Sydney- Medicine and Dental Entrance Interview Course
19 August, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
The Medicine & Dentistry Entrance Interview Live Course (CR301) provides candidates with the materials and the practice required to perform in the high-pressure Medical and Dental admissions interview. Prepared by medical specialists & senior lecturers from leading Australian university medical schools, the course allows students to practice execution of skills fundamental to success in the admissions interview. On completion of the course, candidates enter their admissions interview with the knowledge and confidence needed to strengthen their chances of acceptance into the Medical or Dental school of their choice.
This course is conducted in a live setting with an interview panel. The interview stations and scenarios, assessment sheets and course material have been prepared by Medical Specialists & Senior Lecturers in Australian University Medical Schools. The course is suitable for students from either undergraduate (UMAT) or postgraduate (GAMSAT) streams.
The live interviews conducted during the course are designed to be completely representative of the real interview. Formats including Multiple Mini Interview (MMI) and Semi-structured Interviews are explained and station considerations are given for student university preferences in determining group allocation so that students may practice the style of questioning encountered at specific universities.
In addition to the experience gained from the live interviews, all candidates will be given personalised advice and strategies for improvement. In total, students are involved in a total of 4 interviews (5x MMI Stations each – total 20 stations). Total time allocated for personalised feedback is 50 minutes per student.
