    I dont know about yours. But MOST of the the questions asked in my interview revolved around how i would deal with the families, especially in emergency situations. I wasnt prepped for that topic much (thinking back i should have been, stupid me). Hope your interview went well!!

    I enjoyed reading this forum as I have a second interview for a peds placement in a new graduate residency program. I'm trying to prepare for the interview and am totally prepared for the behavioral type questions such as "name a time when you experienced an unsatisfied patient". Does anyone have tips on how to prepare for the "what would you do if...." questions like in emergency situations or how to deal with families. I don't have much experience in peds inpatient but have TONS of volunteer experience with kids. I love kids and am totally excited about getting an interview for my dream job as a new grad!
