Question 2 of 30
How do you handle conflict in the work place?
Professional Answers Preview
"My style of conflict management can best be described as upfront, yet - I swiftly move on. In the five years that I have worked for my current facility, I have only come across one instance of conflict. One of the nurses did not show up for their shift, so I was forced to cover their shift, resulting in me staying late to find someone to fill in. Because of this, I missed my daughter's dance recital. I was upset about it but wanted to do my part as a ​shift supervisor. The next day, the delinquent employee came in and didn't say a word. He didn't apologize to me or thank me for my time. I approached him and told him how his actions impacted my day. He did not respond how I wanted; however, I let it go after I said my part. You cannot change the actions of others but you have to take responsibility for how you handle your side."
"The only way to handle conflict in the workplace is respectfully, tactfully and away from the patients."
When you spend so many waking hours in the workplace, a conflict between co-workers can happen. How you handle conflict is what the interviewer would like to know more about. This is not an opportunity to start venting about your current workplace culture. The interviewer wants to see that you will take accountability for conflict whether the occurrence is considered your fault, or not. Handling workplace conflict tactfully, and with grace, should be the only option. Give a clear example of a time when you professionally handled workplace conflict.

Question 5 of 30
Are you able to work the night shift?
Professional Answers Preview
"At this point, I wouldn't be able to work night shift but if you would be able to give me one week's​ notice to re-arrange a few things I could be able to work the night shift."
"My work schedule is quite​ flexible. A weeks notice would be helpful so that I can coordinate childcare for my daughter."
Don't consider the interview a bust if you can't tell the interviewer that you are ready to start on the night shift. The position you are interviewing for might be for the day shift but the interviewer wants to see if covering for other people are a possibility. If you can flip flop you schedule, let the interviewer know. If you are unable to work a night shift, be honest, and explain why. Let the interviewer know if you could you pick up a night shift every once in a while.

There are three main reasons for my choice of becoming an anesthesiologist assistant. The first is that my greatest interest and favorite subject is anesthesiology. I am intensely interested in the processes involved in placing a patient under anesthesia and the pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics of drugs that put people to sleep. Throughout my academic career, any time I was required to describe my ideal future career, I discussed the role of an anesthetist. My experiences volunteering in the DOSA/PACU units and shadowing in the anesthesiology/ surgery department have been some of my most memorable experiences. I felt the most comfortable in this environment, and could imagine myself working as an anesthetist every day. Secondly, I am passionate about helping others, and I know that as an anesthesiologist assistant, I will be helping people every day. Assisting others is very important to me, and I always hope for people to leave me better than they were when they were first in my care. I have always been responsible and dependable, even as a child, helping my little brother in school and caring for my family when sick. This trend has continued throughout my life, as I have helped others through volunteering, mentoring, and being there for them when they need me. Lastly, I desire to work on a collaborative team contributing to the improvement of human health. The responsibilities of the anesthetist are numerous, and working with the anesthesia care team is crucial to ensure patient safety, achieve benevolent patient outcomes, and minimize complications. I enjoy working with others, and have gained experience in this through completing research with the biology department, working as an ER scribe and pharmacy tech, and through working in groups in college courses such as biochemistry and virology. My intense dedication and care in everything I do make me an extremely reliable and responsible person, characteristics especially important in an anesthetist.

About Anesthesiologist Assistant

August 17th, 2017

Anesthesiologist assistants are highly skilled health professionals who implement anesthesiology care for patients. They work under the supervision of a licensed anesthesiologist and are involved with the full range of aspects of applying anesthesia to patients, including the calibration of equipment, drawing blood for testing, and evaluating a patient's medical history as it relates to potential complications. Anesthesiologist assistants work in hospitals and medical centers and during normal work hours, though evening and weekend assignments are possible as well. A master's degree in anesthesiology is required, as well as certification.

Job openings for anesthesiologist assistants can be found on the websites of healthcare companies and medical institutes. Vacancies can also be found through the career centers of universities with anesthesiology programs. The interview process for potential anesthesiologist assistants will focus on your technical knowledge of anesthesiology and your ability to deliver care in an appropriate manner and at the required pace. You'll be assessed on your adaptability and ability to apply new knowledge that you've learned, as well as your ability to communicate and work in a team. Patient safety and learning from real-world clinical situations are key concerns.

To prepare for an interview for anesthesiologist assistants, keep in mind the big impact that you'll have on the safety of patients and what's at risk if you fail. The interviewer(s) will need to know that you can excel on the job. While technical knowledge of anesthesiology is essential, the application of that knowledge in a clinical setting is extremely important. Think about times when you were able to improve patient safety. Also think about how you're able to observe and adapt quickly: what information do you take in, how do you process it, and what do you differently when reacting to that new information? Finally, be prepared to talk about why you're applying to that facility in particular, and show that you're proactive in anticipating needs, such as bringing full documentation of your qualifications—being over-prepared demonstrates your thoroughness and initiative.
