Sunderland medical interviews for 2023 entry are scheduled to take place from late December to January. Interviews will be in MMI format and will be face-to-face.
All applicants are assessed and scored based on their academic record and must meet the following criteria:
Shortlisting for interview offers will be based on academic requirements and the UCAT score. This will be done through the use of Sunderland’s interview selection tool.
The interview selection tool is a survey that students will fill out about their work experience.
Interviews will take the form of MMIs, with a series of short interview stations. A typical interview lasts around 90 minutes but can change.
Additionally, each applicant will be asked to complete a 40-minute online numeracy test to assess their ability to solve clinically relevant problems. Those who do not pass the numeracy test will not receive an offer.
Interview assessment and scoring has not been released by Sunderland. Sunderland will not be releasing any conditional offers until all interviews are complete.
Sunderland anticipates that all applicants will be informed by February 2023.
At Sunderland University, the following topics are typically covered in Medicine interview questions:
Typical Medicine interview questions at Sunderland include:
Practise lots of ethical scenarios
Sunderland likes to ask questions about current ethical issues and possible ethical situations you may find yourself in as a medical student or Doctor. Be aware of the 4 pillars of medical ethics and know how to integrate them into your answer.
Prepare well for the numeracy test
This is a unique aspect of the Sunderland Medicine interview. Although the maths questions are usually at a GCSE standard, it is important to go over basic arithmetic as preparation.
Read your work experience survey
Make sure you know about key examples from your work experience and what you learned from your time in different healthcare scenarios.
Don’t panic if one station doesn’t go as planned
As the interview is in MMI format, each station will be individually assessed. If you aren’t happy with how one station went, try your best to forget about it and move on to the next one.
