标 题: After interviewing residents
发信站: BBS 未名空间站 (Tue Nov 4 23:01:56 2014, 美东)
Today I interviewed three candidates.
The package of the candidates includes one detailed form for me to fill and
the CV, rotation evaluation, USMLE reports, and recommendation letters.
The form for me to fill is like this:
Questions to ask the candidates: if you have different opinions from the
seniors, what will you do? How do you prepare for a presentation? How do you
educate a patient to be compliant?etc.
A scoring list : personality, appearance and conduct, EQ, knowledge,
The score is like: do not rank, solid candidate with minor concern, superior
candidate with potential of chief.
Score is 1.0 to 10.0
What is the candidate's future plan: fellowship? General internal medicine?
What did they as you?
All the candidates wee from our own medical school , High scores, 230s to
260s. They have research experience.
First one is American Caucasian, second one is a Chinese but immigrated to
US when very young, third is a US born Indian. Chinese is a sweet and smart
girl but too shy. Indian has highest score and best evaluation, very
outgoing and sincere, definitely best one. Caucasian has high scores too.
All of them want to do fellowships. They applied to 40-50 programs, got 25+
interview invitations! going to 12-15 interviews.
My feelings: CMGs don't waste money on mid-west programs. Unless you have
New-York community programs are still your best chance.
Chinese are too shy. The parents need to train their kids to have strong
communication skills, train them how to smile, how to talk, how to present,
how to convince people.
Why every parent is pushing kids to the Chinese school, and music school or
whatever if their kids cannot talk appropriately?
What is the use of grasping double triple languages if they cannot use one
Doctors are different from scientists, communication skills are way more
