What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 1)?

"I was applying through the Rural Program so at Morehead they asked more about rural medicine like "why the RPLP program" and at Lexington it was more general like "talk about a time in conflict" or "what was your research like"." Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

""Do you see yourself being a public figure". "What does the RPLP program mean to you". "Tell me about a time when you faced conflict". "Next week I will be talking to the Admission Committee, would you like to talk about anything in your application that you think needs some explaining so that I can advocate for you next week?", I talked about my low verbal score. "Tell me about your hobbies" "Tell me about any leadership roles you've played in a team". "Tell me about your volunteer and research experience". "Tell me about a time when you had only 5 minutes to come up with something impeccable" I also had an interviewer in business who asked me some Walmart interview questions. They were brain teasers and I got none of them right but he said he didn't care if I got them wrong, he wanted to see my thought process. I still got accepted so I suppose he was telling the truth when he said he didn't care if I got them wrong :)." Report Response

What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 3)?

""You shadowed Dr. X, and from what I've read you saw some bronchoscopies and CT scans. What was the most difficult case you saw while shadowing Dr. X". I said that the patients with cystic fibrosis are definitely the most diffcult pateints. I went on to say that I never got used to seeing the cystic fibrosis patients and I doubt that Dr. X has either. The desease is very hard to deal with for the patients and they families and even through that difficulty they manage to smile and I think that kind of resilience is inspiring." Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

""If you were an element, which would you be and why?"... I stupidly said Hydrogen lol!" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

""A patient comes into the ER after a car accident and needs an amputation, how will you break that news to his parents". I first asked how old he was and if he was driving the car and she said he is 17 and was alone driving the car. So then I went through the breaking bad news "protocol" that I practiced." Report Response

How did you prepare for the interview?

"This wesbite for ethics (it's GOLDEN): https://depts.washington.edu/bioethx/topics/ I talked to a mirror and wrote an outline for the "Why medicine" and "Tell me about yourself" questions." Report Response

What impressed you positively?

"The poeple, the new hospital, they really care about you!" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"First class in medical shcool with anatomy. Since I'm RPLP I'll have to move from Lexington to Morehead after 2 years." Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"I already went to the RPLP open house so I think that REALLY helped me for the RPLP interview. *whisper* they so some speed interviews at Morehead in additon to the 2 one-on-one interviews *whisper*" Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Interview is laid back! At the Morehead site they do a GREAT job at calming you down and the Lexington interviews are pretty chill. Be prepared and stay calm because they at the interview point they want to accept you, but they just need you to be personable and answer questions calmly with a clear head." Report Response
