If you think that "being yourself" and just convincing the interview panel that you really want to be a doctor will get you a place at med-school it may be time to re-evaluate your strategy.
The med schools have their own ideas of what makes a good doctor and the questions they ask may leave you searching for an answer. What would you say in answer to the following? -
"Why do you want to be a doctor and not a nurse?"
"What are the ethical issues involved in research?"
"What are the advantages and disadvantages of a PBL course?"
"You have one liver available for transplant, but two patients with equal medical need. One is an ex-alcoholic mother with two young children, the other a 13 year old with an inborn liver abnormality. How would you decide to whom it should be given?"
Ace Your Medical School Interview gives advice on all aspects of interview preparation and contains many of the questions you could be asked AND the answers the med schools want to hear.
Suitable for UK and International Students
