More than 12,500 doctors made applications for fewer than 7,000 training posts in the UK in 2013. The average post attracted 2.5 candidates with competition being as high as 11:1 for some specialities.
The Oxford Medical ST & CT Interview Course is designed to help you stand out from the crowd and make sure you achieve success. Designed and delivered by NHS Consultants, it is the essential interview preparation course attended by hundreds of trainee doctors every year.
The value of training for interview with your peers can never be underestimated. To ensure that we strike the right balance, enabling you to learn from the experiences of both your tutor and the other delegates, we keep our group sizes to a maximum of 12 delegates per course.
During this one day course an experienced NHS Consultant will teach you the important interview skills and techniques to use in your ST/CT interview. Speciality-specific advice is supported by our 160 page ST/CT Medical Interview Guide (retail value £29.99) which is included in the course package. You will explore NHS hot topics, learn how to construct answers to common interview questions you are likely to face in the current OSCE format and then have the opportunity to practise a video recorded mock interview with personal feedback tailored to your needs.
Our support for you continues after the event. You can download and review your mock interview video at your leisure and you will also have access to our Distance Learning Package for one month - with an option to extend. With over 3 hours of online video tutorials, plus a library of useful links, this excellent resource will both save and direct your further preparation by pulling together the most important reports and additional reading with explanatory summaries.
Effective preparation is essential to standing out and to become the successful interview candidate . Here are some of the feedback comments from recent courses.
The content we covered on the course gave me a good insight into the NHS topics and station interviews without being overloaded. Saimer February 2014
The course materials given to use after the course were useful for continuing to improve my knowledge and skills. The hot topic NHS tutorials are excellent for learning about NHS issues, not sure I would have been able to learn anywhere near the amount of topics in depth without this. Matthew January 2014
I always get very nervous in interviews so was very worried about going completely blank. This course gave me lots of techniques and tips for answering questions and this has really improved my confidence. Larrier November 2013
