Med School Interviews (Part 2- The Dream Interview)

EMILY-HAUSE-WINNINGHello my future interviewees! Two weeks ago I told you about an interview experience which was less than ideal. This week I want to tell you about the best interview experience that I had.

The day did not get off to an auspicious start. I actually almost missed my flight due to a malfunctioning security scanner at the airport. Once I arrived at the school, I had the undesirable position of having the last two interview slots of the day. What that means is that everyone else interviewed first and I got to hear about …

“The Applicant” – A Medical School Admissions Drama

Here is a must share from the Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry at Western University of Canada. The medical school admissions video was for Interview Weekend 2013 created by the Class of 2016.

The film titled: ‘The Applicant’ is a bizzare comedy that follows a prospective medical school student the day of his interview. The film pokes fun at typical pre-med and medical stereotypes. My Oscar nomination for Medical School Movies of 2013!

Unfortunately, opportunities to pick the brain of a Dean of Admissions are few and far between. In an effort to shed some light on what admissions committees …

Application Essentials VII: Interviews

Medical School Interview

We’ve all heard horror stories:  bizarre ethical dilemmas, not clicking with your interviewer, the old “window-being-nailed-shut” story.  But medical school interviews really aren’t that bad.  Perhaps the most misunderstood part of the application, these brief conversations hold the key in that final step of getting you from interviewee to medical student.

Why do pre-health schools do interviews?  What are they looking for?

The interview is all about your ability to communicate clearly and effectively with others.  Medicine is, at its core, a humanistic practice of care for one’s community.  To be a successful clinician, you will …
