Preparing for an interview is never an easy task. You aren't able to control what you get asked or what the day of the interview will bring. However, when it comes to your residency interview, there are some tips and tricks that can help you ace it. First things first, research what to expect. Some interviews will take 10 minutes while others will take 30. Be on the lookout for incoming materials that will explain to you what your interview process will be like. From there, dig deeper to see what past applicants and current advisors say about the process so you can be as prepared as possible. A friendly, calm demeanor will help your confidence shine during your interview. Worried about a lack of confidence? Well, the more you prepare, the less nervous you'll appear. Next, be sure to understand the program. You have an interview in order to see if you're a good fit for the program. This means that not only do you have to prepare yourself but you have to research the program as well. When you go into the interview you should have a full understanding of why you are the perfect candidate for that program in particular. shutterstock_155433188 When it comes to clinical knowledge and medical terms, be sure to brush up before the interview. While most of the conversation will be focused on you and the program, don't be surprised if you get asked questions that will require you to whip out some of the terminology you have learned over the years. Finally, be yourself. Admissions counselors can tell if you are being honest so always be as sincere as possible. Show them who you are and why you deserve to be there.
