Meet her yourself, you'll see." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"You can either be interviewed by a 4th year med student, a professor, or a physician. I was interviewed by Dr. Vicinni of physiology. All the interviewers I met were extremely nice and Dr. Vicinni was no exception. The interview was really straight forward asking me about my experiences and what I thought were major problems in healthcare. Afterwards he told me that he thought I was an "exceptional candidate" so I can't really complain about him :)." Report Response
