What was the most interesting question?

""Many years ago, I was reading an article from the literature that criticized the biomedical model and suggested that it should be referred to the biopsychosocial medical model. What do you think biopsychosocialmedical model means?"" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"She threw a couple of questions out that I really hadn't considered mostly because I thought Houston stuck with the basics. They were kind of hard during the interview because I wasn't expecting them, but I thought on my feet and she said I did well. Some of them were: How would you handle cross-cultural differences as a physician? Why is educating the community as a physician important? Why is it important for a physician to make a patient feel comfortable and confident when they are in your office?" Report Response

"This website, the UTH website, researched current healthcare stuff but nothing was asked about it." Report Response

"MD Anderson was really awesome. I liked the whole idea of trying to make it feel more like a hotel than a hospital. I didn't get to see any of the other tours." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Houston traffic. It took me nearly two hours Friday afternoon to go from the school to the west side of Houston! And I'm not used to the traffic...everybody kept honking at me and I thought I was driving fine! LOL!! :)" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The day was great! I really enjoyed UTH. I only had one interviewer that day. Around lunchtime I was told that my second interviewer had an emergency and that they did not have any back-up interviewers. She proceeded to tell me that the first one was on the admissions committee and that I was free to go for the day or go on additional tours. It was a relief, but at the same time I wanted another chance to say all the things I forgot to mention in the first interview. Also, I would highly recommend staying with a med student host and going to the night before social. Both were fun and very insightful. No chicken-fried steak this time. We had some kind of baked lemon chicken and some yummy cookies." Report Response
