Series of lectures and mock interview stations designed as per RCR specifications to help you secure a place in radiology.
All applications for ST1 Clinical Radiology are submitted via ORIEL. The application process requires candidates to sit the Multi-Specialty Recruitment (MSRA) exam. Once the application has been submitted via ORIEL, candidates are invited to book and sit the MSRA during a specified time window. Depending on the MSRA score, candidates are then shortlisted for the interview. Applicants’ final score comprises of MSRA score, portfolio assessment and Interview score.
The interview process consists three stations; portfolio self-assessment, portfolio station and commitment to speciality.
Our ST1 interview preparation course is based on previous interview topics as per the person specifications for clinical radiology training. The course comprises of series of lectures covering the common themes and interview techniques. The lectures are one hour each and will focus on portfolio, Interview questions and commitment to speciality.
After the lectures candidates will be allocated to one of the three stations to practice all three stations. Each station will match the real interview and will last 10 minutes. After each station, candidates will get constructive feedback from the panel of examiners. Candidates will be able to practice mock interview stations in real timings.
Station 1 Portfolio self-assessment
Candidates will be given a portfolio mark scheme as per RCR requirements. Ten minutes will be allocated for this station and candidates expected to mark their own portfolio and record score for each domain on the marking scheme. A total score at the bottom of each domain will be recorded and a total score for the portfolio by adding all of the scores from each domain. Five-minute rest after station one will be taken as there is no feedback for portfolio marking.
Station 2 Evidence of portfolio
Candidates will face a panel of two radiologists or examiners. They will be go through the self-assessed mark scheme from station one and will ask candidate for evidence for their claimed marks. The examiners will then decide if the claimed mark are accurate. If candidates score higher than expected for a piece of work, they will have chance to justify their claims. Please note in the real interview, candidates over claiming may any piece of work may face disqualification or GMC investigations.
Station 3 Commitment to speciality
This station comprises of examiners questioning the candidates on a range of topics related to radiology. The aim of this station is to asses an individual’s commitment to ST1 clinical radiology. After the ten minutes, candidates will get individually tailored feedback and their written score from the examiners.
