The Master Class is designed for doctors applying for entry into medical specialties who find interviews difficult because they are visual/practical learners. Most doctors seeking entry into surgical specialties learn through seeing and doing?

This new and innovative program using a specifically designed structure and technique is based on over 10 years experience successfully training doctors who are visual/practical learners for specialty interviews.

The Master Class will demonstrate how to integrate the core competencies required for specialty selection with the visual and practical learning styles and provide each participant with the skills to understand the panel perspective and answer multi-layered and nuanced questions.

The course is strictly limited to five participants

The Master Class will provide you with the skills to:

  • Prepare for specialty interview questions through a series of practical exercises using a visual tool.
  • Analyse questions and their components to be able to respond fully to questions.
  • Answer questions which require responses that integrate several core competencies within the one response.
  • Learn techniques on how to understand and answer questions without the assistance of visual cues.
  • Select and structure appropriate examples to demonstrate experience,  knowledge and suitability.
