interview process

Memorial’s Faculty of Medicine uses two interviews to assess each applicant.

  • The composition of the interview is:
  1. One 30-minute two-person panel traditional interview, designed to get to know the candidate via topics like decision making, life experiences, interactions with others, and future goals, and;
  2. Eight (6-minute) multiple-mini interview (MMI) stations. The MMI scenario is provided to the applicant asynchronously and their response is recorded for view by an assessor.

Here are some similar questions to what they ask

Doing Right by Philip C. HΓ©bert

Canadian book with clinical cases of bioethics. This book provides a solid introduction to moral principles and ethical reasoning, but we consider it to be low-yield and rather difficult to read. It requires some basic clinical understanding to best understand the resource. We recommend starting with the University of Washington Bioethics site.

As time goes by, I'm starting to realize that I'm not too certain or passionate about a career in medicine. How can I be certain or what can I do to rule out whether medicine is a good career for me or not?
