Interview Skills

Doing well at interview is all about coming across as a friendly, likeable person who is passionate about becoming a doctor, and has the qualities, knowledge and determination to be a good one. A big part of showing this will be effective communication. You’ll be taught how to communicate effectively through:

  • Communication skills seminar
  • Answering common question types
  • Structuring your answers

Knowledge

Common Interview

Topics

We’ll teach you what you need to know about things like medical ethics, the NHS, and current affairs. This won’t be read to you, though – the entire Interview Crash Course is designed to be as interactive as possible. Some of the topics we’ll cover during the course of the day:
  • Medical ethics workshop & group work
  • NHS and Current Affairs – Things you should know
  • MMI stations – Lateral thinking & breaking bad news

Practice

Putting Your Learning

Into Practice

This is where the real fun begins! We’ll give a volunteer a mock interview in front of the rest of the class whilst they watch and critique. The volunteer can (and should) use the knowledge they gained in the morning to give themselves an advantage, and after the interview, both the instructors and the other students will give them constructive feedback about what they did wonderfully and what could be improved.

Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee everyone a mock interview.

FAQs

Got some questions about the Interview Crash Course? You might just find the answer here. If not, you can always reach out to us and we’ll be happy to help!

Glad you asked! We certainly think it is, though our opinion is probably slightly biased. 

If you want a more impartial opinion, we can tell you that we give a feedback form to students at the end of each course, and our years of preparing for Interviews, every single student has answered ‘Yes’ to the question ‘Would you be inclined to recommend the course to a friend?’ We’ve also got a tonne of reviews that you can read on our reviews page. 

By all means, if money’s no object then do please attend whatever courses you feel will help you. However, if you’re looking for the best value-for-money option, then there’s really nothing that beats us. We’ll give you a whole day of teaching, provide everything you need to prepare for the test, and in the end, hopefully help you get into a great university. No other company provides all that for the price that we’re offering. 

Your course instructor will be a super knowledgeable medic who has gone through the Interview recently and passed with flying colours. They will have first-hand experience of the Interview, and have taught many students to follow in their impressive footsteps!

We take great care to make sure our tutors are the best of the bunch. We’ve got an average tutor rating of 4.93/5 (with over 4,000 reviews!) so we think we do a pretty good job of this.

The course is held live on Zoom. You’ll be sent over a link and a companion guide so you can follow along with ease.

Even a jam-packed full-day course like ours won’t teach you everything you need to know for the Interview. What it will do is provide a solid foundation and a springboard for the rest of your revision.

Doing well on an Interview isn’t something you can rely on a silver bullet for, but we hope our Crash Course is as close to a silver bullet as possible!

You will be given a 200-ish page course e-book, containing all you need to get on with your preparation. It’s also packed with practice questions and detailed solutions. During the course itself, we will be referring constantly to this book and interactively going through it as a class. This book should become your best friend every day until your Interview (after which you can burn it!). 

You’ll also get the course companion guide which will take you through the course on the day.

It’s true, we’re not examiners or anything (if those even exist). We’re just a group of medical students who have successfully been through the process. As such, you won’t get any insider knowledge from us (nor will you from anyone else), but what you will get, is arguably the most important perspective – the student’s perspective. Because we know what kinds of things you’ve covered in school, we’re able to tailor our teaching to suit you, in a way that no one else really can.

Along with this, we’ve worked very hard to bring you the best strategies and techniques that have worked for us and we know will work for our students. 

It goes without saying that we constantly test and improve upon strategies year on year, and cover any new changes to the exams. We know how hard the tests are, having taken them ourselves very recently, so we can share with you the tips and tricks we learnt which we found helpful. And at the end of the day, it just really helps to be taught by people you can easily relate to – it makes things far more enjoyable. 

Book today and watch your Interview skills skyrocket.

All of our resources and courses are created and led by tutors who have recently gone through the process and passed with flying colours. We’ve helped thousands of students with their Interview preparation. Will yours be next?
