Two interviews

I have two interviews this week on the same day. One is a second interview with a hospital and the other is a first interview later that afternoon with a different hospital (new grad program). I'm wondering if I am offered the position for the first job while I'm there, do I accept or do I tell them I have another interview later that day? I don't think they'll offer me the job while I am there, but I would like to be mentally prepared just in case. I am leaning on just accepting it and later declining if I recieve an offer from the other hospital since that is ideally the one I would rather be at.

Thanks for the help!

You can just tell them you appreciate the prompt offer but would like to think about it and get back with them the next day. That'll give you a chance to go to the other interview and see if you even like the other place first. Just be sure to give them a realistic timeline of when you will let them know about the offer and you should be fine.
