What was the most difficult question?

"No difficult questions really. I got all the ethical questions (cigarette scenario, family divided over sustaining life support, resident reports attending physician is treating patient poorly), but it was more conversational; no right or wrong answer was expected, just wanted to know my thoughts, see that I could identifiy issues." Report Response

"Method of teaching: theme-based, very self-directed, small group learning." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Student Welcome the night before the interview wasn't well organized." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"That the student welcome the night before was more of a social thing and that all of the information was available the next day during the lunch/tour. Not that the student's weren't friendly (they were very!), but I had work to do and didn't have the time. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"I was expecting a very stressful interview from what people had written on this page, but it was very relaxed and conversational (for me at least - some people did come back from their interviews looking quite flustered). For the ethics questions I think they just want to see that you can think critically; identify issues, pros and cons of your stance (almost like talking it through so they can see your thought processes)."
