General Mock 1

Candidate Instructions

Instructions for the General Station
This is your General Interview. You have 15 minutes for this station.

Examiner Instructions

Examiner instructions:
This mock contains more questions than you will be able to go through in a 15-minute interview. This is reflective of the real interview where interviewers are given an option of a few questions they can ask the candidates in the 15-minute time frame.

You should choose a range of questions over the course of the 15 minutes that will enable you to assess the candidate on the following four domains:

  • Qualifications and experience
  • Commitment to specialty
  • Involvement in teaching/audit/QI/research
  • Reflective practice

 It is your duty to keep track of time so that you are able to ask a reasonable spread of questions that allow the candidate the opportunity to score points in all four domains. Aim to spend about 3.5 minutes on each of the four assessed domains.
