Re: Rejected 5 times, am I overreacting?

lots of great suggestions-
what I find useful is to film myself during mock interviews or even just practising at home alone .
it's helpful to see what I sound and look like.

Re: Professional Development Days 2018 (interview preparatio

Thanks for organising this, that's so helpful. Unfortunately I can't get to the peak district (too far) and I'm away during the half-term hols (I have kids!). I'd be really grateful if you'd be able to arrange for a third occasion in London.

Herts Written Exam

I would like to prepare for the written exam for the herts course, in case I get an interview. My writing skills need brushing up (speed, eloquence, putting thoughts on paper) and I can't wait with this until I know whether I am offered an interview or not. Has anyone had a written interview and can...

Re: Clinical reference

I wonder if you can see it another way, such that despite knowing your “weaknesses”, your referee was still happy to write you a reference. Might this not suggest that they see your potential, regardless of any flaws or past concerns? I’d say that’s actually pretty complimentary. Yes, I suppose so....

Re: Clinical reference

Really helpful replies, thank you both. I think the referee's remarks were valid and of course I have things to work on (as said, applicants aren't 'finished products'), but I suppose I felt it hard-going to use the reference as a place to give me those insights (wouldn't supervision and reflection ...

Clinical reference

My clinical referee offered to discuss with me what she was going write in my reference. When grading me on various aspects on a point scale 1-5, for a number of questions she said she was going to rate me as either 3 or 4 out of 5. I am of course devastated because I was hoping that she would give ...

Re: Missing lectures/placement days for religious reasons

Thanks for your replies. I am hopeful that the universities will be supportive - and I'd be surprised if they never had to deal with such a case before. However judging by the responses on this website, it appears that it might be quite rare for people like me to go on training (maybe specifically b...

Missing lectures/placement days for religious reasons

As an orthodox Jew who is applying for the clinical doctorate this year, I would like to know whether any trainees who are practicing Jews would be willing to share their experience of having to request time off for Jewish holidays, Friday afternoons, etc?
