Medical School Interview Questions
Question 1 of 37

If you could meet anyone in the history of medicine, who would you choose and why?

How to Answer
This is more of a personal interest question, and you really cannot give a wrong answer here. Think back to any of the' founding fathers' (and mothers!) of medicine. Who has a story that resonates with you the most? What did they overcome, and how can you relate? What did they discover / create / invent that you admire so much? It's also a great idea to think of the most burning question you would have for that individual. Be sure to add passion to your answer so that the interviewers can sense a true interest.

Answer Example
"If I could meet anyone in the history of medicine, I would go back to the very beginning and meet Hippocrates. I find it fascinating that he was the first person to ever believe that disease and death were not a result of the anger of gods. I would ask him what that first conversation sounded like...when he first said to others, that disease is not caused by superstitious belief. He would have had to have faced so many roadblocks, yet, he continued to believe in his work."
