After our tips and tricks on phone/Skype and in-person interviews posts, it's now time to go over what type of questions and topics you can expect during them. Just like the previous posts, these can also be applied to "normal" job interviews.
Keep in mind that this is not supposed to be an exhaustive list. The interview itself and where the conversation leads will be highly variable based on if you are applying for internships (including specialty internships) or residencies, and who you are meeting with. Each interview will certainly vary between you and the next applicant.
The goal of this post it to share some core questions and topics to allow you to think about how to answer them. If you're applying to residencies, you'll be faced with more pointed questions, since a program will have to decide if you're "worth" the three years of investment into your training.
