Course Description

Overview of the Oxford Medical Consultant Interview Course

Securing the consultant position of your choice may define your career for years to come. The interview which you face is the culmination of your many years of dedicated development. To be successful you must be ready to effectively present your broad range of skills, experiences and opinions with relevance.  We have specialised in Consultant Interview preparation since 2004.  Our experience has led us to develop the current interactive format of this course so you can be confident you will be ready to face the challenge.

Where do the courses take place?

We regularly run courses in locations across the UK including London, Oxford, Nottingham, Leeds, Manchester and Glasgow.

What will I learn?

We start by ensuring that you have a clear understanding of the interview process and who is involved. The Advisory Appointments Committee, or AAC, who conduct your interview are looking for more than a doctor with technical expertise. This technical skill level is all but taken for granted for any doctor shortlisted for interview. We therefore clarify what each member of the panel wants to know about you and why. Next we share the best structures and strategies for responding to the type of questions you will face. Along the way we investigate current NHS hot topics and offer plenty of opportunity to practice your interview technique.

What is the format?

The course is designed by NHS Consultants from our Faculty with direct experience of the AAC panel. Your course tutor is a member of this Faculty so you can be confident in their support. There is great value in preparing interactively with your peers. We keep our group sizes to a maximum of 8 delegates per course. This arrangement enables interaction so that you learn from both your tutor and your fellow delegates.

Through a mix of discussion and practice you will build your confidence and abilities to respond to the interviewers questions. A cornerstone of the course is the mock ACC panel interview. This is followed by feedback and coaching. You also have the opportunity to observe your fellow delegates in action. Such observation helps you to further identify the best techniques- and also what to avoid.

Your mock interview will be videoed with an AAC-panel-eye-view camera. This video will be available for you to download in the week following the course so you can then watch yourself in action in order to continue your learning. You also receive a paperback copy of our Consultant Medical Interview Guide 2018-19 (retail price £49.99) at the event as part of your delegate package. These act as a useful reference resource for the time leading up to your interview.

You receive a certificate for 6 CPD points once you have participated in the 1-day event.

Supporting you from the start

We realise that time may be tight between today and the date of your interview. To help, our support begins as soon as you register for the course. You have instant access to our Consultant Interview Online Preparation material for one month from the date you book. You will also have the option to extend this period.  This package includes 2 hours of our online NHS & UK Medical Regulation video tutorialsYou gain a further 2 CPD points for completing this pat of your package.  In addition, you have immediate access to an online read-only copy of the guide book and a library of useful links and resources. It saves you both time and effort, pulling together a wealth of information to support your preparations.

How do I book my place?

The list further up this page shows live availability for all dates and locations.  Subject to availability we accept bookings for courses right up to one hour before the start time. Simply choose your preferred event, click ‘Select’ and enter your information.

What additions or alternatives are available?

As mentioned, you receive instant access to our Consultant Interview Online Preparation when you book your course. This includes the 2018-19 online version of the Consultant Medical Interview Guide so you can start your preparation immediately. We give you the printed copy of your book when you attend the event. If you are unable to find a suitable date and location then you can purchase either of these items separately. Alternatively, our Consultant Interview 1-to-1 Online Coaching could be the solution which best suits your needs.

If you are not quite ready to book your place then you can download a copy of our Consultant Medical Interview Quick Guide. You will find this available on our Free Information page. Finally, if its all you need a little light hearted relief from the pressure then visit our Insights page: Preparing for your Consultant Interview – Moving on from The Apprentice.
