Congratulations on applying to medical school, future doctor! 🥼
These are the documents friends and I used when preparing for our medical school interviews, and I hope that they can be of use to you as well. Many applicants don't know where to start when it comes to preparing for interviews or how to structure their time, so I have made effort to summarize how we structured the sessions we had. I recommend you read over this first page and then look at the pages linked below in order. You might feel intimidated at first, and that's okay! Remember that the point of looking over these documents is to practice and become better at answering interview questions. Like all skills, it takes time!
I make no guarantees about the quality of any of the documents listed here, but I will note that I used them in my own preparation. As the expectations society has of physicians changes, some of the content presented may become more or less important. It is your responsibility to keep up to date on these expectations, and some suggestions on how to do so are given.
