You are a judge for a student competition on public health. Student competitors had to present on a current health topic, describing the health issue, current solutions, and possible other health solutions. You and the rest of the judging panel have narrowed down the submission pool to two presentations; one on lung cancer and the other on geographical inequalities in population access to primary care. You and the other judges believe that both projects are extremely well done, but they vary significantly in their subject matter. The competition rules are clear that there can only be one winner. How would you go about choosing a winner?

Jamie scored your response an 8/10

You spoke clearly and had a good pacing. I heard a lot of ums in the beginning, so just make sure you practice not using those little words as much as you can. Also, try to show a little bit more enthusiasm so your interviewer knows that you're more engaged in the interview. You were able to identify a strength, a weakness, one is more important, so good job there. When talking about your strength, you did well talking about how you problem-solve on a general level, but your answer would be much more powerful if you could provide a specific example of the time you demonstrated the strength. So you also mentioned your problem-solving is how you live your life . . .

Feedback Score:Β 4/10

You went deep on where the specific difficulties lie, but I didn't hear anything in terms of how you plan to improve this weakness. A specific plan and example of how you are actively working on your weakness would be again really much more powerful. If you could also tie both of your answers, weakness and strength, into what it means to be a physician or practice as a physician, this would make your overall goal and mindset much more clear. So it's a good start as of now, an overall 4 out of 10, but keep practicing.
