The Royal College of Emergency Medicine (RCEM) and Health Education England (HEE) provide minimal information about the interview each year.
We know that for 2024, there will be 2 components to the interview, over 30 minutes. However, other than ‘questions relating to your application’ and ‘commitment to specialty’, no further information is provided, making it notoriously difficult to prepare.
Now, add this to the fact that the competition ratio for ACCS Emergency Medicine in 2023 was 4.99, this is a highly competitive specialty.
If you are currently preparing for your MSRA, well done! This is one of the first steps to getting an interview. If you have completed your MSRA and been invited to interview, well done to you too! You are almost there.
Effective preparation focuses on two areas: Knowledge and Delivery.
The Emergency Medicine interview is knowledge-intensive. If you don’t have the knowledge, it doesn’t matter how slick your delivery is, you won’t get the marks.
Equally, you might have consultant level knowledge, but if you don’t deliver it well, all those hours preparing will be for nothing!
This is your opportunity to demonstrate why you would make a good Emergency Medicine trainee.

When we were preparing for our specialty interviews, getting accurate and helpful advice felt near impossible. The recruitment websites only provide you with so much information, and whilst asking those who have done the interview is useful, sometimes all it did was make us more nervous, instead of actually helping us to prepare.
