It depends upon what you may have that would be regarded as supplementary to your application.
I will be bringing along letters showing my class rank (wasn't available at the time of MSPE writing), awards that I had in medical school, research grants that I had, and other stuff if you get the opportunity to show off - e.g. I have a few journal covers that featured my research, so I have the covers to show.
In other words - documents that support aspects of your application that you couldn't elaborate on (for whatever reason) or that emerged after submitting your application.
For others who have research published in institution journals or not available on PubMed, it would be a good idea to bring a paper reprint with you. Likewise with poster presentations if that's all the research you have - it would be a good idea to have a letter-size page of your poster available.
Finally, I will be bringing some unpublished data with me for one of my interviews - it's for a Clinical Scientist Training Program within internal medicine. I'm interviewing specifically with faculty who are in the same line of research that I am proposing to do. The opportunity may arise where I can show them preliminary data to support my goals / hypotheses.
