What is one of the specific questions they asked you (question 2)?

"You are a senior dental student with a favorite patient. He is always reliable, on time, and easy to get along with. You have gotten to be good friends with this patient and have even gone to his house and had dinner with him. When you graduate, you hear that his dental health provider is going to be a particularly lazy student with low grades and poor clinical skills- someone who is constantly behind and struggles in school. The patient means a lot to you, and you may have the power to move him to a different student. What would you do?" Report Response
