Multiple Mini Interviews

All Allied Health programs have Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI) as part of their admission process.


In an MMI, applicants will complete a 1.5 hour circuit of approximately eight, 10-minute mini-interview stations, rotating from station to station. At each station, candidates will be presented with a ‘scenario’ or question. They will then have the opportunity to discuss with an interviewer before proceeding to the next station.

MMI utilizes multiple stations where each station is comprised of a scenario designed to evaluate a candidate’s core traits/competencies critical to success in health care professions. This includes competencies such as problem solving, critical thinking, teamwork, responsibility, ethical and moral judgement, self-awareness, conflict resolution and management skills. Applicants have essentially 7 to 8 minutes to respond. Once completed, the interviewer rates the applicant in predetermined areas using a rubric and rating scale. In the end, the scores from all stations are totaled for an overall score for each applicant. Applicants are then ranked accordingly and offered a seat in the program.

Applicants who have applied to more than one AHS program will only participate in one Multiple Mini Interview session.


As in any examination process, the actual scenarios will remain confidential. Here is one example.
Recently, the Prime Minister of Canada raised the issue of deterrent fees (a small charge, say $10, which everyone who initiates a visit to a health professional would have to pay at the first contact) as a way to control health care costs. The assumption is that this will deter people from visiting their doctor for unnecessary reasons.
Consider the broad implications of this policy for health and health care costs. For example, do you think the approach will save health care costs? At what expense?
Discuss this issue with the interviewer.
