It’s getting close to your medical school interviews interviews, and you want to be your most prepared. You’ve been looking at a lot of sample interview questions, and you’ve even spent time looking through what other people say about interviewing at a particular school, when — Yikes! — you stumble across this question:
“What’s the most significant problem in health care and what would you do about it?”
To answer this question effectively, you’ll need some resources to help out.
Need A Quick Fix?
If you’re on your way out the door to your interview, you can get a quick primer on topics in U.S. Health Care by doing a google news search (news.google.com, and then search for “health care”). At the bottom of the search page you’ll find a convenient “email alert” link to make it easy to stay up to date on current health care news.
You can get a nice overview of healthcare topics by going to The Economist website (in case you’ve never heard of The Economist, it’s a news magazine) and looking through “Topics A-Z” for health care. Here’s a link to the letter H.
Got Extra Time?
There are several great books on the topic of U.S. Health Care. You can delve into the library, or take a look at Amazon for current recommendations.
