They wanted an Islamic point of view which says no. They asked a physicians's role in society other than being a doctor. What would you do if a person is stealing. Would you cheat if you see your friend cheating and stuff like that. That's the only info I have to give for now.
Also says they were Islamic sorta people, so they wanted answers conforming to the Islamic code of conduct.October 8th, 2012, 06:45 PM #45
@heartbreak What about the other questions? were they the same in the post quoted above from previous year?October 8th, 2012, 06:51 PM #46
If they ask you about rape, you should say 'yes'
If they ask you about a situation where the woman's life is in danger, you'd have to say 'yes' because that's Pakistani law
If they ask you about a loose character, you'd say 'no'
At least, that's how I'd answer it.October 8th, 2012, 06:54 PM #47October 8th, 2012, 07:19 PM #48
Mine's tomorrow...never been more nervous in life!!! :/October 8th, 2012, 07:49 PM #49October 8th, 2012, 07:58 PM #50
The abstract from the article I had first posted was to give an idea how a child from rape may affect the mental faculties of the mother. And in a Saudi Arabian's doctor's presentation on medical ethics I read that abortion was permitted if it affects the physical as well as mental faculties of the mother. Rape would affect the mental faculties, its a horrible thing. But Im not really trusting this person much because yet another saudi doctor, my father's collegue wrote me answers to a few questions and rendered family planning, vastectomy and tubectomy, as well as oral contraceptives legal :/
How about a simple no. Hell with such a doubtful question.October 8th, 2012, 08:13 PM #51
LOL since when have Saudi doctors become so authentic on mixing Islam with medicine!
I'm gonna ask my cousin if the interviewers are looking for right or wrong answers. Because common sense would say you can say whatever you think is right as long as you can explain why you think so. Just form an opinion of what you think is right and what you can easily defend. And then stick to it. I'm sure the interviewers won't go into so much detail about abortions as we have.October 8th, 2012, 08:22 PM #52October 8th, 2012, 08:26 PM #53
i agree but it was interesting discussion just the same. maybe in later life as doctor we migh get to use it IAOctober 8th, 2012, 08:30 PM #54
@fatima when is your interview??October 8th, 2012, 08:35 PM #55
i havent applied to shifa. i was clicked on this thread because my friend is siving the interview and i though it would help her. and then kept on reading as these questions might help me in other medical college's interviewOctober 8th, 2012, 08:38 PM #56
Mine's on the 16th, so I've got time on my hands. I was actually more confused about the family planning topic. Because according to my cousin, the interviewers were looking for the Islamic viewpoint which is no. Whereas in fact, I don't see anything un-Islamic about it. It's simply the wiser thing to do.October 8th, 2012, 09:12 PM #57

-There are actually 2 interviews lasting approximately 10 minutes each. In one interview, they will give you situations and what you would do to effectively deal with them. Then they send you to another room with another interviewer. In the second interview, they will ask you about your opinions on certain issues like abortion, family planning etc.
-Your interview sadly varies according to the person interviewing you. There are a number of separate rooms, there's one interviewer in each. They send you to these rooms randomly for your interview. Better hope your interviewer is not too rigid in his views.
-There are no right or wrong answers. Just make sure you are able to prove yourself with good reasons to back your answer. And whatever your answer is, you must be confident about it.
That is all the info I can muster up, credit goes to my cousin. Good Luck! Do share your experiences as much as possible so we can all have a better idea about it.October 8th, 2012, 10:48 PM #59

As far as i know, you report at c2(i-e second floor of college) for your interview, where they give you a questionnaire to fill out, which has nothing to do with the interview scoring. then they give you a topic or two to write a paragraph either in support of the topic or against it. thereafter, you will wait for your interview turn, which as already mentioned, are random..... for ALL THE ETHICAL QUESTIONS THAT THEY ASK, THEY ARE LOOKING FOR THE ANSWERS THAT ARE IN ACCORDANCE WITH OUR RELIGION ISLAM AND YOU SHOULD KNOW WHY YOU ARE SUPPORTING A PARTICULAR OPINION..... (their are many debatable topic and for that you should stick to what a sensible person would do had he been in that situation. don't give them any idea that you already know the interview questions and have memorize the answers bla bla
get well dressed for the interview ( that doesn't mean that guys should suit up. a simple tuck in shirt, formal pants and shoes will do the job)
start your interview with greeting the interviewer.. Assalamalaikum ill be good.
be confident through out the interview and don't let them know that you are nervous bla bla
if you don't know something that they ask, tell them that you don't know instead of making a philosopher of yourself.
at the end of the interview you should ask a question related to shifa like the sport facilities from the interviewer and finish your interview with thanking the interviewer and saying Allah hafiz.
GOod luck !!!
