Event Highlights
Format

This hybrid event (online or face-to-face mock interviews available) adopts a multiple mini-interview format, which is used by most medical schools across Scotland and the UK. You will rotate around 5 different interview stations which cover a diverse range of commonly encountered interview scenarios. The interviewers are made up of consultants, junior doctors and medical students, mimicking the variety of interviewers you will encounter in medical school interviews.

At the end of the event, interviewers and members of You Can Be A Doctor discuss common difficulties encountered with certain types of interview stations and techniques that can be used to help. Afterwards, you will receive personalised feedback from each interview station, highlighting what went well during the interview and what you can do to improve.
