Medical School Interview Courses Overview:
The medical school interview: it’s where you can make a lasting impression. It's also the deciding factor as to whether or not you begin your med school career. So, make sure you’re ready to ace the medical school interview with our full day interview preparation course, where we help you improve your interview techniques. Our full day interview courses are facilitated by both experienced medical doctors and senior medical students, who have the benefit of recent medical school interview experience. With a maximum of 9 to 12 students per 3 to 4 facilitators, the small group size and interactive nature mean our students get lots of opportunities to practice delivering answers and receive individual feedback.
Using our question bank we’ll break down the questions for medical schools in the UK, and how you can make your answers stand out for all interview formats. From practice questions panel style to mock interviews in a realistic MMI circuit, we’ll make sure you are fully prepared for your medical school interview when the time comes.
For the last 5 years, 98.5% of our students received an offer after their medical school interview. Follow in their footsteps and get into the medical school you want.
What to expect from our Course:
The interview course is led by qualified doctors and senior medical students that apply their knowledge and experience from getting into medical school themselves. Additionally, 8 of our facilitators have sat or are currently on interview panels at medical schools around the UK.
In the full day medical school interview course, we coach you on how to approach all different types of questions and MMI stations. It's not lecture based at all. It's more like a full day practice where you are taught techniques, strategies, how to structure your answers etc. Therefore, it gives you a real interview experience and you improve your abilities throughout the day.
For example when we do the ethics parts - we do the summary of the medical ethics knowledge you need (we give you access to online videos where you can see all the teaching of the content you need before the course and after) but during the course itself, you will be approaching ethical scenarios that come up in interviews and learning how to apply the knowledge you have to an interview question. We do something similar for all topics: NHS issues, GMC duties of a doctor, role plays, data interpretation questions etc. So at the end of the day, you'll know how to approach each type of question really well, with different structures in mind and you will have practiced many questions throughout the day and got feedback.
The course includes a short MMI circuit of 6 stations during the afternoon and will be videoed (your practice and the feedback you receive is videoed) and you can take this home, with the marking schemes. For the 6 MMI stations during the course, 4 will be most common MMI stations, 1 will be on your personal statement and 1 you can choose for it to be a past question from the med school or dental school of your choice. You are also given a 30 pages workbook (A4 format) which includes how to approach the most common interview questions. Finally, you get given access to online videos that teach you on all the key topics you need to prepare for your interviews (these are additional videos from the free online interview course which is available to all for free).
With 11 years of experience in medical school admissions, our team has designed our full-day medicine interview course with a small class size: 3-4 facilitators per 9 to 12 students offering a more personalised approach for our students. We are convinced this is what leads to our success rate year after year. The medical school interview is updated each year, and thus the most up to date hot topics in healthcare that are relevant to your medical school interview will also be covered.
Where are the courses held?
This year, we will be expanding to hold courses in four great cities: Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds and London. View our course locations.
