ISC, under the name ISC Medical, operates a separate service for clients who are preparing for medical interviews. Indeed we are Number 1 provider of recruitment solutions for the medical profession, from medical entry all the way to GP salaried and partnership posts, and consultant posts. Our services include:

Consultant posts

ISC Medical is the largest provider of recruitment solutions in the UK for candidates applying to consultant posts. Our success has been built on the personal approach that we take in dealing with our clients, but also by not compromising on the quality of our products or the number of candidates that we take on each consultant interview course (6 people maximum to give you the most benefit and personal attention).

Over the past few years, consultant posts have become increasingly competitive, with candidate-to-post ratios being as high as 100 in some specialties. Even if you are the only candidate, did you know that statistically you only have a 50% chance of success because interviews tend to be harder and the "burden of proof" is greater? To help you beat your competition and optimise your chances of getting your ideal job, we have developed a range of products which will cater for all your needs.

Consultant interview courses
A small-group (6 participants maximum) one-day medical interview course specifically designed for candidates applying to consultant posts in the UK. Runs 4 to 6 times per week to ensure that you have a suitable choice of dates.

We also run a GP interview skills course for salaried and partnership posts, which runs in small groups to ensure you receive the maximum amount of personal attention.

GPVTS / GPST posts

ISC Medical is the primary provider of resources and training for entry into GPST / GPVTS, the General Practice training scheme. We were the very first ones to introduce courses specifically for GPVTS/GPST in the UK, and over the years, our books and courses have been praised as some of the most accurate and helpful practice resouces available. That reputation has prompted many trusts contact us to provide in-house courses for their own trainees. Every year, our comprehensive range of GPST/GPVTS books and our small group courses helps hundreds of doctors achieve entry into General Practice training schemes. Our products include the following: 

GPST/GPVTS selection/interview courses (Maximum 12 participants)
A small-group based one-day medical interview skills course specifically designed for candidates applying to Stages 2 and/or Stage 3 of the GPST / GPVTS recruitment process. The most popular courses in the UK, with the small number of participants on each course ensuring a high success rate.
