Residency Interviews – What to Expect

Posted by medliorator on February 2, 2009

Interviewing for any job can be stressful. Residency interviews may be on a whole different level.

Although most of my interviews were get-to-know-each-other type of affairs I was, at times, ‘pimped’ on clinical scenarios, asked to read CT and MRI scans, and even had my dexterity tested.

in the specialty I’m trying to enter, the average medical student went on more than 14 interviews. Like for in many job interviews, each residency interview is a full day, often a multi-day affair. 14 job interviews is a lot. Perhaps more telling, it isn’t unheard of to talk with 15+ individuals at a single interview.

The entire interview process, including any potential second looks, is largely self funded… It’s an investment in your future of course and so I think most applicants take the debt with grace. And most medical students are used to debt; another $10,000 is just something to shrug at…unfortunately. Still, it is a little eyebrow raising.
