In Detail: Small-Group Tutoring Schedule
Below is an overview of the small-group teaching schedule for the week. Each session will last 2 hours.
These classes will be supplemented by private training, 1-2-1 mock interviews and university-specific teaching.
Day 1: Interview Styles, General Techniques and Why This Medical School?
We begin by exploring the different styles of interview: panel, MMI and Oxbridge.
The session will then move on to looking at interview technique. How should you structure answers and what should you avoid?
We will conclude with how to approach medical school-specific questions, and how to best prepare for why you want to apply to specific medical schools.
Day 2: Motivation for Medicine and Work Experience
This session will focus on exploring questions relating to a candidate’s motivation to study medicine, along with their understanding of what the career entails.
Day 3: Teamwork, the MDT and Personal Insight
The third session will start by exploring candidates’ understanding and experience of working within, and leading, teams.
We will look at multidisciplinary teams, and how to link personal teamworking experience with the teamworking seen on work experience.
Finally, we will explore personal attributes – strengths, weaknesses, dealing with stress and resilience – and how these come into play during interviews.
Day 4: Moral and Professional Reasoning
This session will explore the concepts of medical ethics, followed by linking this to common ‘what would you do if…’ type dilemmas often encountered in the interview.
Questions will include situational judgement and ranking questions, along with testing professionalism and candidates knowledge of the NHS.
Day 5: Empathy and Communication, Problem Solving and Oxbridge
The final group session will focus initially on role-play-based MMI scenarios, looking at how empathy and communication skills are assessed.
We then move on to explore MMI-style problem solving, followed by Oxbridge-style problem solving questions.
