Q1: How to prepare for the O&G Residency Interview?
Firstly, do introduce yourself to our Programme Director, Dr Susan Logan by reaching out to her via email.
Secondly, please send in your resume so that we can get to know you better.
Lastly, try to do a MOPEX posting with us before applying to join residency. The latter is important because, at the end of the day, it is about finding a good "fit."
We want to see whether you are the right person to join us and whether we are the place that you see yourself training in for the next 6 years plus and then join as a consultant. Nothing beats being on the ground and experiencing what it is actually like to work in NUHS Obstetrics & Gynaecology, day-to-day.
Q2: What is the interview process like?
It will be in a round-robin style. Firstly, candidates will attend a boardroom-style interview by our consultants, where they are assessed on their character and ethics, along with their portfolios.
Next, candidates are assessed on their manual dexterity skills. They will take turns performing knot-tying on a Robotic Simulator.
Lastly, there will be a Q&A session with our resident representatives, where candidates will be asked to give their opinions on the different clinical situations presented. Similarly, their character and ethics will also be assessed.
