Part 1 – Public Mock Interviews
This is where the real fun begins! We’ll be giving each of you a different mock interview (in front of everyone else), which will consist of a mix of standard questions, lateral thinking questions, medical ethics and MMI scenarios. You can (and should) use the knowledge you gained in the morning to give yourself an advantage, and after your interview, both the instructors and the other students will give you constructive feedback about what you did wonderfully and what could be improved. When someone else is being interviewed, you should be thinking of what your own responses to the questions would be – this means you’ll get 15 interviews worth of practice and therefore, the odds of something surprising you at your actual interview will be significantly reduced.
After the interviews and feedback, we’ll be finishing the day off with a somewhat intense quick-fire session, where we’ll be throwing random questions and scenarios at you to see if you’ve got a grasp of what we spent the day trying to teach you. There’ll also be an opportunity after the course for you to chat to the instructors about the universities you’re applying to, your personal statement, or anything else you’re concerned about.
