How to Answer the Question Regarding Specific Clinical Knowledge Which You are Not Sure During Interview?

Please keep in mind, you are interviewing a training position. We don’t expect you can answer medical question like an attending (although it will be a huge plus if you so!. We want to see level appropriate answers. The most important things is not to get the right answer because there is no right or wrong answer in most of the time in medicine. The most important thing is to show your thought process: why I think this way and why I chose this work up/test. Therefore, you should focus on: I will do this… because I think/worried…

Level appropriate means if you have limited clinical experience (fresh graduate, only a few months observership etc), we expect you function as a medical students (means know almost nothing) to tell us a few differential ddx and possible management/work up, very similar as the ones you encountered in your CK exam. If you claim you had lots of experience in the same specialty, we would like to hear more about your thought process and why.
