ST1/ST3 OMFS INTERVIEW preparation course at Queen Victoria Hospital ,East Grinstead on Tuesday the 7th January 2020.
After the successful six rounds of interview preparation course , it gives us immense pleasure to say that we are organising this once again for the benefit of prospective candidates going to the interview not only this year but also in the near future to sharpen their portfolio, practical/ communication skills and overall OSCE based interview practice.
WHY DID WE FEEL THE COURSE WAS NECESSARY?
In the last few years, ST interviews proved to be difficult to some candidates even after completing both medical and degrees along with foundation training. OMFS is the only speciality to have more jobs than the candidate numbers. All the candidates have dual qualification but some were not deemed eligible for selection. There is a strong need for uplifting the candidate's technique for the interview. OMFS is in dire need of Registrars and future Consultants.
HAS THE INTERVIEW COURSE ORGANISED SO FAR IMPROVED THE ST NUMBERS ALLOCATED?
We believe from reliable sources that there is good improvement in the posts allocated compared to the previous rounds. We believe our course has contributed to this success as most of the trainees attended this course.
1. Portfolio - what to include and how best to score points.
2. Communication skills
3. Common situational judgement Questions
4. Critical appraisal of a scientific paper
5. Common practical Skills required for the would be ST1/ST3.
6. Audit- How to present your Audit in the given time and questions revolving around it.
£20 for all the trainees who are members of BAOMS. We encourage the course aspirants to become BAOMS members which costs only £85 and will be useful as an OMFS trainee. Non BAOMS members pay £100 towards the course costs. Membership details will be checked a week prior to the course.
