Dressing on an Interview

  1. Wear clothing in which you feel comfortable, in a professional sense that is.
  2. Wear colors that look professional—tangerine, fuschia, lemon yellows and lime greens, or their equivalents, are out.  You don’t want to be remembered for your fashion statement or lack thereof.
  3. Be well-pressed.  Dry cleaners can press and box shirts so that they travel well.  Use an iron or hang your clothes in a steamy bathroom to help the wrinkles fall-out. 
  4. Use lint brushes or tape to catch fuzz or stray hair.
  5. Do not wear athletic shoes.  Make time to polish your shoes (unless of course, they are suede). 
  6.  Make time for haircuts.  Don’t “mousse abuse.”  Hair should be neat and clean.
  7. Women, you don’t necessarily need to pull long hair up and in a bun to look professional, particularly if it is not the way you typically wear your hair.
  8. One earring is enough for any ear.  
  9.  Cologne/perfume should be subtle…you should not leave a vapor trail.  The rule of thumb is that you should not be able to smell whatever scent you applied, on yourself.
  10. Nails should be clean and short.  If you must wear nail polish it should be clear or pastel.

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.
