KUMC anyone?

Posted

Hello to all. I am new to this forum and boy, am I glad to have found you. I am interviewing for Kansas U program in a couple weeks, this is my first, and as many of you have experienced, I feel so nervous I am bordering on delirium. I have been oscillating between intermittent nausea and needing a valium or BOTH! Have read the interview tips, but few specific to this program. Any advice would be great. Thanks.:rotfl:

Good Luck with your interview! I interviewed and KUMC last year. Staff was very nice. Interview was pretty straight forward. Your meeting is with 2 faculty CRNA's, 2 Academic instructors and an MDA. They review your CV and grades. They give you a set of hemodynamic numbers and from there you must decide and explain what kind of vasopressors or vasodilators you would provide to your patient. A 15 minute interview followed by a tour of the school - thats it! I didnt get into KUMC last year. . . letter read something like . . . although your were highly qualified, you were not selected for a seat. No big deal, because I got into another CRNA program. So, I guess the moral of the story is dont apply to just one school or at least pin your hopes on one school because your setting yourself up for failure. Apply to several schools and just pray that you get in.

Thanks for the quick response...I figured it be something of that sort, given the list of competencies they send with the interview letter. Just helps to know what to look for. No worries, I can't put all my eggs into one basket, am applying to other schools as well. Which CRNA school are you at now? Thanks again.
