WORKSHOPS

Interview Prep - Part 1

This workshop is designed to remind you of all the things you know about interviewing but sometimes forget in the moment. We’ll talk about how to prep for virtual interviewing, how to answer the basic questions (“Tell me about yourself?”) to sound polished and prepared, yet not canned, and how to be ready to ask intelligent, thoughtful questions of the interviewer. Because this workshop is designed to be a discussion, we are offering it at several different times to allow you to attend a time that best works with your schedule while still allowing you to participate. Please view the google calendar to view the dates, times, and access the ZOOM link.

Interview Prep - Part 2

This workshop focuses specifically on interview preparation for health professional school programs. We will discuss how to approach the MMI and ethical questions, how to strategically prepare for a variety of interview styles, and how to appropriately follow-up after an interview has taken place. Because this workshop is designed to be a discussion, we are offering it at several different times to allow you to attend a time that works with your schedule while still allowing you to participate. Please view the google calendar to view the dates, times, and access the ZOOM link.

GROUP INTERVIEW and MMI PRACTICE BREAKOUT SESSIONS

During prime interview prep season, we will be hosting these practice sessions. We have found that one of the best ways to prep for MMI questions is to do it as a group. What one person thinks as being a key factor may be something you never considered. Hearing different perspectives and brainstorming issues together will serve you in your own interview. There’s no prep necessary, the discussion leader will provide you with a question, assign you into breakout rooms and allow time for you to practice. We will then meet back as a group to discuss. Each session will be different questions. Feel free to attend as often as you feel necessary. Please view the google calendar to access the ZOOM link.
