    (URGENT!) Gulf Medical University - PharmD Interview questions

    Advertisements



    Hi everyone,

    I have applied for the PharmD program at Gulf Medical University for the year 2011-2012.

    They might call me for an interview by next week.

    I would like to know the kind of questions that they can ask and if anyone who has given the interview already can post the questions they were asked here.

    Any help will be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Not answering your questions, but maybe helpful for your interview: There is an academician here in my country which is head of Behavioral Sciences.. or something I remember the "Behavioral" part of the name of the department of the university.. anyways.. he is an expert on body language and effects of colours.. those are what he said just the other day in a tv program on a question what makes an interview better for the applicant:

    1) Dress a nice and formal suit (with jacket).
    2) As colour choice, use blue or gray, with a white shirt inside.
    3) Shake the hand strong and firmly with your full hand, but dont squeeze very hard... during hand-shaking look directly right in the middle of his/her eyes.
    4) Smile.
    5) Dont look down.. your eyes must be always at the same level.. and frequently have eye contact.
    6) Dont touch every now and then your nose, neck, chest etc..
    3) Talk with little pauses, this emphasises your words and makes it more important and understandable.. dont hurry in your talk.
    4) Create a balance between company (in your case, school) and yourself.. be demanding, yes, but also express how you will be good for them as well.. (in your situation how you are dedicated and passionate and will be a proud for them in future for instance.. I added this )

    There were other stuff as well but I forgot..

    Also would you like to check this thread.. in its 3rd page there is something about interview.. but I suggest you to read all of the posts in this thread, my dear:

    Thanks for your tips..

    And yes that post was by myself but those are interview questions for the MBBS program and I am now applying for the PharmD program so I reckon the questions will be different.

    Hey bptgmu,

    Sorry for the late reply.. I was actually out of town as I had gone to Gulf Medical University.. I have been accepted to the PharmD program..

    Overall, I think that the uni's standards are pretty high compared to the other uni's in that area...

    I personally liked the university and even the course seems pretty good

    If anything else, feel free to ask..

    hey guys !
    i got accepted to both sharjah uni and Gulf . B.S physical therapy . still didnt decide which uni to fully register in.
    their cources are very similar . But gulf med. has more hands on experience ,like alot of training . sharjah focuses on theory more . Also sharjah's crazy funding (their fees is exactly double the fees of gulf) provides high tech candian certified labs unlike gulfs which are acceptable .
    I have noticed that the G.M.U study plan has no X-*** reading courses which is just crazy ! and they dont have histology nor pediatric training as a separate curriculum hour . this has got me concerned ,so i will be in contact with them soon . And Oh! they are opening a doctor of physical therpay program and a new building soon . that gotta tell u somthing ...
    Pharm.D student! sorry i got sidetracked . duuude chelax i didnt even go home to prepare for the interview .
    The Dene of admission is the one who will conduct the interview . He is a very down to earth Dr. . thats what i love aboout Indians; no matter how significant they are ,you always get a very -at ease - vibe from them .
    If you suck at one subject dont go all cramming for it . just politely tell him you would like to start with a subject ur good at . am presuming its chemistry. I suck at phys. like really suck . SO when he started asking phy. i asked to start wed bio and chem first.
    He did ask aloooot of bio questions ,more than chem . Acually in chem he only asked me to name 2 oragnic acids ,and 2 non-organic acid ! I know right?!!
    But bio he asked me to explain why and how blood is pumped through the heart in details ,functions of different hormones ,Types of vaccines .

    But the good thing is ;it is not somthing he like planned previously with a specific questioning style . If you are smart enough you can detour the flow of the conversation to you favor . He even asked me about my hobbies . so yeah dont worry ,its nothing too fancy at all ,they just wanna make sure you are not a complete loon !
    best of luck .
    lilly
