Medical Interview course

The medical interview course caters to applicants who expect to be short-listed for interview.

The taught part of the workshop covers background information and interview theory, including types of question asked and how best to tackle them.

You are then given a full-length mock interview followed by detailed feedback on your performance, with due attention paid to body language and ‘paralanguage’.

As the mock interviews are carried out in small groups of four to five, you are able to experience a full range of question types, build up your confidence, and learn from the strengths and weaknesses of your peers.

Dates for the Medical Interview course in 2014 are 2 February and 16 November.

Dates for the Medical Interview course in 2015 are 1 November and 15 November.

If you cannot attend the course, it may be possible to organise targeted one-to-one coaching.

All our courses are taught by highly experienced, medically qualified tutors.
