As a prospective medical student there are many hurdles which need navigating in the application process.
A successful interview is one of these hurdles and today the 6.2 medical applicants were lucky enough to benefit from the wealth of experience offered by two retired OR medics who came to put each of us through a mock interview.
Dr Tony Roques (1953, left) and Dr Jeremy Russell (1957, right) very kindly gave up their precious time and successfully created an interview situation to assist in our preparations. They asked searching and challenging questions, then offered constructive feedback on our performance. This afternoon was extremely beneficial and has helped to give all five of us confidence when facing our interviews in the forthcoming weeks in order to secure offers to study medicine.
The 6.2 medical applicants would like to thank Dr Roques and Dr Russell for their valuable help this afternoon. We hope to be able to inform them of successful offers In the not too distant future.
