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

"Is healthcare a right or a privilege?" More from this Member | Report Response | I was asked this question too

"One interview totally involved ethics-based scenarios. For instance, you see an elderly woman outside the hospital, she's wearing a gown, and seems disorientated. What do you do? My interviewer was very receptive but appreciated me using key words or details. In this case, an important detail is trying to get information from the wrist tag typically given to hospital patients in order to try and figure out where the patient should go. In another scenario where a worried wife calls you (the doctor) and asks for her husband's exam results, a key word/concept would be HIPAA. Of course, I think equally or more important than this is being able to describe your approach, reasoning, and the ethical principles that are implicated."

How did you prepare for the interview?

"SDN and reviewed application both primary and secondary. Know your experiences well." More from this Member | Report Response

"Ironically, something definitely incredibly helpful was reviewing aloud and writing key points for my response to questions from SDN's interview feedback section. UW was also really great (spent the entire week prior to interviewing, reviewing it—most importantly answering by myself the scenario questions at the end of each section). Specifically for the interview based on my app and experiences, I thoroughly reflected on and reviewed multiple times the responsibilities, lessons, memorable experiences, and skills I gained in each activity. This helps with questions like describe a time a teammate was uncooperative, a time you demonstrated leadership skills, a time your actions had a ripple effect (this last one wasn't specifically asked, but I think something similar was). *For those with time and interested in seeing different kinds of scenarios, I personally enjoyed watching the YT video "A Conversation About Challenging Cases in Clinical Ethics" just because it shows how professionals would more naturally respond and the importance of considering the implications of each decision and approach. The three scenarios presented are MUCH more complex than the ones given at any interview I have ever attended!" More from this Member | Report Response

"My interview was via zoom because of the pandemic, so my impressions are nearly entirely based off of the interviews. I was surprised by how casual and conversational the interview went. Before interviewing, I was intimidated by this school and secretly expected kind of snobby interviewers, but they definitely were not.

"Everything about the school left a positive impression. Miami is a truly international city, and the patient exposure the students were getting here was unmatched. I talked to several M2s who had been DIRECTLY involved in patient care (one had conducted a live birth). People from all over the south (think Caribbean islands) are flown into Jackson, the second busiest hospital in the nation. You know that rare disease 0.005% of the population has? How about those tropical diseases? Miami sees it all the time. The curriculum was well set up (integrated blocks, and later organ systems), the Department of Community Service was active, and students had a plethora of extracurriculars to choose from, including mission trips, research, etc. Miami is my #1."

"I was unbelievably impressed by the school. In the last few years, they've received hundreds of millions of dollars in grants and donations, and they've also purchased a new hospital. In the same time, they've attracted a few world class physicians for their paralysis research center and their ophthalmology center, as well as in a few other specialties. Because of that, there are opportunities to do anything you'd ever want to do, whether its clinical experience, research, or whatever. They also have a gigantic simulation center, which is one of my biggest interests in medicine. They've pumped a ton of funding into it, and IIRC it's the largest one in the United States. They have a blocked curriculum, so students are never forced to have strings of exams in anatomy, biochemistry, histology, etc. -- it's just one science course at a time with other courses in ethics and patient care to supplement that. There's a good mix of traditional lectures and PBL (a 75/25 split). There's also a lot of student support. The class is divided up into 12 different "societies" of 12 or 13 students that work together throughout the year. The societies also compete in intramural events so it's not all just work. The interview day was very laid back. There were, I believe, thirteen other people interviewing with me. We got a free breakfast and a campus tour beforehand, and the tour guides were very helpful in answering any and all questions that we had. The interview was with one physician and was open file. He asked a few general questions that he said he was forced to ask (including one silly ethical question), and then we just chatted about my application and what I do for fun and all that. It was only like 45 minutes long, and then there was lunch with med students and some more Q&A. All of the students there seemed enamored by the school (obviously a biased sample, but whatever)."

"1. What's going on here with regards to research and recruiting is incredible. I'm convinced UM's ranking is going to skyrocket in a couple years. Spoke with a number of students who were actively involved in research projects. 2. The clinical training seems to be unbeatable. One 4th year student remarked that the residency program director at his first choice essentially told him they'd be ranking him highly because of UM's clinical reputation. 3. The atmosphere was very relaxed and the students seemed very warm and friendly. I really feel like I'd fit in here. 4. USMLE Step 2 scores appear to be through the roof. 5. Miami. Enough said." More from this Member | Report Response

"despite the facilities being older than most I've seen, Miami did seem to provide the best clerkship experience (easily beats that of Harvard's or any other school I can think of). It's locale not only makes anyone's decision to live in South Beach convenient, but it being the only major hospital in the South East and Caribbean region really puts itself in an ideal set up for your clinical experience. The strength of all its residency programs reflect this (Jackson Memorial is a well respected institution) Really hands on clinical experience and the most diverse patient population I have seen thus far. 3rd and 4th year students reaffirmed this. Societies really integrate upper and lower classmates (not segregated like almost all schools)" More from this Member | Report Response

They do a lot of service projects to help the surrounding community (health fairs). Dr. Hinkley and Agnes are both super nice. There are tons of research opportunities available here for students who want to take advantage of them. The FAU satellite campus is really awesome. Right now the FAU students spend their first two years in Boca and the other two in Miami at Jackson, but they will eventually have their own teaching hospital in Boca.

Also they're building a new wellness center that will have a new gym. I was also very impressed by the students that came in to talk to us at lunch- they seemed bright, happy to be learning (not depressed by a boring work load), enthusiastic about the way the classes are held with live classes, plus saved online lectures & podcast (lectures in ipod format) supplement, and the academic societies sound really supportive of a student friendly (NON cut throat) environment " More from this Member | Report Response

Research wise, I was impressed by the faculty currently on staff at UM and their focus on interdisciplinary research efforts. In addition, UM is poised to participate in the MSTP program in the near future. UM also offers societies, groups comprised of 15 students from each year of medical school, that create continuity and a support structure for its members. I think this will be especially helpful for students moving into research after their first two years of medical school and facing a return to clinicals in the future. Finally, during my tour of Jackson Memorial, we actually saw an acute trauma case come in by helicopter. That just re-affirmed the benefit of being at a hospital like Jackson Memorial in terms of available clinical experience." More from this Member | Report Response

"I really liked the atmosphere. The students and admissions faculty are very warm and professional. You could see the good intent behind their efforts to make us comfortable as "visitors of the college of medicine". As with all medical school interviews, they did a WONDERFUL job of selling the school to us <wink> I really like the "non-traditional" additions to the curriculum, the UNBELIEVABLE medical facilities, the focused attention on clinical experience, and their new research successes and opportunities. I also really liked the personal attention that we EACH recieved. Unlike a lot of other schools (who pack in tons of interviewees in one day), there were only twelve (or so) of us. The admissions staff truly made an effort to reach out to each one of us individually. Finally, I really liked the interview! My interviewer was wonderful :) He was very professional and had a great sense of humor. I thoroughly enjoyed sharing my opinion on medical issues with him (he listened well and tried to see things from my perspective) and I liked how he made long clear descriptions of what he wanted me to answer.

"Being one of the busiest hospitals in the country, Jackson provides UM medical students with an incredibly wide variety of cases. Whatever you want to see, you will see plenty of it there. It also sounded to me like research opportunities were readily available for any students who were interested." More from this Member | Report Response

"The students who came up to us and talked about Miami and really seemed to love the school. I was also very impressed with the diversity of the students--not only race/culture but in their personalities as well. The students seemed very laid back and not under too much stress. Jackson medical center is enormous and would offer clinical experiences that far exceed other med schools. Their student societies sound like they foster a strong connection between upperclass/underclass students--but it still sounds like my "teams" in middle school haha. The city of Miami is a definite plus, although it feels too congested at times. The school is very "wired" and allows students to watch lectures from their computer and many use this option instead of attending class (not sure if this is good or bad). It sounded like the administration seeks input from students and actually responds and takes their suggestions seriously. " More from this Member | Report Response

The lecture hall actually has a small television like control room at the back of the room to carry that all out, I didn't expect it to be that high tech. Very nice surprise.

He just wanted to hear my life story and how it was that I came to choose medicine. The hospital is enormous (which in my opinion is a definite positive) but the faculty and students seemed very close knit. The curriculum changes made a few years ago seemed to have improved the program significantly and the students say they really like the way it is now structured. Dean Hinkley is about as friendly as they come! " More from this Member | Report Response

"There's really nothing negative to say about UM. The whole day was put together wonderfully. The day started with random medical students coming in to greet you as well as make you feel at home. Everybody was really cordial and friendly and appeared genuinely interested in getting to know you. Everyone from Dr. Hinkley, the secretaries, and the physician who interviewed me definintely were nice people who were more interested in you having a positve and enjoyable experience at their school. In terms of training and clinical contact, I dont think there is another school that could compare to the extensiveness of clinical exposure or sheer amount of patient contact. As it is one the busiest hospitals in the nation Im sure you will be leaving that medical school well trained and informed. In a nutshell, the whole experience was wonderful, facilities were great and on the cutting edge (with adding new buildings and technology), and probably most importantly, the people there from med students to faculty were 100% top notch in way of friendliness, professionalism, and personalities."

The curriculum, facilities, and clinical resources are, of course, amazing. And the lunch was very good compared to the other schools I have interviewed at.

There are a lot of opportunities to work with underserved populations (Health Fair in the Keys, trips to Haiti during the break) " More from this Member | Report Response

" First and foremost, as the day began, the secretary put us at ease with some friendly chit-chat. Students continuously strolled in and out in an attempt to make us feel at ease. At my interview, my experience with my interviewer, was a most enjoyable experience. He truly made me feel that I wanted to become a member of the "Miami" family. To top it off, Dr. Hinkley's step by step explanation of the process was extremely helpful. I was also quite impressed with the research opportunities for students, as well as the many opportunities with patients at Jackson.

"The day itself was very well organized. Their was a great "pep-talk" from a doctor about the importance of being a doctor and adding something to the body of knowledge (his focus was research, but he did not try to sell Miami in particular).

"The students, faculty, administration are all extremely friendly, open and honest. The students seem like they work hard but also have time to enjoy themselves because of a modified curriculum that decreases lecture time. They only have one single class at a time which can go for just a couple weeks to several weeks. The clinical exposure available at Jackson Memorial is incredible- it is the 2nd busiest hospital in the nation. The students say that you can do more at Jackson as a Med student than a lot of other places, but I think this is true of any public hospital in a diverse urban area. Jackson will see anybody with or without insurance, and it is funded by a half cent sales tax. Miami has a very diverse population- it serves as a gateway into the US from many foreign countries, and the population is 60% Hispanic. There are a lot of opportunities to go on medical trips to countries in the Carribbean and in the Florida Keys. The University now looks favorably upon out of state applicants because it is trying to gain national recognition- (which obviously is good for out of staters " More from this Member | Report Response

"Although the University of Miami is not considered a "top tier" school," I really enjoyed my stay because the people I encountered were extremeley friendly and hospitable. The student hosts I stayed with offered to pick me up from the airport, which was beyond their responsibility. The friendly personalities were evident from the students to the administration. The Dean of Admissions is awesome and he comes across as being an advocate for the students. The administration people are very warm and welcoming as well. I am wondering if the bubbly personalities have any correlation to the sunny weather. Anyhow....a fourth year student gave us a tour and I was amazed by the fact that people stopped and smiled to say hi as we toured Jackson hospital. The capacity of the trama center is impressive and the Jackson ER is unique in that it is separated into different departments. Jackson is such a huge, busy hospital that patients are triaged and then sent to a particlar part of the ER. I think Jackson hospital is full of excellent opportunities to gain direct hands on clinical experience even before you begin your rotations. The University of Miami appears to be an excellent insitution that promotes generating clinically prepared candidates for residency. Apparrently last year was the first year they began admitting out of state residents and in the next few years they hope that as much as 40% of their entering class will be non-Florida residents. I suppose this change is to push the University of Miami towards becoming a nationally recognized institution rather than being only known as a Florida med school. There are lots of things to do in Miami and I really liked the cultural and ethnic diversity of the area. Being a California resident, I would like to ideally remain here, but if I can't, then Miami is just as good except my family wouldn't be near by. " More from this Member | Report Response

"This was the first and only interview that actually felt like one. I was asked questions about my character, my reasons for going into medicine, my goals as a practicing physician, how I would deal with ethical issues, etc. It's actually what most students expect on an interview when they are preparing for medical school interviews.

I really think they could hold off on the clinical until after xmas break your first year. Ranking amongst your classmates throughout the entirety of your 4 years wasn't too appealing either.

"1) The interviewer answered his cellphone on a personal, mundane call during my interview. 2) The interviewer was obviously bored by my answers, and spent most of the time looking at the ceiling or picking his nails 3) The interviewer held a crumpled sheet of paper in front of his face and asked me questions he had typed up in a drolling voice. He told me 'these questions are good, don't worry, I ran over them with the head guy, ha ha!' 4) The interviewer assumed things about me because of my background. 5) While I was in the restroom, the campus tour left me. I notified the admissions committee before I left for the restroom that I was leaving to use the restroom and that I'd be right back. The interview was horrible and impersonal. The school seemed to completely ignore their students. Also, all of the 3rd + 4th years told me that basic science training (the first two years) are pretty bad, and that students are left on their own to study for the Step 1's. However, they said that 3rd and 4th year was great because you are exposed to so much in the hospital. To me, this means that Miami is a great place for residency, but not a great place for medical school. The students seemed to be of the ego/snobby/partier type...drawn to Miami because of the South Beach lifestyle. " More from this Member | Report Response

"The biggest things that made me uncomfortable here are that the Miami campus is in a horrible area (I felt very unsafe), and the attitude of some of the students on the Miami campus. When I mentioned being interested in FAU, they pretty much all started bashing FAU. These students probably hadn't ever even seen FAU, so I took their opinions with a grain of salt, but it still left a bad impression on me that they would bash their own satellite campus. Also, Miami may be a little TOO laid back for me. I think it's great that the students there don't stress or get competitive, but I was not impressed by some students bragging about how they have never opened a textbook the whole time they were in school, and how they go clubbing every night. Call me crazy, but I think people SHOULD read their textbooks in med school. Finally, I am not that into seeing major trauma, but if that is your thing, you will absolutely love it here."

"Miami is expensive for both in-state and out of state students--but i'd say its worth it for the clinical education and opportunities aviable at such a large medical center. I think the FAU campus is a downside unless you really wanted to be in Boca instead of Miami(but would only be for two years). FAU students have to drive down to Miami for meetings/events ect, and it sounds like they miss out on a lot of the clinical stuff that jackson offers--but the academics and coursework at FAU sound on par with the miami campus. Students claim you dont HAVE to know spanish--but their stories made it sound like you either know spanish before or you learn a medical version of it very quickly."

"I found out from one of the med students that UM's grading system actually uses numbers and pass/fail together. So unlike most med schools and their straight pass/fail/honors systems, UM records your numerical average for a course on your transcript as well as whether that number was good enough to pass or fail that certain class. For example, your final grade in Pathology may be recorded as something like this: P/85. I personally think this will just make the class more competitive but its supposed to help the students land good residencies because it shows how much they truly learned.

"Everywhere I turned there was a subliminal put down of UF. Someone actually said, we teach to be good doctors, not just to take tests (referring to UF's bettr board scores). They care more about proof of Florida residency than UF because they get money for every Florida resident. They just committed to getting more out of state students (30 out of a class of 160 up from like 10). This bugs me and they need to change their philosophy if they want to be a top med school. It just seems that they have all these resources but don't use them to the fullest. Eg. they went on about this great electronic application process they have that lets them all vote quickly on your application and then told us how we should not expect to hear any time before March.
