UK Internal Medicine (previously Core Medical) Training Interview Question Bank | Medibuddy

Maximise your performance at the 2024 UK Internal Medicine interview

“Medibuddy was very useful in preparing for interview. It helped to give me a systematic approach for questions within the different stations.”

Will Bierrum Ranked in top 2% of candidates

Internal Medicine Training (IMT) is highly competitive. In the 2023 application cycle, there were 4406 applicants for 1670 posts. In 2022, it was 4008 applicants to 1639 posts; 400 more applicants, yet only 31 more posts.

It goes without saying, IMT gets more and more competitive each year.

You’ve completed your self-assessment and been invited to interview, and now it is time to prepare. To score well and get your first choice job, you need to prepare for the interview like you would your exams.

“The scenarios in Medibuddy really gave me the confidence I needed for the scenarios. I scored 78.8/80 in the interview and have been ranked in < 5% of the applicants. I only used Medibuddy primarily in my preparations, so I think my interview score can attest to its comprehensiveness. I will be using Medibuddy again for MRCP and Neurology interviews.” Rochelle Smith

So how do I prepare for my interview?

Effective preparation focuses on two areas: Knowledge and Delivery.

The Internal Medicine Training 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 IMT trainee.

This is where we come in…

The Medibuddy Online 2024 IMT Interview Question Bank

If you’ve spoken to current IMT trainees about how they prepared for their interview, you’ve probably already heard about our question bank. We are proud to have developed over 75 carefully crafted scenarios that mirror the interview. We’ve been doing this for a while now and know how important it is for the question bank to be up-to-date. Each year, our high-scoring editors make changes to the question bank to ensure it reflects the most recent interviews. Our team has secured some of the most competitive core training jobs in previous rounds, and we want to help you do the same!

Best of all, we’ve presented it in an easy to understand format, on a platform that you can access anywhere.

“The Medibuddy [IMT] interview bank was the best choice I could have made with such a short time to dedicate to the preparation for the interview!” Vijeta Koonja

What will I learn from the Internal Medicine Online Interview Question Bank?

The 2024 interview is broken down into three questions; application and suitability for IMT, a clinical scenario with patient handover, and an ethical, professionalism and governance question, and we have presented our questions exactly like they appear in the interview.

Application and Suitability for IMT

You will deliver a two-minute presentation, followed by questions about your suitability. The interviewers will be trying to understand what makes you tick and see if you are a good fit for IMT training. Our question bank will take you through example questions and answers to ensure you don’t drop any points.

Clinical Scenario and Patient Handover

We have provided focused questions on the clinical topics which come up every year, so you can revise effectively. Since the introduction of the patient handover section of this question, we have added example handovers to each of these scenarios, so you have detailed explanations and model answers with every scenario.

Ethical, Professionalism and Governance question

Many candidates underestimate this station and instead focus on the clinical part of the interview. However, it’s easy to drop marks here. Our scenarios and model answers will give you the knowledge and structure to score highly on this station.

Why have we done this?

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.

Since then, we have been filtering through all the good and bad resources, so you don’t have to, and our high-scoring core trainees, have put it all together in one place, the Medibuddy Online Internal Medicine Training Interview Question Bank.
