Not really. The point of these secondaries is what things have happened in your life, whether in a broad or narrow context, and see what actions you have taken say about your personal characteristics / attributes and and your fitness for being a medical student or physician. Theoretical prompts, with the common exception of "where do you see yourself in 10 years?", dont show any evidence of these traits, just your say so. And if you say "well I dont really have any personal stories" that itself tells me you dont have sufficient introspection needed. BTW, the "where do you see yourself" question is often so poorly answered students many who now claim to want to be a primary care physician yet has no activities to show any evidence of thatDo all secondaries have personal examples in them? Are there ever any successful secondaries that don't incorporate personal stories, such as the more theoretical prompts?
When answering a question such as “what do you consider the role of the physician?”, at the outset, you may want to state your views on the issue. For example, you might say something like “the principal role of a physician is to care for patients, and this involves several competencies, including medical expertise, communicator, collaborator . . .” Thereafter, you can leverage these competencies to show why you would be a good fit for the school and what you have done to prepare. For example, I learned the importance of X competency when I . . . I have been developing X competency l through . . .
So really the prompt is “what is the role of a physician and what would make you a good doctor”?
