This course will be run by a group of core trainees and specialist registrars. They have successfully run this course for the last 3 years with excellent trainee feedback. Some of the candidates have ranked in the top 2% of all successful core surgical training posts and have returned as faculty this year.

Course Structure -

1.      The morning will consist of interactive lectures given by expert faculty including CST tutors and training programme directors on how to maximise your interview score and performance on the day

2.      The afternoon will consist of a mock interview with an expert panel and you will be scored using a similar mark scheme to CST interview and given verbal and written feedback on your performance.
