At the school
"Tell me about your high school experience"
"What is your greatest fear about medicine?"
"What kind of movies do you watch?"
"MD/PhD: "Do you think MRI is going to further encroach on the other imaging modalities? (i.e. PET, SPECT, CT, ultrasound) MD: How does your engineering background help or hurt you in studying medicine? "
""Please explain the Fourier Transform window you used in this experiment" (MD/PhD question related to my research). As for MD only, I dont remember any really difficult questions. I guess the toughest was "What personality characteristic would you change about yourself?""
"Looked at this web site, interviewfeedback.com also. Read up on current medical issues. Studied my previous research very thoroughly (probably dont need to do this unless you are applying MD/PhD)"
"Incredible research opportunities available in every area of medical science; possibility of doing research at the NIH while at Hopkins; Clinical training in 3rd and 4th years is unparalleled in my opinion."
"the area around the medical campus is not good, as i'm sure you've heard before"
"There were a couple of labs that I didnt know about beforehand that I wish I had known about so I could read some of their publications and meet with the principal investigators."
"Overall, very positive. The only thing I didnt like was the area around the campus. The campus itself is OK, there are uniformed guards on every corner on the campus, but once you step off campus, watch out."
