Default Medical questions during Interviews

Hey guys,

I wanted to ask about the concept of medical question during interviews. What would a person expect during interview in term of medical questions? How to get prepared for these? For example: Does reading differential diagnosis about different symptoms before going into interview help? What about disease management?

Thanks for your support and suggestion.

Based on friends' experiences in the past years, interviews are mainly about you as a person. The only medical questions I keep hearing about is "Tell me about an interesting case you saw", which is not about testing your knowledge, I don't think anyone does that - We did the USMLEs after all
