(Includes how to plan your approach).
Our program runs through the full process of the trainee doctor selection process. Commencing with knowing how to prepare to submit your application which includes important considerations such as organising your referees and ensuring that your CV or Resume maximises your potential in a quick 7-second first review.
We then cover how to fill in selection criteria using examples of your past work as well as how to research the interview process and prepare and practice.
Remaining calm during a stressful high stakes interview is essential and we cover this too.
Finally we breakdown for you the most common types of interview questions and how you should best approach these including how to give an example, how to deal with a hypothetical, how to answer a clinical question when you just don't know, how to deal with an inappropriate question and how to get your personal brand and value across in 20 to 30 minutes.
Each session is interactive and our presenters stay for the break after in case you have any burning questions for them.
