The interview assesses an applicant's ability to successfully complete the program and become an effective naturopathic doctor. Applicants are chosen for interviews based on their academic performance.

Interviews are conducted at CCNM. The personal interview lasts approximately 45 minutes. The interview team consists of one faculty member and one student. There are three components to the interview:

  1. several vignettes/scenarios with applicable questions (for which no prior medical knowledge is required)
  2. additional questions related to motivation and familiarity with naturopathic medicine
  3. an opportunity for open dialogue

Applicants will be assessed on their communication skills, committment to naturopathic medicine and integrity.
