标 题: My iv experience
发信站: BBS 未名空间站 (Thu Nov 13 23:39:14 2008)

After reading snowflakes iv post. I agree a lot with her.

I completed my 2nd iv Wed. The biggest medical center of my state. >85 AMGs.
> 85 patients are white. Around 900 beds, ranked as 7th biggest cardiology
program in volume of US.Only one bad thing about the program--only carry one
fellowship.They only iv 2 people per day. I happened to interview with a
giganic AMG I knew who is from my home school . I am only 1/2 of his height
and maybe 1/5 of his weight;it was kindly of funny that we two walked
together. Because this AMG came from local and all his sisters are all APs
in this hospital. He told me all the iv Qs he knew ahead.

I interviewed with 3 people.

First one: A very nice guy. Started with \"do you have any Q for me?\". Then
only asked my research and visa. I actually met him at the first time in the
elevator(I did not knew he will interview me later, the gaganic AMG had a
nice short talk with him about the plant he was carrying) He was so nice and
even told me what I should talk to the 2nd interviewee. We run of time fast,
PC knocked door 3 times. He eventually let me gone, very pleasant talk
with him.

Sencod one. A type A female. Started with\" tell me about U.\" before I even
seat down.Little inpatient. She started to asked 2nd Q when I took a pause
in the middle of answering my first Q. I finally got a chance to talk about
the topic the first interviewee told me to. Started from there I had no
chance to talk any more. She was so enjoying that topic and kept talking. I
only need to repeat\" cool, wonderful, terrific\". PC only need to knock door
twice this time.

I met PD at end. PD asked me a lot of times \"Any Q for me.\" I only asked him
one because I already asked the first interviewee so many(I feel bad about
it later). He only asked me some research and talked about the local
community.

In the end, PD told me\" You are a good candidate, you have good score and
research. but you are little lack of recent clinical experience.This is my
business card and feel free to contact me if you have any Qs. Hopefully, we
will get another chance to talk about Sushi again.\" I don\'t know how postive
this comment is. I knew they never give prematch. I did not even bother to
ask.

I just send thank you e-mails and cards out. Wait for reply.


One funny story about my iv.

Before I left the hospital, I went to the bathroom and got lost. I need to
go back to the office of PC to pick up my coat.I looked around for 10 mins.
Finally , I saw a guy walking to men\'s bathroom. I run to stop him before he
almost stepped into the bathroom and asked for direction. He took me back
and told me at the end: \"BTW, steps2008(my name was on the stick hanging on
my suit),I am Dr.XXX, chairman of internl medicine, nice to meet you \'\'and
shaked hands with me. I almost pass out.....


I guess I am the first CMG impressed Chairman by doing that, WOW...

我又想起了我第一个面试,我是最早到的,为了弄清哪些名字的发音,就随便截住了一
个人,当问到PD的名字的时候,那个人就说:”I don\'t know how to say it, but it
looks like my name.\"原来他就是PD,我晕。。。。。

Sorry, I tried to post my iv story in such a hurry last night, I made a lot
of mistakes.

Thank you snowflakes. Your story make me LOL. All the best for your other
interviews.

I think the nice programs will friendly interview every interviewee. Even we
feel good about the interview, it dose not mean they feel the same about us
,especially those AMGs dominant programs. My thought is based on the short,
nice talk the AMG had with our first interviewer in the elevator. It was
just too easy for those AMGs to find a topic to please american doctors.

I had the feeling after my interview that those interviewers may pick up
the topics I may like to talk on purpose. The only \"difficult Q\" was \" You
are out of practice for so long, how will you catch it up.\"

To dreamcatchin:

I think you can ask different interviewers the same Qs, it is better than
have nothing to ask. This program I interviewed have very detail information
on their website, plus, they dropped me a big information package the night
before the iv in the hotel. So if I asked the Qs which I can find out the
answer myself, I am afraid it seemed I did not do my homework. However, I
was telling PD " so far I have no more Qs left, I already asked Dr.xxx(first
interviewer) many Qs, I almost left him no chance to ask me Qs."

I have the same feeling too....so even though we finished some IVs, it
really doesn't mean that we are gonna be ranked high at the end because the
program that I like is also a target of other people, which means the
competetion will be higher...

So far, as we go through the process, we should polish ourselves and make
sure we do better on the next IV.
