In 2023, over 4 candidates applied for each Plastic Surgery ST3 job. You will have spent years developing your portfolio, and now it is time for that all-important interview.
The process is highly competitive, and approximately 100 candidates get shortlisted for interview every year. To score well and get your first choice job, you need to prepare for the interview like you would your exams.
Effective preparation focuses on two areas: Knowledge and Delivery.
The Plastic Surgery ST3 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 FRCS 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 Plastic Surgery ST3.
This is where we come in…
We are proud to have developed over 230 questions spread over 70 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 Plastic Surgery ST3 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 2024 interview is 30 minutes and broken down into three sections.
This station is broken down into two 5-minute sections. The first section is a question regarding consent and the second section looks at your communication skills. We provide detailed scenarios and model answers for both parts, to help you get maximum points in this station.
For the clinical scenario, you will be made aware of two clinical scenarios for discussion. Ensure your clinical knowledge is up to scratch early so you can then focus on your delivery. We provide over 25 scenarios focusing on topics that come up each year, so you can revise effectively.
We’ve covered the common and not so common questions asked in this station to help you prepare for whatever they ask you. These include areas such as audit, research, teaching, risk and safety, management, consent and ethics.
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 Plastics Surgery ST3s have put it all together in one place, the Medibuddy Online Plastic Surgery ST3 Interview Question Bank.Sign up now to start preparing!
