Volunteers needed: Mock residency interviewers
Practice makes perfect. The AMA International Medical Graduates (IMG) Section needs your help with its Mock Residency Interview Program (MRIP). Would you like to help a future resident practice his or her interview skills?
If you are a practicing physician or a resident or fellow, consider volunteering about an hour of your time to help a medical graduate who is waiting to be matched this season. Register online (AMA member login required) to volunteer. You will be matched to a medical graduate who has a scheduled residency program interview in the near future.
Interviews can be conducted via Skype, telephone or face-to-face (if logistically possible), based on your schedule. Visit the AMA's MRIP Web page to view the guidelines and sample questions.
If you have any questions, email email@example.com or call J. Mori Johnson of the AMA at (312) 464-5678.
