Preparing for Anesthesiology Residency Interviews?
Both Excited and Terrified??   You are in the right place!

Anesthesiology residency interviews are a critical component of selecting candidates for residency programs. During the interview process, applicants can showcase their skills and experiences, while program directors assess their potential fit for the program. 

In this episode, I share the five most common questions you will get in your interview, strategies on how to answer those questions, and having the right mindset to secure a residency spot. 


[01:24] The right mindset when walking into the interview

[03:10] The five most common questions in the interview

[03:13] 1# Why anesthesia?

[05:29] 2# Tell me more about your research project

[06:20] 3# Where do you see yourself five years from now?

[09:29] 4# Tell me about your weaknesses

[12:17] 5# Any question for me?

Notable quotes:

“The right mindset in any interview is believing in yourself because if you don’t believe in yourself, there is no way you can convince any director that you are fit for the program.”

“In the interview, always bring energy and enthusiasm.”
