Preparing for your Core Surgical Interview is daunting. All the hard work you put into improving your portfolio might be wasted if you don’t prepare properly for the rest of the interview.
Plenty of people will tell you that the interview is just on content you already know. Or that you’re already doing the job, so you don’t need to prepare.
Don’t listen to them!
The top candidates on the day will have spent months preparing answers to all the potential questions. If you want to match them, you need to treat your interview like an exam.
Your preparation should focus on two areas: Content and Delivery
The Core Surgical Interview is knowledge intensive. If you don’t have the right content in your answers it doesn’t matter how slick your delivery is, you won’t get the marks.
Similarly, your knowledge could be consultant level, but if you don’t deliver it well, all those hours in the library will be for nothing!
Our Core Surgical Interview Question Bank will provide you with both the content and the structure to ensure you get maximum points at interview.
We’ve written over 200 questions spread over 20 scenarios. We cover all aspects of the interview syllabus and each question has a comprehensive model answer. Our goal is to make sure you are thoroughly prepared for whatever they ask you and we are continually adding new questions to give you a fresh angle on the key topics.
All of our content is written by authors who have scored highly at interview and have secured some of the most competitive core surgical jobs in previous rounds.
We don’t hold anything back in this course! We are giving you access to all of the resources we used to get our training jobs.
Best of all, we’ve presented it in an easy to understand format, on a platform that you can access anywhere.

Anyone applying for Core Surgical Training who wants to give themselves the edge at interview.
Whether you are applying straight from FY2, or you’ve been unsuccessful at interview in the past, our online course will give you all the information you need to rank highly.
We have broken the online course down into the 2 components of the interview you will do, in addition to the portfolio station.
All our questions are presented exactly like they appear at interview.
Focused questions on the clinical topics which come up every year, so you can revise effectively. We provide detailed questions with model answers to make sure you maximise your points in this station.
Many candidates underestimate this station and instead focus on the clinical part of the interview. However, they are worth the same amount of points and it’s easy to drop marks here. We have written numerous management questions and model answers to give you the knowledge and structure to score highly on this station.
When we prepared for our interviews we spent months assimilating past questions and finding the right resources with the required knowledge.
This involved scouring the internet and talking to core surgical trainees who had recently been successful. For those of you that have tried to do something similar, you will know this can be painstaking! And the advice can be variable at best!
In the end however, it was worth it. We were able to comprehensively prepare for our interviews and achieve our dream jobs.
