Medical School Interview Tips and Strategies

How To Interview For Medical School Tutorial: Introduction



Invited for a medical school interview? Congratulations! Your medical school application has demonstrated your potential to pursue a successful medical career. Your grades, essays, MCAT scores and personal letters of recommendations have convinced the medical school admissions committee that you are a potential match for their med school. Only 10-15% of med school applicants are invited for a med school interview. If you have been invited for one, you should be very proud of yourself!

The med school interview will give you a chance to sell yourself to the admissions committee. My job here is to teach you how to interview to convince them that you are the real deal: a mature, articulate and intelligent applicant, capable of devouring knowledge, learning new skills and making life and death decisions. They know that you are a novice right now. But.. you want them to believe that after the rigorous training process that doctors go through, you will have the capability to learn how to amputate limbs, analyze blood, urine and excrement, or cut open people’s chests while still maintaining your sanity. (Are you sure that you still want to apply to medical school?)

Just as you have spent time studying for your pre-medical courses, preparing for the MCAT exam and writing your medical school personal statement, you must devote time to interview preparation. As Benjamin Franklin said, “Failing to prepare is preparing to fail!” . Medical school admission committees cite the interview as the most important determining factor for medical school acceptance. You need to conquer the interview process to skyrocket your medical school acceptance rate.
