Medical school interview

Virtually all medical schools prior to making an offer of acceptance require an in-person interview. The interview provides a final screening and evaluation to the admissions committee. Since this is a people-oriented occupation, they will be checking out your interpersonal and communications skills. They will also probe your knowledge of current medical issues, their school in particular and ask you to elaborate on items listed on your application.

The interview gives you an opportunity to have personal contact with admissions officers, to communicate your motivation and commitment to a career in medicine (very important, due to the length of training required) and clarify any information on your application. You also will have an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the school.
