos, I would recommend you look at the question, then pause, answer it VERBALLY and RECORD yourself (I know, kind of cringy but oh well), and then look at how he responded and take note of your weaknesses (or better yet, get someone else a friend/ family member to critique you). The Medical Method (There are several sit down one-on-one proper MMI style videos on his channel, you can use the same method as above with these videos but just keep in mind that some of the policy type questions MAY be out of scope for Dentistry) Kharma Medic (There is a playlist of MMI Questions you can explore. In particular, I found the following videos really helpful): Medicine MMI: What is your biggest weakness & strength? | KharmaMedic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-DY44CZ7U8&frags=pl%2Cwn Medicine MMI: Ethical Dilemma Station (kidney transplant) PART I https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guyYpi09MMM&frags=pl%2Cwn Medicine MMI: Ethical Dilemma (kidney transplant) PART II https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lwm-HecpvqM&frags=pl%2Cwn Medicine MMI: How to Break Bad News (role play station) | KharmaMedic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JFMnj4pXsqU&frags=pl%2Cwn Ali Abdaal ("How to answer Medical Ethics interview questions " <-- This video really helped me for the CASPer and since CASPer and MMI are pretty much the same, I think it is a good video to watch and understand the basics of the 4 principles of medical ethics) Video on How to deliver bad news: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_uOS7hfKkVI&list=WL&index=38&t=0s Video on How to deal with angry actors: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eboLyQ-k6P8 Many people suggest reading Doing Right. In my opinion, it is quite a lengthy read and although it does provide you with great insight on medical ethics and how to deal with specific patient encounters, I think "BeMo's Ultimate Guide to Multiple Mini Interview" provides you with MUCH more practical information and you can apply the techniques almost immediately. It was 100% worth the buy. PS, it is not very expensive (https://www.amazon.com/BeMos-Ultimate-Guide-Multiple-Interview/dp/1729763367) Not sponsored/ affiliated with BeMo, for anyone wondering. Although I do agree, there are fewer MMI resources geared towards Dent relative to Med, I still think there are some that are really beneficial. If you have any other questions or are looking for more advice, don't hesitate to reach out and PM me. Good luck!
  2. For the General Chemistry section on the DAT, I would recommend you watch Chad’s videos on Youtube. That way you are still reviewing the material without having to expend a ton on mental energy. Good luck.
  3. Hey @periodent What do you specifically struggle with? I would say the key is to really hone in on what your weaknesses are and then tackle them one by one. It is good to have a general idea of what "good interview skills" are but I think what will truly help you get better is making specific tweaks and changes to your current interview style.
