Why Come To ISC's Dental DCT & ST Interview Course?

MAXIMUM 12 participants

We don't make you sit with 100 or 200 other people in a big lecture theatre like our competitors do (and they charge more!). With a small group size of 12 people, we ensure that you get the maximum attention and support throughout the day and that you learn ST interview skills in a way that suits you personally.

Group activities and individual practice

Interview technique is not just about theory. It is primarily about practice. The small number of participants and our afternoon workshop ensure that you get plenty of individual practice. Real practice is what will make you succeed, not formal lectures.

We make you think for yourself

Our teaching strategy is to make you learn all key medical interview techniques through discussion and active participation.. We firmly believe that you will not learn to be good at interviews simply by being spoon-fed answers via a PowerPoint presentation. Instead, we make you think for yourself and ensure that you gain all the tools you need to answer any question thrown at you.

You will receive plenty of personal attention throughout the day

Not only will the small number of participants allow you to practice often during the day, you will also have personal access to the trainer to discuss your personal issues before the course, during all the breaks and after the course. Perhaps you have a background that is unusual or a particular feature of your past training that you want to discuss in more depth. We will give you all the time you need!

A course specific to Dental applicants

This course is specifically for candidates to Dental DCT and ST interviews and you will not get mixed with candidates applying to Medical CT and ST interviews. The course is run by trainers who work actively in the Dental field and have first hand experience of Dental Interviews and recruitment.

Free email follow-up

After the course, we remain in contact with you. You can email us at any time and can be guaranteed a personal reply within 24 hours. After the course, once back home preparing for your medical interview, you will inevitably have questions or come across issues which will bother you. We will be there to answer your queries and support you in the final stages of your preparation. This is what makes our service unique and personal.

Free unlimited support for your interview preparation if you attend ISC 's Dental DCT/ST interview course

No small print, no ifs, no buts, we want you to succeed
