What are your general comments?

"The day began with an introduction to how the STD. PT. prg works. We had a volunteer whom we did not know at the time was actually one of the faculty members play the role of a pt. and one of us volunteered to be the doctor trying to find out what is "wrong" with this "pt." That went really well, there was a part two of that which was based on how to perform a physical examination (auscultation). A tour of the childrens' hospital followed and then the medical school and anatomy lab. Lunch break followed and a brief informal financial presentation FYI out of state students $52,000/yr. My interview was at 3:30pm I had about one and half hours down time, bring something to read. Don't be intimidated, you have three pple. interviewing you in one of the rooms located in the library only one has your open file with your academic transcipt and MCAT scores. The other two don't. The team comprises of a faculty member, clinician, and a medical student (M1-M4). A panel interview may not be favorable with most pple., but it is not different from the one on one, Just be yourself. " Report Response
