When the Modernising Medical Careers (MMC) programme was proposed in 2003, it was designed to ensure that ‘the end product of the training process, whether a Hospital Doctor or a General Practitioner, should be a high-quality, well-trained and accredited doctor who can deliver the care and treatment to patients in the modern NHS’ (Department of Health, 2003). Currently we are at the stage where interviews and recruitment for August 2007 have been completed, and recruitment for 2008 has commenced. It is vital for candidates to have an insight into the interview mechanism. In this article, the structure, types of questions, competencies tested and the methods used for selection such as Objective Structured Clinical Examinations, clinical vignettes, audit and research, teaching and presentation skills are discussed, so that candidates are able to better prepare themselves.
