Mentors who have sat on Medical School interview panels will coach applicants in all of the key medicine interview skills necessary to gain entrance to UK university Medicine courses, encompassing both panel and Multiple Mini interview (MMI) techniques. The Course is divided into a morning seminar, and mock interviews.
Thank you so much for a great mock medical interview course last Thursday, for your feedback and for your additional questions. It was a great help to Caroline - she said that you were amazing and that your discussions aided on so many levels, including her self-confidence! My warm thanks for all of the time that you spent with her and for your follow-up.
A brilliant day. Tom's feedback from our interview was very specific to the questions he asked. The seminars were also extremely helpful, thank you!
I would like to thank you so much for all the support/help you have provided Alessandro since spring last year and in particular in preparation for the medical interviews. He really couldn't have done it without you. Your insight and tips were so valuable!
My Mentor had excellent knowledge of the application process, and provided great guidance/practice for interviews and with the personal statement. She had all information relevant for my chosen universities so the guidance was very tailored. I was very happy with the support I received.
How is the course organised
Our Medical Mock Interview Course runs for 4 hours and is tailored individually. Students are asked prior to the Course to submit their personal statements, their university choices/offers and, if applicable, their Extended Essays, in order to target the interview practice to reflect what you are most likely to encounter on interview day. Morning seminars are capped at eight students per group to ensure that they are engaging and enjoyable, whilst the afternoon mock interviews are highly personalised.
Morning Seminar (1.5 hours)
The morning seminars focus on informing applicants of common and current/topical interview topics, followed by structured discussion to develop students' knowledge and understanding of these topics. A selection of what will be discussed is outlined below:
Interview technique (1 hour)
Break (20 minutes)
Coffee, tea and pastries will be provided. This is an opportunity to socialize with our Medical Mentors so they can share their advice and you can ask them any questions you may have about life as a medic.
Afternoon Mock interviews (2 x 30 minute mock interviews, each followed by a 10 minute constructive feedback review)
These mock interviews will focus on assessing and developing the applicant’s ability to express their motivations for applying to study Medicine convincingly and succinctly, their knowledge of current events in the NHS, and their ability to debate ethical issues in a considerate but effective manner. The mock interview styles will be depend on what type of interviews you will be attending; if you are applying to both a panel and MMI university, we suggest doing one mock interview of each.
However, if you are applying solely to MMI or panel interviews, you can choose to do two mock interviews of the same style. For panel interviews, applicants will be interviewed by a tutor prepared to work with them individually based on materials sent by the applicant prior to the start of the Course. Similarly, for MMI mock interview, the applicant will receive six 5-minute titles to work through with an interviewer, who then assess and feedback on each of their answers.
At the end of the course...
Each student will receive personal feedback on their mock interview performance, as well as a handbook containing all the material covered, more practice questions and tips from our most experienced medical interview coaches.
