Plastic 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 Plastic 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 Plastic Surgery ST3 Secrets Interview Programme is UK’s premier high yield interview preparation programme, delivered by the highest calibre faculty. The faculty consists of a number #1 ranked candidate in the Country and Consultant Plastic Surgeons.
We have amalgamated past stations, techniques and frameworks to deliver the most focused and valuable course to get you ready to ACE the Plastic Surgery 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!
With the changes stipulated by the JCST and in light of COVID and virtual interviews, it is even more crucial to be succinct and to also focus on body language
