What are your general comments?

"My interviewers were wonderful people and both we involved more heavily in the non-clinical aspects of medicine such as business and preventative care. The interviews were very laid back and conversational. It was obvious that they were trying to get a feel for who I am as a person rather than slam me with a bunch of typical questions. I spent a long time talking with one of my interviewers. We got a long really well, and I just remember us both laughing throughout the interview. Very nice experience." Report Response
