and enjoy the rest of the dvd Hi, my name is Dr Robert Hasty, assistant professor of Internal
Medicine, here at Nova Southeastern University and an internist I will be taking you through the art of the interview,
this marks the first step in your professional development The interview is something that every Physician remembers to the detailed level, because
it really is such an important process in your development I’ve interviewed hundreds of applicants for medical school and I have served
on the admissions committee for 3 different internal medicine residencies and I’m going to give you my perspective on
helping you develop your best interview skills The importance of a good interview is so critical for getting into medical school You spent much of your professional life getting to that
point by having good grades, good MCAT scores, etc. and the interview process you essentially have a 50% chance of getting into
that medical school at most medical schools across the United States I would recommend that you picture your interviewers as Advocates rather than Advisories Their goal is to present you in the most favorable light to the Admissions Committee, so
that the Admissions Committee can accept the best applicants that become the best Physicians Their goal is to present you in the most favorable light to the Admissions Committee, so
that the Admissions Committee can accept the best applicants that become the best Physicians One of the things we tell the interviewers is to imagine whether or not
you envision or not that applicant as being your physician in the future So as you prepare for the interview process try to put yourself in that light
to make the physician, become the physician that the interviewer wants to see The other thing is, you should know your application extremely well, some
of the interviewers will know your application detail, some will not either way they will ask very detailed questions about your application and you should be
prepared to answer those in the most objective and honest way you possibly can One of the experiences I had is one of the applicants did not know some of
the details about his own application and that did not favorably affect the interview process A critical question every interviewer is asking themselves about an applicant is whether
or not that person is generally interested in becoming a Physician and whether or not they are truly interested
in coming to that particular medical school You have to ask yourself if you are not genuinely interested in becoming a
Physician or going to that school, why are you going through the process You have to ask yourself if you are not genuinely interested in becoming a
Physician or going to that school, why are you going through the process You have to ask yourself if you are not genuinely interested in becoming a

are frequently asked at all the medical schools across the United States Alright next I’m going to be giving you the top ten questions that
are frequently asked at all the medical schools across the United States You should be prepared to answer each one of these questions
and give the most objective, honest answers you possibly can Question 1: Why do you want to become a physician? This
is a classic question that is asked almost every interview and basically they are trying to look at your passion about
medicine and why you want to become a physician Question 2: Would you please describe yourself. This is an open ended question that gives you a lot of freedom
to tell someone the positive things as well as adversities you’ve overcome to get to where you are Question 3: Where do you see yourself in 10 years? In this question the interviewer is looking to find out whether or
not you’ve thought about your career goals and what type of insight you have about your interest in your own future Question 3: Where do you see yourself in 10 years? In this question the interviewer is looking to find out whether or
not you’ve thought about your career goals and what type of insight you have about your interest in your own future Question 4: What do you want to specialize in? This question, the interviewer is looking to try to find out whether or not you’ve
thought about your career in medicine and what you want to do with your career. There’s no right answer to this question. Questions 5 & 6: What are you greatest strengths and what are your greatest weaknesses? Here the
interviewer is looking whether or not the applicant has some insight into their strengths and weaknesses Many times our strengths are sometimes also our greatest weaknesses. This sometimes will give some
insight to the interviewer upon your knowledge of your own personal strengths and weaknesses Many times our strengths are sometimes also our greatest weaknesses. This sometimes will give some
insight to the interviewer upon your knowledge of your own personal strengths and weaknesses Question 7: Where else are you applying? The interviewer here is trying to determine whether or not you’re
passionate about that medical school and whether or not your motivated in attending that medical school Question 8: What are your experiences in the medical profession? Here the interviewer is trying to determine whether or not
you’ve had many medical experiences and how those have impacted what type of physician you want to become Question 9: What are your hobbies and interests outside of medicine? The interviewer is trying to determine whether or not you are a
well rounded person, that you do have outside interests and it is great to tell unique things about your own person Question 10: What are the biggest challenges facing medicine today? In this question the interviewer is trying to determine whether or not
you’ve thought deeply about some of the bigger issues facing medicine and what your role will be in the future Every medical school application I’ve ever been involved with concludes with
asking the applicants do you have any questions or comments? My suggestion would be not to ask them questions that you can pick up
from the tour or from some other aspect of the interview that day, but rather ask them questions such as: what’s my next step in getting in this
medical school or what are my chances of getting in this medical school that turns them into your advocates, rather than your advisories and also it
shows the interest you have in getting in the medical school and they may give you some additional objections that may not have come
up previous to the interview. Good luck with the interview process.
