- why do you want to be a doctor?
-Did anyone you know influence your choice of career?
- Do you have family members who are doctors? What do they think of the field?
- Which field of medicine are you interested in?
- Where do you plan to practice?
-What are your goals in medicine?

These are some pretty typical questions along with...

-Would you perform an abortion if a patient asked you to?
-Do you think you could adjust to the more rural/village areas and practice there?
-How would you inform people in rural areas about family planning?


Don't worry much about the interview, it's generally just to get to know you and usually isn't a very large deciding factor in the admissions process. As long as you show up, say something semi-coherent and semi-intelligible, you'll be fine.

Nice one medgrunt and u r absolutely right, interview is just a formality. U just have to show up at the right time and show some confidence.
