Interviews are just plain, personal talk where the faculty wants to know you. This book actually makes it an academic exercise, which is actually kind of wrong and may hurt your chances. Just go through NIH webcast for some interview etiquette and tips. Talk to people (for IMG's: American people) and faculty, if possible. That's it.
And on the day of interview, just pour you heart out. Tell a story about yourself. Don't list your academic achievements. Talk, with decency and politeness, like you would talk to a friendly stranger in a park . This is what they want to hear, not framed answers like this book teaches you.
None of the sourrces was thorough, organized, simple and trustable as this book.
This book covered the most important items in the interview as I believe, however interviews questions are uncountable and it is not the purpose of this book to make you memorize as much answers as you could. Rather the book orient you to the following items which was as very helpful
I will try my best to write in objective way as possible
It has three parts
Part one covers
1- interview process: this part tells you how different programs select people for the interview
Pros - why you are selected - let you understand how to enhance your chances to be invited in interviews
2-What are the different types of Interviews : very important to understand this part because you may need to provide your informmation differently with different types
My last interview few days ago I was informed by the program the types of interview, and because of this section I was familiarize to how it would be different and how I act accordingly
3-what is the residency interviewer looking for? I got my agenda organized in this part, you will be able to understand yourself and the way you can express yourself so the commitee knows who you are in a positive way.
5-making the most of your interview.Read more ›
I strongly believe that after reading Dr. Freedman's book you will be better prepared to any situation you might find before, during and after the residency interview.
Short and sweet, all relevant information.
Overpriced for the amount of information.
Dr. Freedman will guide on what questions to expect, ask and how to prepare for them. She has sample Q&A in the appendix with analysis and those were tremendous help. My advice, use them as guide and prepare your responses ahead of time (may be on word document) and review them before you go for your interview. Also, make sure that your responses are in line with your ERAS application and personal statement. Good luck everyone!
Thank you Dr. Freedman!!
