JTT has provided students with new and very effective resources for MMI and I found it easier to construct my answers and improved the overall answer significantly. Thank you so much!

“Initially, I had great doubts about my ability to succeed in the interviews; it was by far my weakest area. Through Justin’s tutoring, I was able to develop the confidence and skills to excel in the interviews and gain a place in the medical school. His tutoring not only helped with the interviews, but helped me learn valuable communication skills for everyday and professional life.”

– Sally Park, 2015

“Very well prepared and straight to the point. The MMI simulation was extremely helpful and I am so glad I purchased it. I know what I need to improve on and how much I need to prepare.”

– Zaynah Khan, 2018

“He has a valuable repertoire of drills and techniques that no other tutors offers. Without Justin’s help, I don’t think my interview would be as much of a breeze as it was. Not only does he deliver information in simple and comprehensive manner, but he also makes a great deal of effort to answer questions in his own private time, showing genuine care about his students. Highly highly recommended”

– Victoria Cai, 2016

“JTT’s interview course has actually exceeded my expectations. The guidebook is also very detailed, but concise… If my younger peers were to ask for interview help, I would recommend them this service.”

– Helen Zheng, 2018

FAQs

The earlier streams give much more time to prepare. If any issues are identified, it’s best to tackle it diligently over weeks than to cram in any change last minute.

It is always advisable to attend early, if possible. Importantly, when you are in the interview, only your habits remain. It takes time to create habits.

On the other hand, the late stream still does give enough time for intensive preparation if the early streams were not possible to attend. As there is usually nothing else to be focused on at that time of the year (after exams), a large amount of preparation is possible in the 3 to 4 weeks between the late stream and the real interview.

For students attending the late stream, we recommend using the online courses throughout the semester to build strong foundations by the time they prepare for the interview. This helps offset any early vs late stream disadvantages.

Coaching sessions are at the end of each workshop day, immediately following the theory part of the workshop.

Further coaching sessions can be purchased if desired.

Upgraded: Compared to 2019, our new 2020 workshops are designed to reduce information overload and optimise preparation.

Upgraded: We noticed that students were forgetting the workshop material and not getting the most out of their coaching. In 2020, we’ve included coaching within the workshop day to immediately consolidate your skills.

Modified: The simulation was modified to increase the realism even further.

Increased spaces: Due to overwhelming demand in 2019, we have increased the number of students we can accept onto our course from 80 to 96.

Upgraded: After strong positive feedback from 2019, our online course has been significantly improved with approximately 3x the content and resources.

Our MMI simulation is the most realistic simulation available. The early stream simulation is held on the first weekend of October, 1 month after the final workshop day. The late stream simulation is approximately 1 to 2 weeks before the real interview (around mid November).

You come dressed and prepared to be interviewed by real doctors and health professionals in the same stations, question styles, and timing as the real interview. You will receive a score and written feedback for every station you sit, as well as a chance to debrief on any issues encountered during the simulation. 

The average satisfaction rating given to our simulation by 200+ previous students is 99.6%. We have never received a rating below 90%. Compared to other simulations offered by student groups, clubs, and other companies, 100% of our students have reported that ours is the most realistic, challenging, and professional.

Please note: Our simulation always sells out. It is rare for us to have any simulation seats left after August. The seats are limited to 96 and it is rare for more than one or two people to be accepted from the waiting list (due to students being unable to attend on the day last-minute).

Experience, design, and approach.

Experience
The MMI course was designed and is run by Dr Justin Sung directly, New Zealand’s most experienced interview coach. This experience allows him to diagnose problem areas highly efficiently, while teaching the structure and theory much more simply than conventional approaches to interiew.

Design
We focus on achieving the best outcome, rather than just whatever people perceive as being worth the money. While most other preparation options are one-off workshops or resources, our course is a preparatory experience consisting of a 2-day workshop, comprehensive guidebook, question bank, small group coaching, online resources, and a simulation.

Approach
Students appreciate our pragmatic and simple approach to interview. Our interview strategies are very flexible and have a strong focus on being natural and genuine. Most of our students prefer this genuine-focused approach to other more rigid interview strategies, which is reflected in our very positive testimonials.

The interview ranking is based on:

  1. Four core GPA
  2. UCAT

By the end of semester 1, you will have an idea of your best possible core GPA, since 3 of the 4 core papers are completed by then. Similarly the UCAT score is generally available by the end of July.

This means that despite not having a definitive MEDSCI 142 score, you will know whether you are likely to get an interview offer. While the decision to purchase early is not necessary, it is advised and wise to, because our courses usually sell out before the second semester.

If you have special circumstances that require a more intensive or individualised coaching solution, we have a limited number of private students that we are able to accept.

As this is usually a high-demand service, it is subject to availability. If you are interested, please email info@jttmed.com

Our interview coaches are medical students or doctors with training and experience in coaching for MMI. Each coach is trained in our unique approach and how to give the most effective feedback.

This unique feedback and training style is what makes our coaching services so popular. Along with the simulation, our coaches are consistently rated as one of the most high-value aspects of the course.

After four years of experimentation, we have definitively concluded that two- or three-on-one is the ideal ratio for interview coaching. This is superior to one-on-one for a few reasons:

  1. One-on-one continuous interview training is very tiring for the student.
  2. The diversity of ideas and opinions is one of the most important element of good interview preparation. This is absent in one-on-one.
  3. Small groups allow students to train the ability to think like a listening interviewer, which is a beneficial perspective to unlock.
  4. Sessions are usually more enjoyable in small groups, which increases learning, productivity and sustainability.
  5. Small groups promote peer practice and gives an opportunity for us to refine the peer practice techniques, which form the bulk of a student’s total preparation time.

Of course not. But it guarantees the simplest, most efficiency-focused, most-genuine approach to interview available.
