Materials to have on an Interview

1. Copies of your CV, Personal Statement, application, board scores, transcript and an extra picture. Most programs will not ask for an additional copy of your documents however it does not hurt to have them with you.
2. Material obtained about the program to review the night before interviewing.
3. Note pad/portfolio. This will be helpful to write impressions immediately after the interview, because much of what you hear will quickly be forgotten. Write the interviewers’ name, the names of the residents who took you to lunch/dinner, etc. for thank-you notes later. It is also very thoughtful to thank the program coordinator/secretary.
4. A good pen.
5. Money (parking, food, etc.).
6. Women: extra pair of pantyhose
7. Small snack - be prepared for a wide variety of questions. If the interviewer asks you about yourself, tell those things that relate to the situation, your personal background, education, goals, etc. Generally speaking, inform without boasting.

The United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) is a three-step examination for medical licensure in the United States. The Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) and the National Board of Medical Examiners (NBME) sponsors USMLE.
The Three Steps of the USMLE
Step 1 tests the important concepts of basic sciences basic to the practice of medicine. It also places special emphasis on principles and mechanisms underlying health, disease, and modes of therapy. Step 1 ensures mastery of the sciences that provide a foundation for the safe and competent practice of medicine. It also tests the scientific principles required for maintenance of competence through lifelong learning.
Step 2 CK tests the medical knowledge, skills, and understanding of clinical science essential for the provision of patient care under supervision. It also includes emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention. Step 2 CK ensures that due attention is devoted to principles of clinical sciences and basic patient-centered skills.
Step 2 CS tests your capacity to practice and provide good medical service in real-life situations. It also tests your communication skills.
Step 3 tests your medical knowledge and understanding of biomedical and clinical science essential for the unsupervised practice of medicine. Step 3 provides a final assessment of physicians assuming independent responsibility for delivering general medical care.
