The ENT ST3 Interview Bootcamp
Next course February 2020 (not sold out - dates not available yet)
A unique intensive course with group practice and realistic mock interviews
** COURSE STRUCTURE LIABLE TO CHANGE IN 2020 **
A two-day intensive course for ENT ST3 interviews. With a maximum of 16 candidates, there is a high tutor-to-candidate ratio and plenty of opportunity for in-depth practice and critique.
Day One: Seminars, small group workshops (four to five candidates per tutor), feedback in a supportive environment, tips for success, portfolio assessment. Breakfast, lunch, course dinner, coffee and refreshments all included.
Day Two: Up to two circuits of realistic mock interviews that will include professional medical actors and multiple assessors as well as 'quality controllers' and 'lay representatives' to create a realistic environment. There will be both verbal and written feedback. Packed lunch, coffee and refreshments included; breakfast and dinner not included.
Accommodation is not included. All tutors on the Friday will have been recently successful at national selection; mock interview assessors will include consultants and post-CCT fellows.

We are also releasing 4 observer places for CT1 doctors wishing to observe selected mock interviews on day two.

Observers will not be present during feedback to candidates.

NOTE: If any surplus is generated from our courses, ExcellENT uses this to support ENT education through prizes and grants, and by funding projects such as entsho.com. All trustees, course organisers and tutors are unpaid volunteers.
Refund & Cancellation Policy: Until 1200 15 December 2017, attendees may cancel for a refund, less a 20% administration cost. As this is an annual course, there is no option to defer.
After 1200 15 December 2017, no refunds are available unless the attendee can arrange for a replacement paying the same fee. These rules allow us to provide viable courses with high tutor-attendee ratios at a reasonable cost.
If we are forced to cancel the course either because of low uptake or because of circumstances beyond our control, we will contact attendees at the earliest possible time (usually at least four weeks before the course). If we are forced to cancel a course, attendees will be given a full refund but we are not liable for other costs they may have incurred.
