Diversity First Look Event

Dear Future MedCat,

Congratulations on your interview invitation to the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine! You have been invited to interview at Cincinnati Medicine because you are a highly competitive applicant and we are eager to introduce you to all that Cincinnati has to offer you on your path to becoming a physician. In addition to your interview, you have been invited to attend our Diversity First Look program, a unique virtual experience designed to showcase the supportive diversity and inclusion programs offered by Cincinnati's Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. The Diversity First Look event will occur prior to your interview day and are outlined in the email attachment you received upon being invited to interview. Please also be aware that the details of your subsequent interview day are found on your MedOneStop status page.

Please refer to the invitation letter sent to you by the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for your First Look and interview day details. The First Look Event is NOT the same as an interview day (for details of your interview day, go to your MedOneStop status page). Additional general information and tips about interviewing with Cincinnati Medicine can also be found here.

Interview Format

Cincinnati Medicine uses the Multiple Mini Interview (MMI). Interviews will be conducted virtually this year. The MMI is a series of eight brief interview "stations" that are centered on a scenario.  Each station has its own interviewer (rater); consequently, you will be evaluated by eight different individuals.  MMI scenarios focus on issues such as communication, ethics, critical thinking, teamwork and personal attributes. Information regarding the MMI can be found online and through our MMI tab.  You will receive an extensive overview about the MMI process on your interview day prior to completing the MMI. You may also find details of our MMI.

Virtual Interview Tips

Applicants should dress in professional/business attire, which typically includes a suit coat. They should also identify a quiet place with stable and strong internet connection. Ideally, this area would be well lit and be characterized by a largely blank background. In addition, no one should be in that space during your interview experience.

Life in Cincinnati

Our City is as rich in history as it is vibrant! As the city that established the second oldest public medical school in the nation, we have always been characterized by a deep desire to grow, innovate, and reinvent. Proof of that orientation is evident by Cincinnati's routine ranking (and only Ohio City included) among this region's top attractions with respect to our historical character, local food scene, walkability, and cultural & arts experiences. Even though your interview with Cincinnati Medicine isn't yet allowing you to visit our beloved city, we hope to give you a quick taste with the following videos... Enjoy!
