So will you have to experience the MMI? There’s a good chance. In the mid aughts, Canadian schools started to implement the MMI, and now, only one Canadian school has not migrated to the format. American schools - not quite as progressive as their Canadian brethren - began to implement the format a few years later, and we’re up to a grand total of 27 allopathic schools that use either the MMI or a hybrid format. That’s about one out of every five med schools, so if you’re applying to these schools, you should prepare yourself for the MMI.

We have compiled a list of every school that offers the MMI, double checking the list against each school’s website where possible (not all medical school websites tell you the details of their interview day). We also used the experience of previous students at Passport Admissions as confirmation. Medical schools do occasionally switch interview format from time to time, so if you know of an additional school we need to add, please include it in the comments below.
