    My questions were pretty normal. Stressful situations, how did u react? How do you handle stress? Why L&D? How have you communicated with doctors? Any time when you had a touchy situation in dealing with doctors?

    No matter what the questions, answer honestly. Just be yourself and express your commitment and passion for the specialty. And do send a thank you card, and be persistent. I cant stress that enough. Good luck!

    Yes, my interview is tomorrow. I'll be practicing and researching questions all day!

    For the stress questions, I am planning on saying that it's important to stay focused on my patients and priorities. If I need a minute to myself, I'll take it. Sometimes just that minute is all I need to refocus.

    What do you think?

    Thanks for the info and I will definitely post back and let you know how it goes!

    Good, but saying you will take a minute on your own is rather scary when you have a baby crowning! Find an example of a stressful time and what quick thinking you did to deal with it or solve the problem.

    Okay thanks! I was thinking more about stress with co-workers/doctors/patients, etc. Not emergency situations. But I will come up with an example to describe it! Thanks!

    Have examples for all possible situations!!! That way you don't seem stumped and you don't panic!

    The only reason I say emergency situations is because thats what a stress question was based about for me--- for being a new grad in L&D how would I handle the stress of a mom/baby suddenly going bad? What would I do? Emotionally how would I react to the stress? What situations have been stressful that I've handled? I also got the "How do you handle communicating with an MD who isn't that kind either?"
