Applying for any surgical training program can be daunting, particularly in the setting of a selection process that relies heavily on an interview to delineate candidates. It is safe to say that without Jo I would not have been successful. We covered the full spectrum of clinical and non-clinical topics, worked on interview technique and structure, and she helped me in the lead up to stay steady. Moreover, when I was unsuccessful twice she came up with new content each year and helped me continue to improve. I am very grateful to Jo for her help and can only recommend her to anyone looking for an interview coach.
