Candidates applying to the 2019 Trauma and Orthopaedic ST3 interviews have to complete a set of self-assessment questions during their application. The answers you give to these questions are validated during the portfolio station on the interview day and make up a significant proportion of your overall interview score. You have to provide evidence to support your answers for each question and can get referred to a probity panel if caught trying to mislead interviewers with the evidence you have provided.

The questions, the different responses you can select and the evidence accepted for each question (as per the 2019 application round) are shown below. These are taken from the Trauma & Orthopaedics ST3 National Recruitment 2019 Applicant Handbook.

NOTE: for Question 1 ‘0-27 months‘ scores maximum points

NOTE: for Question 2 ‘10-30 months‘ scores maximum points
