Questions to Ask During a Residency Interview

Medical Residency Application & Interview Preparation Specialists

As part of preparing for the interview process, you should prepare questions that illustrate your own interest in the programs to which you are applying. These questions should fulfil the following pre-requirements:
– They should not be answerable with a simple Google or a check through the program’s website
– They should not lead the interviewer to have any doubts over your own motivations or suitability for the program
– They should show a true fascination with the speciality if possible, and a real desire to make as much of the program as possible
– The ideal question is one which shows an awareness of current issues in Medicine, the specialty in particular, or the geographical area, shows that you have researched it in some detail, and that you are merely looking for some additional detail to go on top of what you have already learnt and taken into account.

Are publications required during training?
What are the teaching/clinical/research opportunities?
What are the population demographics in the area and how does this impact provision of care and learning opportunities in turn?
What hospitals are in the program? I found that X and Y are, but I’ve been informed there are others as well?
