Case Study: Uncontrolled Type 2 Diabetes
A 45-year-old woman with type 2 diabetes arrives for a follow-up visit 1 week after her HbA1c was determined. She has been compliant with metformin 1000 mg twice daily. She reports that her home blood sugar readings have improved slightly but are still high. She admits to a few dietary indiscretions, such as having multiple servings of dessert when going out with friends. For exercise, she has been walking 10 to 15 minutes a day. She denies polyuria, polydipsia, or blurry vision. The review of systems is unremarkable. Her medical history is significant for:Type 2 diabetes, diagnosed 6 months ago when she presented with polyuria, blurry vision, and a random glucose level of 276 mg/dL.
McKinsey Case Interview
The McKinsey case interview is an interview format used to evaluate prospective management consultants. As a former McKinsey consultant, consulting resume screener and interviewer, I thought I would share my perspective on this unusual interview format. The first thing to realize is the Mckinsey interview is structured in a specific way to find candidates who make good consultants. Because McKinsey is considered one of the top (if not THE top) strategy consulting firms in the world, it is very important to the firm that its consultant represent the firm well.
