Communicate Superior At Healthcare Interviews

May 4th, 2010

The NHS consultant interview process for a medical position is a competitive one. It may seem slightly alien to try to sell yourself aggressively, but that is the name of the game. You must appear to be better than your competition.

Preparing for your interview is a thinking process. The person who beats their competitors is likely to be the better performer at a specialist training interview.

Being at your NHS consultant interview is, in some ways, the same as attending any other business meeting that you will need to go to. There are some simple formulas of communication, that will always help you to get your points across more effectively and you should use those in your interview too.

Tell them what you are going to tell them, tell them and then tell them what you told them is a well known communication truism. You need to announce what you are going to mention, then talk around that structure and finally bring together your main points in a succinct summary.

Your specialist training interview should be just like a normal discussion with a consultant with a few, unspoken formulas. It should have the natural ebb and flow of a normal conversation, where the subject matter is something on which you are well versed.
