Medical School Online Interview Course Overview
Preparing for interviews for Medical and Dental school can be tough. Not only is it hard to find the right information, but you may not have much time between exams or work. You want to ace your interview, but you may not feel comfortable practising questions with others. Or you may want some more help before you start forming your answers.
Well, let us be your guide.
How to prepare for your medical school interview?
The key to good interview preparation is to:
- find out more about the interview process and type of medical school interview you will be having (e.g. panel interview or MMI stations)
