Candidates applying to the 2023 Trauma and Orthopaedic ST3 interviews had to complete a set of self-assessment questions during their application. Candidates that were longlisted had to upload evidence to support their answers to these questions which was validated online prior to the interview. This made up a significant proportion of the overall interview score. Be warned, candidates can get referred to a probity panel if they try to be misleading with the evidence they provide.

The 2023 Self-Assessment Questions and their weighting are available via the links below as well as the 2023 Applicant Handbook and the 2023 T&O ST3 Personal Specification. Please note: these questions change slightly every year so don’t rely on them being the same in future years.
