Profile Questions and Answers
Question Answer  
Why medicine? What is your story?I chose medicine primarily because of the influence from my family: my mum is a nurse, my uncle a doctor and another uncle a pharmacist. Living with them virtually all my life, I knew no other profession than a profession in medicine. Also, I've always wanted to affect people in a positive way and I think medicine provides me with the opportunity to do so.read other replies on this topic
Are you in any special circumstances? Anything unique?In Ghana where I school, it's very difficult, if not impossible, obtaining admission to the medical school without haven taken Biology in high school. With a direct admission into med school after high school final exams and the numerous applications into the few med schools, my chances were slim. However in the end, I'm the only one admitted in my year group who didn't take a biology course in high school.read other replies on this topic
What was the hardest part in preparing for med school?The hardest part was preparing for written and oral interviews. The range of questions was very broad and I was to take the exams with the very best of students in the country. It was hard for me because I was on vacation outside the country, had the notice for the interviews quite late and had to come back and prepare for it.read other replies on this topic
