The Moorfields Consultant Course is exceptionally valuable for anyone preparing for their Consultant interviews. The course was well-structured, with a range of eminent speakers targeting key topics and providing insight into interview panels and the medical director’s perspective, via lectures, small group activities and one-to-one training in mock interviews. I left the course feeling inspired to work on my application and CV”
