Welcome to ACE’s 2023 Medicine Interview Program
Preparing for University Medicine Interviews can be a daunting task, and with the added pressure of your HSC exams, this is the last thing you want to be worrying about. At ACE, we support our students to get fully prepared for their interviews through an immersive program of teaching seminars and mock interviews. Over the years we have refined the course to maximise your confidence and give you valuable insights into the interview process.
How the ACE Medicine Interview Program works
As part of gaining entry into many Medical Schools in Australia, you will need to be successful in at least one interview. These Interviews vary slightly across universities, however there are 2 main types that you will come across:
For universities such as UNSW and James Cook University, you should expect to face a Semi-Structured Interview or “SSI”
For universities such as WSU, CSU and University of Newcastle, you can expect to participate in a Multiple Mini Interviews, or “MMI”, style of interview
How will ACE help me to prepare for these interviews?
Our teaching course is designed to apply to all students seeking entry to Medicine, regardless of the universities you are applying to. This component of the course prepares students with an understanding of how Medicine Interviews are conducted and starts to build and refine how you can formulate unique and high quality responses to commonly asked interview questions. To best assist students for their interviews, our teaching program will encompass the following components:
Navigating MMI and SSI-style Interviews
Students will attend a two-day teaching workshop for guidance on their MMI-style and SSI-style Interviews. These are taught by experienced tutors who have been through the interview process themselves, and will help students hone in their skills in formulating high quality responses to any interview question.
Students will receive a workbook which aids them to formulate approaches to answering station-based and personal interview questions.
The workshop each day will be 6.5 hours from 10am – 4:30pm
Option 1: Wednesday 8th November AND Friday 10th November from 10am – 4:30pm
Option 2: Thursday 9th November AND Sunday 12th November from 10am – 4:30pm
Option 1: Wednesday 8th November AND Friday 10th November from 10am - 4:30pm
Option 2: Thursday 9th November AND Sunday 12th November from 10am - 4:30pm
BONUS: Interview Experience Seminars – University Specific
If you are eager and interested in learning about what each university may put you against in this year’s interviews, these seminars are perfect for you!
