Station 3: Ethics

After the clinical scenario interviewers will then move on to the final section of the 25-minute IMT interview the ethical question.
The internal medicine interview ethics section tests your judgement and probity.

You will be asked a question which focuses on ethics, professionalism or governance.
This question will not be available to you to consider in advance and the hypothetical scenario will be given on completion of the clinical scenario.

This question will not focus on clinical aspects, and will deal with the moral, ethical, legal, etc. issues of a particular situation. Your answer should be guided by GMC Good Medical Practice.

This question will last up to five minutes.

IMT Ethics Question

The first will be the ethical scenario, which (as you would expect) deals more with consideration of the moral, ethical, legal, etc. issues of a particular situation.

You will be assessed on your responses to the ethical scenario, as well as knowledge of the different considerations required. This section of the interview is designed to assess your demonstration and understanding of professionalism and governance in a given situation.
