I'm preparing for interviews right now, and one question that I'm wondering about is this one: What most recent advances in medicine have occurred that you believe will have the greatest impact on how you will practice medicine? I speak about being interested in primary care, so I want to choose something that would be relevant to my interest in primary care. Would it be OK to discuss the human genome? I took a genomic medicine class last semester, and we talked a lot about genome-wide association studies which aim to find links between certain diseases with certain alleles. I know this is in its infancy, and it is also not very well-established, but if it were, it would be a huge help in preventative medicine. Would this be a good topic to bring up for this question? I was also thinking of talking about gene therapy using CRISPR. CRISPR is quickly developing and allowing precise modifications to specific genes. Would this be OK to bring up? What kind of medical advances do medical schools expect interviewees to discuss? Should I discuss face transplants? Or prosthetic limbs? Or immunotherapy? What would you talk about in your interview if asked this question? Thanks!
