ENT ST3 Interview Question Bank

Maximise your performance at the 2024 National Otolaryngology (ENT) ST3 interview

“I was successful at interview and the scenarios were very similar to those on the Medibuddy website. The information on Medibuddy was really useful for interview preparation.”
“I found the Medibuddy question bank extremely useful!! I ranked very highly and I think your question bank definitely helped.”

The ENT ST3 interview format is notorious for changing from year to year. Preparation is extremely important to ensure you maximise your chances of success on the day.

For 2024, there are three interview stations: Professional, Communication, and Clinical. More than 2 candidates apply for every single job, and to score well and get your first choice job, you need to prepare for the interview like you would your exams.

So how do I prepare for my interview?

Effective preparation focuses on two areas: Knowledge and Delivery.

The ENT 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 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 ENT ST3.

This is where we come in…

The Medibuddy Online 2024 Otolaryngology (ENT) ST3 Interview Question Bank

We are proud to have developed over 30 carefully crafted scenarios that mirror the interview, to help you prepare and maximise your chances of scoring your dream job. 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 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.

What will I learn from the ENT ST3 Online Interview Question Bank?

We have broken down our question bank into the three stations your 2024 interview will consist of, ensuring these closely match the interview.


The professional station can change slightly each year, so we have provided 10 scenarios with examples, to help you prepare for what might come up.


This station assesses your key communication skills, especially important in the role of an ENT specialist. It usually involves a professional actor. Practice is especially important for the communication station as there is less factual knowledge to memorise. We have provided 10 scenarios with different situations where your communication skills could be tested.


If you do not have extensive experience in ENT, this station may require the most initial preparation. An opening clinical vignette will be provided before the station starts, and you must then work through how you would approach the clinical situation. We provide examples of conditions treated in ENT, and detail how you would approach these, to ensure you are prepared for 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 surgical trainees, have put it all together in one place, the Medibuddy Online ENT ST3 Interview Question Bank.
