  • How medical schools will critique your personal statement, including your work experience.
  • Duties and qualities of a doctor including leadership
  • Duty of Candour. How to admit something has gone wrong and put it right
  • Questions where there is a conflict of interest, for example if you are in a position where you have an unfair advantage or have privileged information.

  • Data interpretation exercise
  • Questions where autonomy is involved, for example patients refusing treatment that could be lifesaving.
  • Questions relation to consent and capacity

  • How to analyse and critically interpret information, for example the results of a patient satisfaction questionnaire, results of investigations or research material.

  • CANDIDATE SUCCESS

    Ethics and video consultation session was really useful. Never come across this before and now know specific answers. Will help me greatly at interview. 

    Dr Khan sat down with me and we went through a mock MMI interview and worked with me on areas I need to improve. I’ve now realised why I did badly last time ...

    I really learnt a lot, and had much to take away with me. I hardly ever feel that I’ve gained so much from a session.

     Taught me a lot that reading books for months have failed to teach me with regards to my interview technique.

    I have passed my interview last week and got an offer. I wanted to say thank you for all your help in preparing me for my interview.

    Excellent teacher. My confidence greatly increased and the tips were really useful. Could not have gained my place without this.

     Thank you for all your help. Saved me a lot of time as all the work was done for us.

    Many opportunities to learn and practice my skills with the doctors. The teaching I received was invaluable when it came to the interview.

    Thank you once again for an excellent session. Learnt lots of skills and I now know what I need to do in the interview.

    I’m glad to tell you that I got an offer. Your teaching was invaluable as the stations in the MMI were almost exactly what we went through.

    Dr Mannan is a fantastic teacher and friend who has played a major part in my becoming of a GP partner.

    Dr Mannan  was very approachable and friendly and gave good insight and explanation of what to expect during my training years.
