Medical and Dental School Interviewing Workshop

As some of your Class of 2014 classmates can attest, some Medical Schools have started to interview applicants, and will continue to do so through April. The Medical School interview process might seem intimidating, but there are definitely things you can do now to prepare:

1. Do your research ahead of time. The good news is that most of the interview questions will be all about a subject that you’re an expert on: yourself! Make sure you’re able to speak about everything on your application, resume and transcript, and that you know how you want to market yourself in the interview. Make sure you have also researched the school and the specific program.

2. Practice your interviewing skills. Schedule a one-on-one 30 minute counseling appointment with a Wasserman Career Counselor to do a mock-interview. This can be a great way to get feedback on your interview techniques before you’re in front of Admissions staff.

3. Attend the Medical and Dental School Interview Workshop on September 23rd at 5pm at the Wasserman Center. RSVP on NYU CareerNet. In this workshop, students will learn and practice interview strategies that will help you ace the medical and dental school interview. This workshop will be led by Preprofessional Advisors, Career Counselors, and current medical students who very recently navigated the process. They will give you suggestions and tips for how to tailor yourself and speak confidently about your experiences in a way that will leave a lasting impression on admissions committees. You will also have the chance to watch and participate in mock-interviews that will help you hone your skills.
