Medical Interviews and Professional Development.An Essential Handbook for the Junior Doctor


Vinten, Gerald, The Journal of the Royal Society for the Promotion of Health


Medical Interviews and Professional Development.An Essential Handbook for the Junior Doctor By Chinmoy Kumar Maity. Published by Radcliffe Publishing, Oxford, 2006. Paperback 178pp. Price £19.95 ISBN 10-1-84619-080-0

This is the refined and restructured second edition of a text, which plugs the gap in the literature of those non-clinical topics that can inhibit the junior doctor in the steady progress towards becoming a consultant. It is packed with invaluable advice and substantive content, and it demonstrates that the interview should not be undertaken lightly and without due thought and preparation. The author, a specialist registrar at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital, is still progressing and so writes from personal experience and describing his own research needs. It does seem that the author has been a junior doctor for some time, so it might be more successful if one could see the fruits of his own book's advice materializing.

The first section treats the medical interview itself, ranging over CV preparation, making a presentation and questions commonly asked with suggested responses. These include questions for which candidate answers can be very influential: the answer to 'where do you want to be in five years' time' can either inspire or aggravate an interviewing panel, as can the answer to questions relating to one's worst mistake.
