How to get most out of your USCE during the interview
Whether your observership/ externship was in an Ivy League university Hospital with a
world renowned physician or with a neighborhood primary care physician, the thing which
matters the most is how you sell it during the interview.
You have to tell them that you experience was great, show them how excited and interested
you are about it. Tell them you have learned a lot about US healthcare system (this is the
point which really matters) eg how the patients are seen in office setting or how rounds are
conducted in the hospital. How the team of residents work with the attending and consultants, how the pts are admitted /discharged from the hospital. You can mention about things like
benefits of multidisciplinary rounds. Use of EMR. Your experience of case presentations by
the residents, morning reports, noon conferences, grand rounds etc. Furthermore , things
like emphasis on evidence based medicine, hand hygiene and compliance with HIPPA rules.

earlier during the day.
