Epoc Medical Careers Conference Student Panel

Posted on by

Epoc Medical Careers Conferences, which are held in London annually, is looking for medical students to join the ‘student panel’. The event is a careers conference for A level students interested in becoming doctors. It is to be held on Saturday the 28th January 2017 at University College London, in Gower Street, WC1

The student panel (about 6 students in all) will be introduced to the A level students before lunch and will circulate and chat informally during lunch. After lunch three students will participate in a more formal question and answer session in the lecture theatre. This is a good opportunity for public speaking experience on your CV. We pay £25 to students taking part in the ‘Q&A’ session and £20 to others. We provide lunch to all. We will need students to arrive by 12:25pm sharp and to stay until about 1:35 (after lunch) or about 2:15 (after the Q&A session).

Dress code is comfortable to casual. You don’t need to prepare anything before the event – just be willing to introduce yourself, and to talk about your experiences of UCAS, interviews, your medical school and so on.

Please let Peter Scott at peter@psa-surveyors.co.uk know if you would like to join us with your available dates. Please contact Peter as soon as possible as there are only a few places. If you are interested in the Q&A session, please send him a current CV.

SJT Webinar

Posted on by

SJT: Secret for Success Webinar is designed to allow participants to become familiar with the SJT scoring system, common themes on which the exam is based, and principles which can be used to develop effective strategies when confronted with challenging scenario-based questions. The speaker, Dr Ahmad Moinie BMCh (Oxon), MA (Cantab), was in the first cohort of finalists to be ranked in the FPAS applications using the Situational Judgement Test, achieving a score of 47.5. Since then, he has taught the SJT: Secret for Success training course for three years running. On all occasions, he saw a fantastic uptake and received great feedback confirming its benefit to all attendees – 100% of last year’s attendees who left feedback said they would recommend the webinar to a friend or colleague.

The programme is being delivered as an online webinar in order to make it accessible to students around the UK. It is competitively priced at £19.99 per ticket in order to suit a student budget, making it more cost-effective than class-based courses taking place elsewhere. It will be running twice on 20th November 2016 at 12:00-14:00 and 2nd January 2017 at 12:00-14:00.
