This book provides medical students and doctors-in-training with a complete guide to preparing, applying and interviewing for such posts. Providing guidance on the typical UK academic pathways (including Academic Foundation Programme (AFP), Academic Clinical Fellowship (ACF), and Academic Clinical Lectureship (ACL)), candidates will learn how to choose a programme that suits their needs and experience. They will also get practical tips on how to best showcase their achievements and work portfolio in order to submit the highest quality application. A range of model answers to application and in-person questions are provided, together with a mock interview section demonstrating how to approach tricky questions and interviewers.
