Plastic surgery ST3 national interviews are in many respects similar to any other medical interview. The essence of the interview is to demonstrate that you are a "good, safe and trainable doctor". The secret to obtain an NTN in plastic surgery is not only an early insight to the application and interview process, but also dedication, perseverance and hard work.This book covers the whole interview syllabus and is based on a thorough analysis of feedback gathered from previous interviews and the experience of trainees who have succeeded in obtaining their ST3 job. It illustrates a systematic approach and a structured framework in answering a wide range of questions in a variety of scenarios. In addition, this book will also help you to score well in the areas of consent, audit, management, leadership and teaching.
