About the course

This course aims to provide up-to-date guidance for trainees that are undertaking interviews for ST1 jobs in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. It is designed and run by trainees and consultants within the specialty who have extensive experience with the interview process and the current training system. It integrates online learning that allows theory-based preparation with hands on interview practise during a one day course.

Our course is unique because:

  • It is specific for Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
  • It is specific for the new recruitment process.
  • It is specific for ST1 level.
  • It is designed and run by Consultants in OG that have been examiners in previous interview rounds and trainees that have successfully obtained ST1 positions under the new recruitment system.
  • It covers specialty specific topics that are commonly asked in ST1 interviews but also provides the opportunity to develop an effective way to deliver the information in a way suited for the specific interview format.
  • It allows access to online recourses that provide all the theory based preparation material necessary to tackle the interviews and are accessible well before the interview rounds to allow sufficient preparation time.
  • It is combined with a 1-day hands-on course which includes:
    • Lectures on how to approach the different interview stations.
    • A complete simulated mock interview exactly as you would experience in the recruitment rounds.
    • Communication skills station practise with professional actors who have previously taken part in London deanery OG interviews.
    • Analysis of actual previously asked scenaria and the opportunity for candidates to evaluate other candidates in order to get insight into the nature of the marking schemes and examiners expectations.
    • Opportunity to interact and ask questions from trainees that have recently passed the interview rounds and successfully acquired ST1 positions.
Who should attend?
  • Foundation doctors
  • FTSTA or LAT doctors in OG applying for ST1
  • All other doctors that are aiming entry in OG training at ST1 level

Interview Course Program



The first part of the course will focus on summarizing the information that is commonly asked in the ST1 interviews. The lectures are themed according to the three stations that frequently appear in the interviews and include:
  1. Portfolio and Generic questions station
  2. Communication skills station
  3. Clinical skills station
The second part is an interactive session that focuses on how to deliver the information required in a way that is appropriate for the specific interviews.

Delegates will be split into pairs and will go through a full 1 hour, 3 station, mock interview. They will get the opportunity to perform as a candidate but also to observe their team-mate and mark his/her performance alongside the examiner.

The mock interviews will be made as realistic as possible in order to best prepare candidates for the real experience. In the communication skills station we are involving professional role players that have many years of experience in O&G interviews. In parallel with the interviews the remaining delegates will have the opportunity to take part in a workshop focusing on specific aspects of the interview.
