Success at application videos

South Thames Foundation School have allowed us to share video interviews with four F2 doctors from Brighton and Sussex University Hospitals Trust who were successful in their applications to specialty.

The interviews offer useful insights into what approach each took in their applications. The videos cover Core Medical, Core Surgical, General Practice and Radiology. They were filmed in summer 2012.

Each applicant talks about how they made and confirmed choices of specialty together with a ‘plan B’ - how they made the most of foundation and how they approached the application form and interview stages. To sum up they give useful tips and also share what they would like to have done better.
