Yes! Interviews are a crucial aspect of the selection process for entry into health science courses. Most people focus on secondary school, study for the UCAT but do not prepare for the interview.
However, knowledge of the types of questions asked, coaching on interview technique and enhanced communication skills can dramatically improve your performance. You should not go into an interview unprepared or not having an understanding of what you will be asked. If you do, you will be at a competitive disadvantage compared to those who are prepared for the interview.
The MedEntry Team has extensive interview expertise and knowledge of the types of questions likely to arise at each university, which we use to provide you with focussed training.
Our interview guide comes with all of our packages, or can be purchased separately. It is packed with information on interview technique, common themes in health science interviews and how to tackle specific questions that will be asked.
MedEntry also offers Medical Interview Training Sessions that are tailored to specific Universities and Courses, since each university has a unique interview style and set of questions. The session is a day-long program facilitated by an expert. It covers interview technique, specific questions likely to arise and strategies that can be used to answer them.
Interview training sessions provide students with strategies and tips on how to succeed in medical or dental interviews. The sessions are tailored to the specific university/course for which the student has received an offer, enabling detailed discussion of the specific questions likely to arise at that interview.
The sessions are conducted in small groups, allowing personalised feedback and interaction to occur. An expert will facilitate the session and provide feedback on everything from interview technique to the intricacies of students' answers.
95% of students who have undergone our full training program have been successful in obtaining a place in one or more medical schools.
Psychometric and personality tests (such as the UCAT and interviews) rely on the fact that the candidates do not prepare, so testers/interviewers actively discourage the candidates from preparing. They do this by propagating various myths such as: preparation does not help; it will be a waste of resources; preparation may hinder your performance; interviewers are trained to pick up those who are coached; that there are some questions in the test/interview which are designed to detect if you try to second guess; it will work against you; it will disadvantage you; we can tell if you prepare etc. Accredited testers know that such organisations go to great lengths to place fear in the candidates to ensure they do not prepare, precisely because preparation works!
Purchasing a Medical Interview Training Package (MIT) will allow attendance in a MIT Session.

This is a myth promoted by universities to prevent you from preparing, because if you do prepare, their job becomes harder.
If you believe this myth, try watching a stand-up comedy show by the same comedian two days in a row. You will see that the seemingly 'random' thoughts which pop into their heads, which makes their lines so funny, are exactly the same. They have been rehearsed and practised hundreds and perhaps thousands of times. No one would say that stand-up comedians come across as rehearsed! Jerry Seinfeld, for example, takes one line of delivery and works on it for days, polishing the intonation, delivery, pitch etc. Yet when he comes on stage, it seems natural.
MedEntry's Medical Interview Training Sessions are designed to help you prepare effectively for your interview and come across in a natural, genuine manner.
