Preparing for your General Surgery ST3 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.
