"I see your name is ____are your parents catholic. Do they think abortion is murder? As a physcian you will have to make ethical decisions about issues like abortion. Would you suggest to your patient to have an abortion? I of course said it is not my place to tell people what to do. As a physcian I can only give people options not decide for them. He said that is not true you have to make decisions about things like abortion. Then I said this is legal issue not an ethical one. He said it is not. Then he preceded to ask me if I thought abortion was murder. I am a very confident person but was very uncomfortable. " Report Response

What are your general comments?

"The interviewer was completely inappropriate and asked questions that were not only illegal in our country but were inrelevant to evaluating me as a candidate. Additionally, the interviewer berated me and did not except any answer I gave as relevant. I have looked thru the interview feedback and am certain that every negative interview posted was the result of this particular interviewer. What I don't understand is how the school could allow such an inappropriate person to interview. There is no way someone has not complained thus far because this man was beyond inapproriate and it is even more inappropriate that such a person could be evaluating candidates. Moreover, he no longer even practices medicine and is completely out of touch with modern day medical issues. The experience was so bad I thougth it might have been a joke and Da Ali G was disguise."
