CWB: MD Series: Residency Interviewing Skills
1373 Grant St. Denver, Tuesday, September 30, 2014; 5:30pm - 8pm
Colorado Welcome Back, a program of Spring Institute for Intercultural Learning, helps foreign-trained healthcare professionals re-establish careers in healthcare in Colorado. We seek to build a bridge between the pool of internationally-trained health workers living in our state and the need for linguistically and culturally competent healthcare providers. This program is for people with healthcare training from other countries who have moved to Colorado and would like to work in a healthcare setting again.
This workshop covers all of the general types of questions and interactions that can come up on interview day. This is not specific to a particular residency or specialty, but is designed to give a good foundation for the in-depth preparation you will need to do once you are scheduled for an interview. The workshop is a group setting, so participants can learn from each other and share experiences.
With questions, please contact Educational Case Manager, Ben Harris at email@example.com.
