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

"why medicine, why DO, why do you want to come to the desert? (he asked all 3 together as he leaned back in his chair with his hands over his head. It was a distraction to try and intimidate. He cut me off when I was trying to answer all three questions. They just use it as an opener. Stay calm and stay yourself, they are really nice people at heart.)" Report Response

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

"What are three things you would change in US healthcare right now if you had all the money in the world (i gave them two, asked for a moment to think of the third, and they stopped me, admitting the question was hard and moved on. They try to intimidate you but they are good men at heart, just be yourself)" Report Response

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

"What utensil would you be (answer fast, they are trying to see how adaptable you are). ALSO they asked "we all know smoking is bad. If you owned a hospital would you make all your employees stop smoking outside of the workplace for their safety?" (the answer is no, because you cannot infringe on someone's lifestyle, even if it would benefit them, it comes down to autonomy, The interviewer will question you, again and again, to try and make you crack but just stick with your answer). ALSO "if you had until the end of the day to give me the specialty of your choice, could you? (i said no because i may go through medical school and like something completely different, then they kept asking me "are you sure")" Report Response
