Let’s continue breaking down some common questions you will experience on the interview trail. Dr. Mike Olson and I will discuss what we think the “question behind the question” is, and what programs are looking for in an answer.

Questions about your behavior. For example:

 

  • Tell me about a stressful patient encounter you had in medical school and how you handled it.
  • Tell me about a time you disagreed with an attending physician and how you handled the situation.
  • Tell me about a time you had to work with someone you didn’t like - what was the outcome?
  • Tell me about the last time you failed at something.

 

 

Questions about your personality. For example:

 

  • Tell me a joke.
  • If you were a plant, what type of plant would you be?
  • Draw a picture of me as a character in your favorite movie.

 

 

Unfortunately that’s all the time we have for today’s show. If today’s topic struck a cord with you and you would like to practice your interviewing skills, drop us a line over at the MatchGurus.com and we will set up a speciality-specific coaching package and mock-interviews designed specifically for you. We still have a few slots open, and interview season is just around the corner.

Let’s continue breaking down some common questions you will experience on the interview trail. Dr. Mike Olson and I will discuss what we think the “question behind the question” is, and what programs are looking for in an answer.

Questions about previous patient cases. For example:

 

  • What was the most interesting surgical procedure you scrubbed on and why?
  • Tell me about your most memorable patient experience.

 

Questions based on ACGME Core Competencies. For example:

 

  • What does professionalism mean to you?
  • Tell me about a time you were able to work in an interdisciplinary team successfully.
  • How familiar are you with evidence-based medicine in decision making?

 

Questions about clinical decision making. For example:

 

  • Are you familiar with the new hypertension guidelines?
  • Tell me what you know about the treatment of COPD exacerbations.
  • If you are paged to the ICU and find an unresponsive patient, what is your first instinct?

In the next three episodes I want to help break down some of the most common questions you will experience on the interview trail, as well as some uncommon and even illegal ones. Dr. Mike Olson and I will discuss what we think the “question behind the question” is, and what programs are looking for in an answer.

In this episode, we will discuss questions about you, questions about your future goals, and questions about the field you are applying to.

Questions about you. For example:

 

  • Tell me a little bit about yourself.
  • Who would you say “you” are?
  • How would your friends describe you?
  • How do you spend your free time?

 

 

Questions about your future goals. For example:

 

  • Why do you want to be an emergency physician?
  • Where do you see yourself in five years?
  • What does the ideal residency look like to you?
  • What are your post graduation plans?

 

 

Questions about your chosen profession. For example:

 

  • Which personality traits do you have that will make you a successful surgeon?
  • Who inspired your interest in Urology?
  • Where do you see the field of pediatrics in 10 years?
