University Of Ottawa Mock Interviews 2016

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!


Congratulations on receiving an interview! The first year medical students at the University of Ottawa will be hosting mock interviews for those who received interview invites. THIS IS STUDENT RUN AND IS NOT AFFILIATED WITH THE FACULTY. This is a tradition that first year medical students do every year.


This year, the first year medical students will be using the mock interviews as a means to fundraise for their class charity, the Pancreatic Cancer Purple Team, based in Ottawa. If you sign-up for a mock interview, we ask that you please bring a $10 cash donation that will be collected when you arrive for your interview. We thank you in advance for helping us to raise money for a great cause!!


Interviews will be traditional style (not MMI) and the panel will consist of 3 medical students. The interview format is a 40 min mock interview and 15-20 min feedbacks from the medical students (1 hour long). They will be held at Roger Guindon [451 Smyth Rd] in Ottawa, between February 12th and February 19th, 2016.


The mock interview specific dates and times (in 1 hour time slots) are as follows:


1) Friday Feb 12th, Time: 14h00-19h00

2) Saturday Feb 13th, Time: 9h00-14h00

3) Tuesday Feb 16th, Time: 16h00-20h00

4) Wednesday Feb 17th, Time: 14h00-19h00

5) Friday Feb 19th, Time: 14h00-19h00


The sign-up sheet (in google doc format) will be made available to you here on Predmed 101 on Sunday, January 31st, 2016 at 18h00! Sign-up will be on a first come, first serve basis.


Link and email address will be provided at that time.


Sign-up information/instructions:


1. Only those invited for interviews at uOttawa are eligible to sign-up.

2. Please sign-up for a time and day that works best for you; slots will fill quickly and changes will likely not be possible.

3. Enter in your first initial and the last four digits of your phone number (e.g. "L4323"); this alphanumeric code will ensure confidentiality.

5. Only sign-up for the language (French or English) that you applied and received an interview.

6. DO NOT delete someone's name under ANY circumstances; we are monitoring edits and you will be removed from the mock interview process if you are found to be doing this.

Thank you and good luck to you all,

Dear Vanessa and Julien,


May I please ask when you will be sending the follow-up instruction emails? I do not live in Ottawa, so I will need to make travel arrangements.


Thank you
