2020 Workshop FAQ Video

Will There Be Questions and Answers?

Yes. Each session is timed to allow engagement around the topic. Our speakers are used to providing their information in an engaging and efficient way allowing for plenty of questions and answers.

Our moderators will help to ensure that all participants get their chance to ask burning questions.

But please out of respect to other attendees. Try to keep your questions relevant to the topic.

So for example, if the topic is about CV composition, a question about clinical scenarios in an interview would not be relevant.

After each talk is held there is also an opportunity to post a comment or question to the presenter and summit team.

So, for example, if you have paid to access our replays. Then this will be helpful to you.

Will There Be Replays?

Yes. We recognise that not everyone can make a live webinar at the allotted time. So we will make all webinars available after the live webinar event. Usually 2 or 3 days later. Replays are available as part of a number of our ticketing options.

Can the Workshop Be Interactive?

Rest assured our workshops will be interactive. With the opportunity for audience participation, including polling and questions. Some will also include a quick activity.

If you have ever been to our face to face workshops you will know that we are adept at incorporating technologies like audience polling.

Will There Be Specific Topics For IMGs?

Yes. Due to overwhelming interest from our IMG community, we have incorporated a few topics that will be highly relevant to this group. And as annual recruitment moves forward into its second offers phase. When opportunities generally arise for IMGs.  We will roll out more specific talks.

Will There Be Specific Topics For Trainee Doctors?

Yes. The majority of our talks are highly relevant and developed for Trainee Doctors. Plus. Due to the fact that we are not constrained by a one day face to face workshop this year.

How Many Talks Will There Ultimately Be?

This Is Where It Is Up To You. The Audience. 

We have a number of great talks and speakers. planned for announcements over the next few weeks.  You will shortly see talks scheduled for June, July and August.

We want to provide as much information and assistance to as many medical students and doctors as possible about the job application process. And we feel that there is an ongoing need for this summit well into 2021.

Basically. The more doctors who back and get behind this project. The more great talks and speakers we will put on for you.

Will Speakers Be From Selection Panels?

Absolutely. We source our presenters from 2 main groups. Senior doctors who have been heavily involved in the selection process over many years. As well as doctors who have successfully navigated the career and selection process. We believe it’s important to get a perspective from both sides of the interview table.

In addition our Key Expert. Dr Anthony Llewellyn has had 25+ years of experience working in the area of medical recruitment and has extensive knowledge of how selection works in a range of circumstances.

Can You Talk About What Senior Doctors And Interviewers Look For?

Absolutely. As indicated above many of our experts are senior doctors and heavily involved in the interview process.

Can You Cover Interview Scenarios and Model Answers?

Yes. We cover the main types of interview scenarios in our talks, including behavioural questions, professional/ethical questions, clinical scenarios, talking about yourself and dealing with inappropriate questions.

Whilst it's clearly impossible to cover absolutely every question that might possibly be asked in an interview. If you attend all talks on the interview process. You will be given the key frameworks to answer the most common scenarios, with plenty of examples.

Can You Make It More Affordable?

How's Free Sound to You?

On the ticketing page, you will notice there is a range of options for obtaining access to the workshop. In the past, we have had to charge a reasonably high rate for our workshops to cover the significant costs of hiring a hotel venue.

Online summits also have costs. But you will see that we have been able to significantly reduce the cost of attendance. As well as increase value (through more content) in comparison to past years.

Why Can’t It Be Face to Face?

Our experience in 2020 with the online workshop proved that this was the right move. So many more doctors were able to participate (679) last year compared to around 200 in the previous years.

Yes. We were all been subjected to too many boring Zoom Webinars last year. But the AdvanceMed team has been doing online learning for years.

And the reality is that running one-day workshops in hotels have their limitations. For one thing, they cost more to run. But also they are more restrictive in who can get to the workshop. 

So we are online again for now and into the future.
