  • (1888PressRelease) September 07, 2011 - London, United Kingdom - One of the country's leading providers of medical interviews and interview skills consultancy services, ISC Medical, comment on how the competition to enter NHS Speciality Training has forced trainees to develop stronger CVs.

    As doctors are preparing for another round of recruitment towards entry into specialist training, many will reflect on whether their CV is competitive enough to make it through this tough selection process.

    With competition ratios approaching 40:1 and even 100:1 in some specialities, it is becoming increasingly necessary for young doctors to gain extra points in their application by attending extra-curricular courses such as medical Teach the Teachers courses and medical management and leadership courses.

    "Life has become tough for young doctors", Olivier Picard, MD of ISC Medical says. "Not only are they being pushed to enhance their CVs in all directions, they have to do so in an environment where their training budgets have been cut, in some cases by up to 60%. That is why we are making every effort to provide courses at an affordable level of cost, and to encourage trusts to run in-house courses in order to optimise the number of people who can attend such courses at the lowest possible cost for the participants."
