1.
Women's healthcare covers many different aspects of care. What is your favorite area to work in?
This question gives you an opportunity to share your preference of where to work as the interviewer gets to know you. If you are experienced in this area, share your favorite thing about women's health. If you are just beginning a career in women's health, share why you chose this specialty.

Darby's Answer #1
"I have always been fascinated with women's health. My favorite part of women's health is maternity care. While there are critical patients and difficult births, at times, the joy of working this specialty area is something I never get too accustomed to experiencing."
Darby's Answer #2
"Note in this answer option that it says 'This will be my first......' Showing confidence in an interview is a great way to have the interviewer remember you. This is important because, most of the time interviewers see more than one candidate before offering the open position to some

"This will be my first job working women's health exclusively, and I am so excited! I know there are many specialty areas in women's health and I look forward to seeing where my current knowledge and skills can be best utilized and built upon."

At Womens College Hospital we value education and are supportive of employees who seek higher education or certifications in their specialty areas. Have you ever thought about continuing your education?
While wanting to continue your education is not a requirement for employment at Womens College Hospital, interviewers often ask this question. Having a desire to continue your education in the healthcare tells the interviewer that you have long-term plans in the industry. Whether you plan on returning to school or not, share your thoughts on what you may choose if you ever change your mind.

Darby's Answer #1
"I initially completed my Associate's degree and planned to go back to school later. I want and need to work, but would love the opportunity to work toward my Bachelor's degree without having to sacrifice my job."
Darby's Answer #2
"I loved nursing school and completed my practical nursing degree. While I realize there are several opportunities for nurses with higher degrees, at this point in my life, I feel content with where I am professionally. It is nice to know that I could explore the option of continuing my education and continue working later on, if my goals change."
3.
A growing area of women's health is mental health wellness. One common condition is postpartum depression. Do you have any experience caring for patients with this diagnosis?
While mental health issues were not focused on as much in years past, today those issues are addressed by all areas of healthcare. With women's health, there are many factors to consider. Post-partum depression affects 1 in 7 women. If you have experience in this area, share it with the interviewer. If you don't, showing an interest in learning is a great way to attract the attention of the interviewer.

Darby's Answer #1
"I have personal experience with post-partum depression. I didn't realize it in the beginning, but after my second child was born, I began to develop the symptoms of PPD. Thankfully those who were closest to me recognized the symptoms and I went to my doctor for treatment. It is a very real, often overlooked condition. I'm glad to know that a facility like Womens College Hospital cares enough to focus on these issues."
Darby's Answer #2
"I worked in an OB/GYN clinic for a while and one of the most common complaints of patients who had new babies was the symptoms of post-partum depression. Honestly, if I had not worked in that clinic, I may not have realized how often patients experience this and how detrimental it can be if left untreated."
4.
Will you share one of your most difficult cases and how you handled the stress of it?
Stressful situations arise in any job. While the interviewer is asking you to share a difficult case, what he is looking for is how you handled the situation. Were you able to stay cool under pressure? Is the stress of that situation something that you have carried with you? Your answer will tell the interviewer about your coping mechanisms.

Darby's Answer #1
"One of the most difficult cases I ever worked was a labor and delivery case. The baby died prior to birth and the mother had to deliver the baby naturally. It was my first time to work a delivery case when we knew that the baby had died. I understand now the reasons for it, but at the time, it was very difficult for me to process."
Darby's Answer #2
"The most difficult case I ever worked was not a women's health case, but an ER case. We had a case of a motor vehicle accident that was caused by a drunk driver. The accident involved several cars and the majority of the injured were brought to our ER. There were three fatalities. It was such a senseless tragedy. I dealt with a lot of frustration because I knew the accident could have been prevented."
5.
Specializing in women's healthcare, Womens College Hospital takes care of many obstetric patients of all ages. Have you ever dealt with pediatric patients (16 or under) who were referred for obstetric care?
While obstetric care is a specialty in itself, caring for younger mothers presents even more risks because of reproductive systems may not be completely mature, lack of education, etc. Share any experience, if any, you have in this area.

Darby's Answer #1
"I do have experience working with obstetric patients of varying ages, including teenagers. The rate of young teen pregnancy is very alarming to me. Many of the young women I cared for did not have much of a support system after delivery. We always scheduled appointments for the mom and baby before being discharged from the hospital for a check-up and for education classes to assist the new moms as they transitioned into the role of caregiver."
Darby's Answer #2
"One of my first delivery cases was with a 15 yr. old mom. She did not have any family support and chose to give her baby up for adoption. It was, understandably, a very emotional case. I can't help but believe if she had been a little older or had some type of support system, she would have made a different decision."
