MedStar Georgetown University Hospital - New Grad Summer 2013

  1. I just applied over the weekend, took my Battery Test. Anyone else apply? I'm from Mass and anxiously waiting my decision (which may not be for a month) but that's okay.

    I did too. Did your application status change?

    Yeah, now it says something about reviewing your resume. Hopefully we find out soon. But I doubt it will be before the application is taken down

    I applied for the new grad program for the Spring 2013 (starting in February). Just a warning, it might be a while before they get back to you. They send you the battery test shortly after you send in your online application if you meet the basic requirements. Only after the application closed online did they start sending out emails for the next stage of the application process, which is the application packet (transcripts, resume, cover letter, references, etc). I would recommend getting your application packet ready now if you took the battery test, that way if you move on to the next stage you can be one of the first application packets they see. Once you send in an application packet you will probably get an interview and they are pretty good about calling you shortly after the interview if you get the job Good luck!

    @Terps, the wait is the struggle but thank you for your input. Four more days for the application to be closed. I hope we all get in. I'm starting to get my things together so i dont find myself in a mess.

    I applied the first day it went up. Incidentally I was on their website and saw it. I was excited to apply for my very first professional job but now the wait is on...my support to everyone who applied!!!

    Can someone tell me abou the test battery? Was it a med surg type of exam? i hv taken other test in the past but it was a bunch of applied math type questions, the kind they ask u to fill in the next set of sequence numbers stuff like that and it was easy

    @sharon2012rn, the test is not like a medsurg exam. Its more like a lifestyle exam. For example, what would you do if you did not like someone at your work or if someone was treating you badly at your work place how would you handle the situation. I guess it kinda helps tell them the person you are although i doubt someone can know a person through a written test.

    It was a behavioral type exam like th above post noted> What would you situations for example how would you respond to a dissatisfied patient etc. It focuses on conflit resolution a lot too. Good Luck!!!
