2-Day Interview Masterclass
96% rate of acceptance into at least 1 university post-interview
An incredible experience that I would definitely recommend to any aspiring medics. It was very informative and the opportunity for mock interviews and group discussions were really helpful. Thank you MedicHut!
What is the Interview Masterclass?
Spend day one learning how to tackle medical school interviews with the knowledge-base needed. We’ll teach you everything you need to know about the NHS, medical ethics, hot topics, and structuring responses for various types of questions. You’ll also have the opportunity to debate other attendees to better understand various sides to ethical arguments. On day two, you’ll be thrown in the deep end with a realistic simulated MMI circuit. With 8 interviewers who will each provide you with detailed and individualised feedback on your performance, you’ll be set to maximise your interview preparation. This course is not only a student favourite, but is a favourite of our team because we love the impact it has on students. They leave the course inspired, motivated, and feeling better than ever about tackling their interviews.
What do our students think?
Day 1 of our Interview Masterclass consists of interactive seminars which cover the following topics:
How do you introduce yourself? Did you know there’s a correct way to do it? Don’t worry, we’ll help you out.
Strategy and structure are very important when it comes to the interview process. You can have incredible knowledge of a topic but waffle on and run out of time in a question. We teach you exactly how to structure each answer and impress your examiners. We’ll also select some students to demonstrate in front of the class – it’s nerve-wracking but very useful!
It’s very common to answer a different question than the interviewer intended to ask. This masterclass will cover “buzzwords” that will really help you understand exactly what a question is asking.
Communication skills are absolutely vital. These can be categorised as verbal and non-verbal. We’ll go through exactly what you can do to ensure you’re displaying all of your best qualities and communicating the way that would be expected of a medical student.
Learn everything you need to know about medical ethics as well as how to go about studying more in your own time if you so wish.
We save you from overzealousy studying the student BMJ and news articles by providing you the briefs on current hot topics, as recent news can easily come up in an interview. You’ll also receive a reading list to cover in your own time.
Learn all the basics about the NHS and how it runs. You’d be surprised how much you don’t know! It’s these extras that can really impress an examiner and show how keen you are to work as a doctor.
There are a lot of common questions that come up time and time again, sometimes with slightly different wording. We’ll ensure you cover all of these.
Putting what you learn into practice is where most students slip up, which is why we throw you in the deep end and give you the chance to practice randomly selected interview stations in real time. Day 2 consists of a simulated MMI with examiners and actors (who are medical/dental students or doctors) to give you the most realistic experience in preparation for your interview(s). We won’t expect you to be perfect at this stage, so learning where to improve is vital. Our examiners will give you feedback at each station to help you strengthen your interview skills.
Stations will likely include the following question types, but may vary:
All attendees will receive a copy of our interview ebook which is filled with insightful interview material and practice questions. You’ll also receive a very warm welcome to the MedicHut Family!
The majority of masterclasses are currently being held online, so students must have access to Zoom. We’ve worked tirelessly to ensure an excellent remote learning experience which matches our in-person masterclasses, and thus far have received incredible feedback. If you have any questions about how this class will run online, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
Some in-person dates will be available in London (26th-27th November) and Manchester (19th-20th November).
