Medical School Interviews

The final medical school application stage is the interview. Make sure you re-read your personal statement and feel confident talking about it. Think about questions you may be asked and prepare answers - giving examples from your own experience where possible.

Topical areas

You will also need to research current 'hot topics' in medicine as you may be asked about these in the interview. Websites such as Bright Journals will help you prepare. If possible, you should also talk to medics about topical areas (NHS bureaucracy, paperwork, rationed care, current and proposed changes, the impact of European regulations etc).

Interview questions

Interview questions will cover a variety of areas. Some will ask for elaborations on the information in your personal statement, while others will require you to articulate an opinion or demonstrate that you’re engaged with current affairs. 

All of the questions are designed to make you communicate with the panel. However, it’s ok to ask for time to think before answering, or asking the panel to repeat the question. They want you to represent yourself fully and will take into account that you may be nervous.
