As part of SAMA’s support to physicians applying for residency, SAMA held an interview skills workshop on September 27th 2015 at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’hare.

The workshop was attended by 33 physicians applying for residency. It started with oral presentations then a Q&A session. Following that, one to one mock interviews were held. At the end of each mock interview, applicants were given immediate feedback regarding their interview skills & advice on how to improve them.
