8 Tips for Medical School Interviews

http://www.gmc-uk.org/education/undergraduate/tomorrows_doctors.asp Got an interview at a UK Medical School coming up? DON'T PANIC! You're going to be fine - seriously, you're going to nail it. The trick with interviews is to go in there, be enthusiastic, be confident and don't be put off if it doesn't go as fabulously as you'd hoped. It's normal to be nervous, and as long as you've done your homework (read Tomorrow's Doctors, looked up the course you're applying for and done a decent little bit of work experience), you'll walk it. If you enjoyed this video on medical school interviews, let us know! We're doing a whole series on medical school admissions. Let us know what else you'd like to see us do next :) MUSIC Kool Kats and Sock Hop Both by Kevin Macleod Courtesy of Incompetech.com

4 Things Medical Students Wish Doctors Knew

If you're a junior doctor at a big teaching hospital who struggles with the ever-irritating burden of medical students, this is for you. This is what we wish doctors knew. What we wish they remembered... Here's how you can ensure your students have the best possible clinical experience without it taking up hours of your time. Quick, efficient tips to save you time and prevent you and your students getting fed up with each other. It's all backed up by Medical Education theory, and by my personal experiences as well. May seem a little cheesy, but it comes from a personal place. REFERENCES • Hutchinson, L. (2003) 'Educational environment' in BMJ, England: 810-2. • Kaufman, D. M.

What's Medical School Actually Like?

Someone asked me this week what medical school is actually like. So I tried to give a good answer. Or an honest answer at least. I don't know if the two are mutually exclusive or not. In all seriousness though, medical school is great. Everyone should be a medical student at least once. Good times. MUSIC Tea Roots by Kevin Macleod (incompetech.com)
