At a regional location
"Tell me about yourself..."
"Why did you choose to go to UCSD (my undergrad school)?"
"What distinguishes you from the other candidates that you think makes you right for admission to Duke?"
"If you were interviewing me (the interviewer), what would you ask?"
"What other medical schools did you apply to (I couldn't remember!) but seriously, the questions weren't all that difficult. Somewhat open ended maybe (like "tell me about yourself...")"
"Dukemed website, read my secondary, SDN"
"The doctor who interviewed me was very friendly. We had more of a conversation than an interview. At first I was disappointed when all the on-site interviews were booked and I had to do a regional. In the end, it saved time and money, and I felt it went well."
"Nothing really. I just hope that regional interviews are given equal consideration as on-site."
"I think this site and my other preparation left me without any real surprises"
"I received notice that I got an interview with Duke, and that same day I attempted to schedule an interview on-site, but they were all booked. Fortunately Duke has a regional interviewing program, and I got in touch with an MD who works in my area. He was very flexible in his scheduling, and we just met at one of his offices between surgeries he was performing that day. The interview was low-stress, straightforward. At the end, he told me I did well and I'd get his recommendation to the committee... we'll see if it all pans out."
