What is the MMI?

Developed by the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University, the MMI (Multiple Mini Interview system) is a proven system for reliably assessing the soft skills of candidates in the academic, public, and corporate sectors.

In 2002, the Michael G. DeGroote School of Medicine at McMaster University began developing the Multiple Mini-Interview (MMI) system, to address two widely recognized problems. First, it had been shown that traditional interview formats or simulations of educational situations do not accurately predict performance in medical school. Secondly, when a licensing or regulatory body reviews the performance of a physician subsequent to patient complaints, the most frequent issues of concern are those of the non-cognitive skills, such as interpersonal skills, professionalism, and ethical/moral judgment.  The MMI was thus developed to assess applicants on the basis of their soft skills – communication, team work, critical thinking, ethical decision making, interpersonal relations, professionalism and empathy.

In 2007, collaborators who saw the potential of the MMI, along with McMaster’s Industry Liaison Office combined their efforts to form a spin-off company to bring the MMI to professional schools and corporations around to world.   In 2008, Prospecthr MMI (formerly known as ProFitHR) acquired the MMI license from McMaster University and has since provided licenses to Tier 1 medical, pharmacy, dental, nursing and veterinary schools in Canada, the U.S., Europe, the Middle East, the Far East, Australia, as well as public sector organizations.

The company is located at McMaster’s Innovation Park in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.
