What are your general comments?

"1. Explain to the interviewer a little bio about yourself (your background, where you grew up, etc). 2. Be able to communicate why you want to be a doctor. Why medicine if you want to make a difference in this world? Why not something else? 3. What did you study in college and why? They want to know if you do anything else besides study in college. Some questions might be What do you do for fun? What are your hobbies? What books do you read? What movies do you watch? Do you play sports? etc. 4. They will ask you questions about characteristics that will make a good doctor and see if you are fit. Some questions might be How do you handle stress? Do you work well in a team? Give examples for the answer! 5. They want to know if you have plans for the future. What specialty are you interested and why? Would you take a specialty with more money than for the lifestyle (say family doctor vs surgeon) 6. Lastly, you have the opportunity to ask them questions. This is what my interview experience was like at UAMS. Also, bring a bottle water to the room if you have a dry mouth after speaking for a long periods of time." Report Response
