interview process

Closed-file panel interviews (interviewers do not have access to your OMSAS file or any essays)

  • 3-person panel consisting of a physician, a community member, and a senior medical person
  • Typical panel question types:
  1. ethical scenarios
  2. situational questions
  3. personal life experiences
  4. curveball questions
  • 30 to 45 minutes interview.
  • Similar to Uottawa panel except more of a focus on personal questions
  • Interviews were held virtually in 2021, likely will be held virtually in 2022.
