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

"A 14yo walks into your office, missing two period cycles and asks for an abortion. What do you do? Do you tell her parents, specifically her father? What would you do if the kid was raped? Then what would you do if her father raped her? (I didn't expect a series of questions, but I think they wanted to see how I would react under pressure. I answered with the best of my ability and stuck to my position and action plan. We'll see if they like it in a few weeks)" Report Response

What was the most interesting question?

"The abortion question. Not some much the abortion part, but how you would react if a series of unfortunate events happened (see above). Later into the conversation the 14yo was not pregnant, what would you do? I said do a HCG test, right?" Report Response

What was the most difficult question?

"The abortion question was challenging, but I enjoyed discussing it. The interviewer also asked me about healthcare and what my knowledge of socialized medicine was and if I support it. I c/c private and socialized medicine and spoke about what I believe in. I don't know if this was the answer the interviewers wanted, but I was thorough and honest with my response." Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Norfolk is gorgeous, but it's a lot different from LA and NYC. The night life is nothing to brag about, but the area is still very pretty. I can see myself attending EVMS! I love it actually. On another note, the 1st year curriculum seems a little intense. " Report Response

What did you wish you had known ahead of time?

"Nothing really. You can't be 100% prepared for the types of questions that they will throw at you. Just be confident and stick to your gun." Report Response

What are your general comments?

"Great campus! Sentara General and Sentara Heart Hospital are top notch facilities. The children's hospital is also gorgeous; it even has a built-in "pirate ship" as a bed for one of the operation room! How cool is that?! And patients get to be pushed into surgery in a wagon of their choice! They even get flavored slurpee afterwards. Awesome!" Report Response
