A face-to-face interview is the toughest part of getting you a job. Further, if you are from a science or a medical background, the situation becomes worst. Science is a vast subject and you need to cover a great deal of topics before going for an interview. If you are a medical professional or a doctor then, you must know that a doctor’s job involves competence, technical expertise, integrity and social ethics. Therefore, a medical job interview is considered to be one of the toughest job interviews.
This article covers a few questions that are generally asked in course of a medical interview. You need to go through this list and prepare potential, impressive answers for them. The first question is the most commonly asked questions. I have mentioned an answer to it.
7. The day before your final exam, one of your family members has expired. How will you deal with this situation? How will you manage your studies in such a crisis?
8. A young woman suffering from AIDS comes over to your clinic and requests you not to inform her spouse about it. What will you do?
9. A 7 year old child is suffering from cancer. The kid’s life expectancy is approximately five months. How will you tell her parents about it?
So, these were some of the question you may encounter on the road to become a doctor. You should answer them in a composed manner. And remember, besides being a doctor, you are a human too! So keep up the dignity of this post.

The more rehearsed you are, the better - though you don't want to appear robotic or scripted. Try to prepare yourself for the interview by getting to know some of the most common questions, and rehearsing the answers out loud.
Some common interview questions that you can expect are:
