"My first interview was terrific. I engaged in a meaningful and stimulating conversation with an MD who seeked to learn more about me and attempt to assess my potental contributions to TTUHSC and to medicine. My second interview was a bit more of a interrogation where I sat defending my purpose and desire to practice medicine. " Report Response
