Customer Reviews
The Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) has become the preferred interview format at many health professions programs and medical schools. Applicants seeking admission to these schools face considerable anxiety preparing for these interviews because of a lack of resources available for guidance. Our detailed advice, based on evidence from research in the field and perspectives of admissions faculty, will provide you with the insiders' perspective. Inside-<br /><br />How can you best prepare for the MMI? What is required to deliver a winning interview performance? <br />The MMI was developed to measure specific non-cognitive qualities that schools have deemed important. What are these qualities, and how can students emphasize them during interviews?<br />Which behaviors, attitudes, and answers are prized by interviewers? <br />In one study, 10% of interviewees rated the MMI as worse than the traditional interview. What were their concerns?<br />At one school, 12% of interviewed candidates received a "Do Not Recommend" rating each year. What are the behaviors and attitudes that lead schools to reject applicants?<br />What is "assessor fatigue," and how can it affect your MMI score?<br />Your interview score will depend heavily on your communication skills. What are the common communication problems encountered during the MMI?<br />How can you use the limited time that you have at each station to deliver memorable and impressive responses that stand out?<br />Includes sample answers to MMI questions and advice to help you avoid common mistakes<br /><br />Utilizing a unique combination of evidence-based advice and an insiders' perspective, this book will help you achieve your ultimate goal.

Customer Reviews
<p><b>A brilliant and courageous doctor reveals, in gripping accounts of true cases, the power and limits of modern medicine.</b></p><p>Sometimes in medicine the only way to know what is truly going on in a patient is to operate, to look inside with one's own eyes. This book is exploratory surgery on medicine itself, laying bare a science not in its idealized form but as it actually is -- complicated, perplexing, and profoundly human. </p><p>Atul Gawande offers an unflinching view from the scalpel's edge, where science is ambiguous, information is limited, the stakes are high, yet decisions must be made. In dramatic and revealing stories of patients and doctors, he explores how deadly mistakes occur and why good surgeons go bad. He also shows us what happens when medicine comes up against the inexplicable: an architect with incapacitating back pain for which there is no physical cause; a young woman with nausea that won't go away; a television newscaster whose blushing is so severe that she cannot do her job. Gawande offers a richly detailed portrait of the people and the science, even as he tackles the paradoxes and imperfections inherent in caring for human lives.</p><p>At once tough-minded and humane, <i>Complications</i> is a new kind of medical writing, nuanced and lucid, unafraid to confront the conflicts and uncertainties that lie at the heart of modern medicine, yet always alive to the possibilities of wisdom in this extraordinary endeavor.</p><p><i>Complications </i>is a 2002 National Book Award Finalist for Nonfiction.</p>
