What is the interview selection tool?

Home / Help and advice / School of Medicine / Interviews / What is the interview selection tool?

The interview selection tool is a survey used as part of the shortlisting process for selection for interview. Here are some helpful tips for completing the survey:

  • This survey is used as part of the shortlisting process for selection for interview 
  • This is a survey about your work experience over the past 2 years only (if your work experience is still ongoing and commenced more than 2 years ago that can be included)  
  • We class ‘work experience’ as hands-on work in a public facing role. This can be either voluntary or paid.  In addition to the above, significant caring responsibilities for the family will also be included as work experience: this will typically be caring for an unwell or disabled family member. 
  • We do not include school- or college-organised programs as work experience, unless you have helped to develop these yourself
  • Shadowing staff in clinical environments should not be included in this survey, but is useful in preparing you for interview 
  • You can list up to 4 work experiences, however, please note it is not the number of work experiences we look at but the total commitment you have shown with you experience(s) 
  • Any sections you are not completing please leave blank
  • You must supply contact details for your most significant work experience provider (employer/provider) or give contact information of a teacher who knows your family situation.
  • Only complete one form. If you do submit two forms, we will only look at the first one that was submitted
