Panel Interview Preparation

Royal College of Medical Training Initiative (MTI) is a mutually beneficial scheme that provides junior doctors from all over the world with an opportunity to work and to train in the UK, while giving a high-quality trust, longer-term alternative to using locums to fill rota gaps.

MTI Interview Guide
Due to the global nature of the MTI scheme and varying types of placement, there is a need of flexibility for the interview process. However, all interviews must be conducted in a fair and equitable manner and should follow a structured format which include the following:-
•  A specialty-specific communication scenario
•  A specialty-specific clinical scenario
•  Assessment of professionalism and values
•  A review of the candidate's skills and experience, what role they are seeking in the UK and what they are hoping to gain from their experience in the UK.

Additional points and questions can be added to the interview as the panel feels it necessary. Interviews may be undertaken face to face (in the sponsor country or in the UK) or via videoconferencing including Skype. Due to issues around identifying candidates, telephone interviews are prohibited. All members of the interview panel should have completed equality and diversity training.
