How did you prepare for the interview?

"Mock Interviews. Lots and lots of mock interviews. My best tip for anyone who wants to do well on the interview is: Do at least one mock interviews with a doctor you've come to know well, and let them judge your performance after you finish. If you did well, congrats, you'll probably do well on the real ones too. If you didn't, or if there was a moment during the mock interview you stumbled, make sure you work on it and improve.
