    Without the search function I haven't been able to find out if anyone has posted the list of 12 standard questions (from which 4 are picked) for the standard part of Iowa's interview?

    If anyone has it, would you please post it here? Thanks! :)

    I dont have the whole list but the two most popular that I found from the interview section and that I was asked were:

    Why medicine?(big suprise)
    If you had a friend that had a drinking problem what would you do?

    I couldn't find it either, but here are the questions:

    1. What acheivement in the last 4 years are you most proud of?
    2. Why medicine?
    3. Tell us about a time you went above and beyond the call of duty and wht you learned from that.
    4. What would you do if one of your colleagues had a drinking problem?
    5. What is the one quality you would look for in a physician for one of your family members or yourself?
    6. When was a time you showed true caring and compassion?
    7. Tell about a time you asked for help. How did you ask?
    8. How has being a patient affected your impression of medicine?
    9. How do you handle stress?
    10. Tell us about a time in your life that was influential.
    11. If not medicine?
    12. Aspect of being a physician you least look forward to.

    Good luck. Tell em gdbaby LOVED it there!
