Abstract: Some physicians interviewing for an executive job will encounter the same types of interviews that a physician looking for a clinical job will experience. Typically, at least some elements of the same types of interviews will be given. However, those who desire an administrative position may in addition encounter 1 or more different types of interviews, which are known as the stress, behavioral, and situational interviews. This article describes some characteristics of these interviews, to prepare physicians to do well in these situations.
