    skype entrance exam interview for 4 yr MD program

    Hi everyone!!

    Does anyone know what type of questions they ask for the skype entrance exam for Lodz? Are they difficult? And could someone provide me with some examples of the questions they ask?

    Thanks

    Hi,
    Here's an idea of the main questions to keep in mind:

    1) Why do you want to be a doctor? If you know already what you want to specialize in, why that field in particular?

    2) Do you have any experience in the medical field? Are there any doctors in your family? Not having any experience shouldn't be a problem; it's all about your mindset toward the study of medicine.

    3) Have you ever lived/worked in a foreign country or been away from home for an extended period of time? If so, be prepared to give some details. The interviewer will want some assurance that you will be able to survive in Poland for 4 years (it's not that bad once you get here )

    4) A skill-testing question of some sort. For example, mine was to list the diseases associated with smoking. IMPORTANT NOTE: Don't google the question you are asked as the interviewer will be able to hear you typing frantically!

    My interview took about 15 minutes. The interviewer will not want you to waste their time nor will they want to waste your time, so just keep your answers to the point and you'll do fine

    Hi,

    There were two people who interviewed me. One just asked me usual questions like why do I want to be a physician? My experience in medical field. And me being a neuroscience major, asked me questions about Brain and stress related diseases. And the difference between health system here in US and my native country which is Pakistan.
    At the end of my interview with him, he did say though that he will definitely be suggesting me to the admission's committee.

    The other person only asked me course related questions, 3 from bio, 3 from chem and 1 from physics. The test was nothing more than a piece of a cake. Questions like, what is enzyme, what is the function of insulin, what is polymerization reaction? What is pH? What is velocity? What is the difference between electrons and protons.

    Also if you're accepted, would you Mind personal message me?

    Hello,
    I applied from America because I was living there but I am sure it doesn't matter where you apply from as there are students here from all over the world including srilanka, Lebanon. So feel free to apply from wherever you live and you will be fine if you have all the required courses taken

    feel free to ask any questions you may have.
