Round 1 2016 dermatology was extremely competitive, with 158 applicants in total and only 34 NTNs available and 3 LATs in Scotland. Our DermOwl candidates reported back that the interview was really tough, especially the research station, but luckily many did extremely well. Out of the candidates who attended the DermOwl course and did one-to-ones for Round 1 (and let us know how they did), 12 got NTNs and 1 got a LAT post. A number of DermOwl attendees also received competitive clinical fellow posts.

We are thrilled that everyone did well and, to those who did not get the job they wanted, keep working and you will get there. Round 2 is just around the corner!!!
