The Medic Mile (MM) is a physical ability test for EMTs and Paramedics. It is designed to evaluate entry
level medic candidates on the essential physical capabilities required to satisfactorily perform their job
duties. MM is based on decades of research in physical ability testing and extensive job analysis data
collected from various departments.
The MM consists of 8 events designed to simulate critical, physically demanding tasks faced by medics during
an emergency. Each event has a separate time limit, and the test overall lasts approximately 20 minutes.
For more information about the MM and to prepare yourself for this test, we strongly recommend that you read the
Candidate Orientation Guide and view the
