The Dermatology interview is extremely different to that of other SpR interviews, as it has a heavy focus on Dermatology specific elements. This is why we have designed this Dermatology specific interview course.
Our course is designed to familiarise delegates with the format of the interview, go through likely questions that will come up and highlight areas where revision or study may be required to improve your chances of success.
The course is divided into four sections: introduction (course format, interview style, hints and tips), station 1 (commitment to specialty & portfolio), station 2 (research and teaching) and station 3 (clinical scenario & ethics / communication).
For each section there will be didactic teaching, with some elements of interaction to keep things interesting, but you can be as involved or uninvolved as you like. We break down the likely questions and discuss how to approach each answer to address the interviewers objectives and give tips on how to make your responses individualised and memorable. Station 2 includes specific guidance on how to analyse an abstract, using abstracts that have previously been used in the interview process. For station 3 we use relevant clinical and ethical scenarios and provide advice on how to approach this challenging station with a formula so that on the day you can approach any scenario with confidence.
