Volunteer Opportunities

Take part in our selection process

Would you like to take part in the important process of interviewing applicants for medical school? At Dalhousie Medical School, we use the Multi-Mini-Interview (MMI) format as part of our assessment of applicants, and you can help us.

How it works

During the MMI, medical school applicants rotate through 10 different stations, each with a different scenario and interviewer. This provides an opportunity for the applicant to demonstrate skills like communication, critical thinking and problem solving. It also allows them to share how their life experiences have directed and prepared them for the field of medicine.

How to be an interviewer

We have a lot of applicants, so we need a lot of interviewers. No previous experience is necessary. Interviewers are required to attend a mandatory workshop for training on the process and what their specific responsibilities will be.

Interviewers are asked to disclose any potential conflict or bias prior to participating, for example, if you have a relative or friend applying to medical school at Dalhousie for this year.

Interested in taking part in the selection process?

Let us know by contacting medicine.admissions@dal.ca. We'll be looking for interviewers to be available during the MMI weekend each year.
