"How would you fix the current health care system? I answered, and then we talked about the answer for about thirty minutes. The interviewer was involved in introducing legislation to change health care coverage systems, and was very interesting. " Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"See above. Not that many difficult ones; I was suprised." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"Read this website and the school's website, which wasn't that helpful. " Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"Interviewers were interesting; the breadth of electives available from the first year (homeless medicine, etc. that get you into the community and into the clinical setting with a variety of populations right away) plus the gimme of wilderness medicine, which, in Colorado, would be a lot of fun" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Even though the facilities are up to the task, the school has been catching criticism for focusing too much on the move to the new Fitzimmons Center; students will start there beginning in 2005. It might not be the best time to be going to UCHSC, but overall it still seems like a quality institution." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Not much." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Not too stressful; interviewers didn't try any dirty tricks. Interviewers had not seen our file outside of the personal statement and bio info; they presented their findings, and others looked just at numbers and recommendations. Interesting approach. This means that you're free to wow the interviewers with the intangibles of why you want to be a physician. They did say, "is there anything I should know?" and it was emphasized that weaknesses in numbers, if they existed, should be covered, so be ready to explain any problems. " Report Response
