What topics do our circuits cover?


Ethics form the basis of all good medical care. Trust, accountability, mutual respect and fairness are crucial skills for any doctor to have.


The Problems and Benefits of the NHS

The challenges faced by the NHS in providing free healthcare are often related back to ethical debate. A good knowledge of the monetary and governmental pressures on our healthcare system is key for medical school applicants and something examined more and more often at interview.


Moral Debates

Doctors must protect human rights and dignity even when faced with practical difficulties. Our  circuits test you on this key aspect of becoming a doctor, providing you with situations in which a clear course of action might not always be obvious.


Good communication skills are vital in maintaining good doctor-patient relationships, so we have ensured these are rigorously examined as part of our courses. 


Conveying Bad News 

Telling a patient that something unfortunate has happened requires tact and sensitivity, and is often as emotional an experience for a doctor as a patient. Honing this skill early in your medical application will serve you well in your interviews and later career.


Explaining Complex Medical Issues

It is key to be able to convey a complaint to a patient without using medical jargon or oversimplifying the condition. We test you verbal and non-verbal (posture, facial expression and eye contact) explanatory skills at several of our stations.

Logic-based Skills

The ability to analyse the information presented to you in any given situation, and thus make an informed decision or find a correct solution is a necessary skill for a medical professional.


Data Interpretation

On a daily basis, on wards and in examinations, medics encounter clinical data. Our course helps you hone your skills for data-based interview problems.


Problem Solving

As part of our MMI day, we assess your ability to define a problem, determine the causes, come to a reasonable conclusion and take action.
