Summary of "The Multiple Mini-Interview: A Possible Solution to Problems Associated with the Interview Processes for a Selected Entry Allied Health Program."

Concerns have been raised about the effectiveness of traditional semi-structured interviews in selected entry allied health programs in terms of whether they give applicants the best opportunity to demonstrate their personal qualities and whether the process itself is overly intimidating and impersonal. This in turn raises questions about the reliability and validity of interviews. In this study, a possible alternative process was examined, the multiple mini-interview (MMI). The study investigated the MMI's perceived acceptability for use by a speech-language pathology program.
