What is Interviewstream?
Interviewstream is a web-based platform that allows students to record a virtual interview using prepared questions that are specialty-specific.
The video can be sent to a reviewer for critique and feedback to include comments and recommendations to assist the student to become more confident throughout their interview preparation.
Interviewstream allows students to record multiple interviews, significantly increasing their potential to practice on-demand.
