Date: 18 February + virtual mock interview; Venue: Virtual/Online
Orthopaedic Surgery is one of the most competitive specialties at ST3 level. Posts are limited and many trainees after CST can spend 1-2 years doing a non-training trust grade job, before achieving success, and others either do not match or choose an alternative career pathway.
Time in the specialty during CST helps to strengthen the application, but there have been those who did 18 months of Orthopaedic Surgery experience in CST who were unsuccessful, compared to those who had done the minimum requirement (6 months) who DID get an ST3 job! Thus, it is absolutely PIVOTAL to score highly in the interview process, to 1) secure a job and 2) secure a job in the desired geographical location in the UK, and interview preparation and technique will play a big role in your overall score.
The High Yield Orthopaedics ST3 Secrets Interview Programme is led by Miss Apoorva Khajuria, who was the number 1 ranked candidate in the UK Orthopaedic ST3 National Selection. We have amalgamated past stations, techniques and frameworks to deliver the most focused and valuable course to get you ready to ACE the Orthopaedic Surgery ST3 interviews!
Our philosophy is simple:- We want to maximise your time and provide the highest yield experience-based guidance based on real past interview stations, and teach you: WHAT to say; WHEN to say it; and HOW to say it. Articulation and structuring your answers with frameworks = points in the interview!
–Clinical: Key to this is delivery of information – SPEED and ACCURACY – We explain exactly what we mean by these concepts. We cover past clinical stations and provide key frameworks to approach any scenario you may encounter
–Interview psychology + how to optimise for a virtual interview: we discuss the art of interview psychology, backed by evidence-based literature, and hacks to optimise performance
–Portfolio: We focus on how to effectively answer questions on clinical audit, research, teaching, teamwork, training and other hot topics. What to say and what not to say to score highly.
–Prioritisation: We cover a wide range of scenarios from the last 3 years, focussing on key aspects of each case that MUST be communicated to get all the key points across efficiently and succinctly.
The interview can be a daunting prospect, especially given how pivotal it is for your future professional working lives. But through this intensive, high-yield programme, we hope to give you the key tools to excel and stand out from the competition!
