What are your general comments?

"The interview process was pretty laid back. We took a tour of Shriner's Hopsital. It was interesting, but some of the other interviewees complained that the tour focused too much on certain aspects of the hospital. There are a lot of interviewers; you could get matched up with MD's, PhD's or med students. If you don't like one of your interviews, you can ask for another. " Report Response
