Thanks a lot, yf.

Everything happened within a day (within 6 hours actually),too fast.I may
not make it ultimately as this is a CONDITIONAL offer depending on whether I
could get all the paperwork done within 2 weeks.

When I went there, 3 applicants, no sure if there are others coming. I was a
bit nervous as I saw one applicant is a resident's wife. Everybody came
through connection for sure.

Interviewed by 3 physicians including PD.
Questions:
Tell me about yourself...

Since 1998 (I graduated with MD), what have you done?
They all asked me about this. My first-time answer was awful: wasted for 3
minutes, realizing that the only message i delivered to PD was that I got
an Ph.D., that's it. For the second time, I quickly mentioned how I came to
US for Ph. D (better understanding of diseases...), and how I made up my
mind to be back to clinic. For the third time, I focused on how much
clinical experience I have accumulated since 2007 when I started OB.

Was asked why doing quite a few OB in diff sepcialty(4 OBs so far,2 OBs
coming, written in CV):
Making sure IM is my interest,keep updating my clinical knowledge etc.

Critical and longest part: was tested for 6 clinical cases by these 3
physicians. All cases are in the context of sign-out, call for consult,
nurse came and asked what to do... I was lucky as I just took Step 3. I do
not have any clinical experience since graduation, and I rushed to step 3
with only one month intensive study. I might fail step 3, but I would not
make it if I had not prepared for step 3. Step 3 is the step to test that we
must think, judge, and manage patients like a clinician.

Then 2 conferences for 2 hours. Sitting there. Did not ask any question, and
did not fall asleep either.

Then we all went to see coordinator to say good-bye, and was told to wait
for news. The PD came in suddenly, and put her hand on my shoulder: come
with me...

My suggestion:
I encourage everyone to study Step 3 as soon as possible. Interview
questions are relatively easy to prepare, but clinical judgement is hard to
learn quickly.

Stay in touch with friends at your medical school. If you are not a grad
from BMU or SMU like me, it's nowhere to find the right person to sign,to
seal...Then the yummy pie would be gone without even tasting it.

Thanks for all my friends in this forum. I haven't had time to catch up yet,
but I will.

God bless everyone.
