Interview Preparation

An interview at a medical institution can turn out to be grueling (medicine itself is a rigorous discipline, so do not expect the rendezvous to be a smooth ride). However, instead of anticipating too much about your chances and getting nervous about the same, make sure you are focusing more on ways cracking the interview. The way you prepare yourself is going to be the sole deciding factor of your fate during the all important day. Given below are some ways in which you should prepare yourself.

Be Systematic: A professional interview requires you to adopt a systematic approach. Remember the days when you used to start preparing for your school or board examinations days in advance? – how you allotted different time slots for preparing different subjects of your syllabus or for that matter different chapters of a single subject? It’s the same here. Now a university interview can be divided in to some crucial components. You need to divide your preparations in separate sections:

General Interview Questions i.e. “Why do you want to join The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center”, “Tell us about yourself”, “What do you know about us?” etc

The Behavioral Interview questions where you would be required to draw instances from your past achievements in a bid to establish various soft skills including team spirit, power of analysis etc.

Turning to resources in order to get an idea about MMIs or Multiple Mini Interview Questions whereby the interviewees are required to visit different scoring stations and listen and provide solutions to problems of individuals acting as patients

Taking help of several online videos to master the nuances of body language during an interview.

Practicing mock interviews in front of the mirror to ascertain that there no communication or body language glitches.

Relax: It is very important to beat stress during your preparation period. If you’re dedicating due time for your preparations you need not worry about covering all the aspects of the interview mentioned above. Make sure that you’re allowing yourself some “me-time” in between your preparations. Listen to some good music, try to memorize whatever you’ve learnt, or watch a good movie- in short, just relax.

Expect the Unexpected: Be prepared to face unexpected questions. Do not expect the rendezvous to be a walk in the park. Listen to the interviewer properly. If you think that you would not be able to approach a particular question at all then be honest enough to admit it.

Possible Interview Questions

  1. Why are you interested to join the medical university?
  2. Why do you want to become a physician?
  3. Are you aware of the ethics that are followed in this profession?
