2009 ACAP Mock Interview Report

Dear President Zhang,

With strong support from Dr. Eng, our attending interviewers and ACAP administrative staff, the ACAP Student, Resident and Fellow Committee (SRF) successfully held the 2009 mock interview on Sat. Sept 26, 2009, for 22 Chinese Medical Graduates (CMGs). Some of them came from California, Maryland, Massachusetts, and New Jersey. The session started at 8:15am and was followed by 2 and half hours of group discussion led by me. Our attending interviewers ably covered Internal Medicine, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Anesthesiology, and Pathology. Each CMG has been interviewed and consulted by 3 or more interviewers in the specialty(ies) of his or her interest.

On behalf of the SRF of ACAP and participating CMGs, I would like to thank Drs. Wlody, Alchiyib, Chambers, Comrie, Gu, Ma, Siguenza, and Tan for their unconditional support! We are also grateful to our administrative staff, Alex and Jackie, and volunteering CMGs, Drs. Yijun Li, Xin Wang and Shuang Fu.

Many of the CMGs also expressed their great appreciation to the devoted resources and efforts of ACAP and participating parties. They felt the program significantly improved, or changed, their interview skills.

I found, and took full responsibility of, the problem of communication between various parties, which was exemplified by scheduling grids. In the future, this will be improved by earlier and complete communication with interviewers. I also apology to participating interviewers for not providing minimal hospitality, such as some snacks and coffee. It’ll be better next time!

Thank you all for your constant support!
