Multiple Mini Interview General Information

We will divide you into groups.  Each group is numbered and it is important that you remain with your group throughout the entire day as interviews are carefully timed.  Arrive on time but not too far in advance to avoid confusion on this very busy day.  Please remember, you must bring photo ID to be admitted to the MMI. 

When you arrive at registration present your ID and we will simply check your name off the list, provide you with your name tag, have you sign the consent forms and introduce you to your team leaders who will guide your group through the MMI day.

In addition to the MMI, applicants may participate in a 1/2 hour tour of the school and attend a 1/2 hour presentation with a video created by the first year students of UofC MD program.  During the presentation you will have a chance to meet the  Director of Admissions and ask questions about the program.

Applicants invited for interview may review sample MMI questions prior to the interview date. Please click here to access the sample MMI questions.
