After successfully completing four years of medical school, students must enter a residency program in the specialty field you wish to pursue. For Sim Hoffman, it was important to find a program that would help him advance his knowledge and understanding of radiology. In order to land in the residency program that is best for you, you have to undergo an interview, much like the interview, you had to partake in when applying to medical school.
The interview process for each
residency program is highly evaluative in nature and is extremely
important in the selection process. Medical students need to recognize
the importance of the interview and follow these rules if they wish to
succeed and land the residency of their dreams.
- Dig deep and clearly convey who you are and what you know about the program. Those in the role of decision maker are looking for candidates that will help them achieve their own goals while finding success in the program.
- Your first impression can make or break you. To make a good first impression, you need to arrive early to your interview and be well-dressed and impeccably groomed. Look each interview in the eye and shake hands properly.
- Make yourself noticeable and stand out from the rest of the crowd. Be sure to discuss your remarkable accomplishments and talk about your unique strengths and strong qualities.
