    Do you mean questions on Glasgow's / Scotland's Health and their NHS ?
    yer, i read a bit on Wikipedia and couple of mins on the proposed euthanasia law and that was it. Basically, i only got questioned on what i knew. Anyone else i know got harder questions

    can't believe it's taken me this long to find the thread! had an interview on the 17th of december. can't believe i managed to make it from cardiff and the person before me couldn't get in from glasgow, crazy!
    but nah, i thought the woman was almost rude with her whole manner. it was really intense. the guy was lovely though. i felt more like i was being quizzed on how much i knew about glasgow medicine as a pose to them asking about me. ah well! can't win them all

    perhaps you had food around your mouth?

    how did it work though if she kept interrupting you....

    I'd say that wasn't fair as you wouldn't have been able to give a decent answer...

    haha I didn't. She had one of those concentrating fixed glare, I got used to it after she did it twice but it meant I never ran out of answers (good enough hopefully), had few second for each questions ready or do it felt so I had to cut to the chase pretty quick. the interview lasted like over 20 mins so I hope means it was good.

    They could ask how can the general health in West Scotland be improved. My mate got asked that
    Why WEST scotland? I'm and international so i dont really know what's different about west scotland. Is it less developed or poorer compared to the rest of UK? what's so special about it?

    Thanks!

    Haha! Oh boy, you are in for an absolute shocker when you arrive in Glasgow and see places like Possilpark, Shettleston, Parkhead etc. Then you have places on the outskirts of Glasgow like Airdre, Bellshill and Coatbridge

    After factoring out socioeconomic status the west coast of Scotland is still by far the least healthy place in Scotland. Indeed, NHS GG&C along with NHS Lanarkshire have the highest incidence of CHD in the UK by a considerable amount. I don't have lung cancer or stroke figures to hand but I'd be willing to bet the mortality and morbidity rates will be sky high too.

    I work as a pharmacist in a hospital and several of the doctors have told me Glasgow love to do the whole good cop, bad cop thing... And apparently they still do it when interviewing for training places later on in life too...

    I had my interview and it went weirdly. it didn't seem to focus on my motivation, or biomedical knowledge. it seemed to be mostly about my knowledge of the course which i found weird. the interviewers were asking me about a part of the course that attracted me to glasgow, and i thought i'd said it all, the said they wanted me to talk about SSCs. which are hardly unique to glasgow, so wasn't what crossed my mind.

    dunno how that will come out..

    just for anyone who has any interviews coming up

    you're probably guaranteed an interview then. Assuming the rest of your application is fine. They interview everyone first before giving out offers. So frustrating, being my only interview so far
