Feedback from Successful Consultants, IMGs and Fellow Clients at Major Metropolitan hospitals:
Thanks so much Claire for all your words of wisdom and extensive pre-consultation preparation. What I have gained so far is invaluable.
Major Metropolitan Hospital, 2018
I am so grateful for the recommendations I received to do formal interview training with Claire Berry. She is able to highlight parts of your CV I would have never thought to mention, guide the language you use to answer questions and approach the interpersonal questions in a sophisticated way. I successfully gained a consultant job and had the feedback that it was the strength of my interview that swayed the outcome. I would strongly her to all my friends and colleagues.
Succesful Consultant, Major Metropolitan Hospital 2019
I choose you over other providers because you seemed to offer the best service and had excellent reviews
I got the job! Thank you for your help. The panel were impressed and felt that the preparation we had done on Safety and Quality fully answered their requirements.
The interview skills you provided me with are extremely translatable for future interviews! I just interviewed for another consultant role and was appointed! I have received glowing feedback from each panel (both of whom are members of the hospital executive). They said that each interview was one of the best they have seen! They said I was extremely clear and well considered in my responses and I sold my skills perfectly. I couldn’t have done it without you.
It was a pleasure working with you and I am now working interstate and very happy
The interview was the stand out one! I got a position so very happy! Many thanks for all your help!
The interview went really well! I was very well prepared. My performance resulted in me getting the highest interview mark from the panel.
I have no doubt that my success at interview for a consultant job was due to the coaching that I had with Claire. Her understanding of the requirements for success at a consultant level interview and her experience coaching medics for this important last hurdle were invaluable. Her practical approach and command of the professional language style ensured focused skype sessions and much to practice in between. The stress of not having a permanent job is now behind me.
Couldn’t have done it without you. My performance was so much better than before our training.
Thank you again for your assistance. I felt really prepared for the range of questions that the panel asked and was offered the job.
In 2017, 95% of the Doctors who conducted our customised interview training and whom received an interview were successful in obtaining places in training programs and in hospitals.
From 2012 – 2017, 90% of Doctors were successful in obtaining places.
Yet, government surveys show only 26% of students who wanted a training place in 2013 in Orthopaedics had one by 2016.
For the last 5 years we have successfully coached at least one applicant for Cardiothoracics in Australia and New Zealand.
(Only 8 places offered in 2017 in Aust & NZ)

Being aware of the non verbal elements of an interview and having an approach to a wide range of questions will always be useful for future interviews.
All my interstate and local interviews involved many ethical questions. I certainly think that practising these with you was very useful.
This time after doing interview training, I got onto the program and will be at the hospital that I had hoped to be at. Thank you so much for your help once again!

We are delighted that in 2019 currently 100% of our post graduate clients have achieved places in the medical courses of their choice. We believe that this would not be possible without the one on one personal sessions that we offer from an interview professional. See our client’s feedback below.
I am so relieved about getting a place. Thank you so much for all your assistance. I know that it was extremely helpful in preparing me for the interview.
Your experience training people in the medical field for such a long time has helped shape your ability to train me. I couldn’t have done with it without you. I knew when I booked that I would actually going to get you doing my training and this was very important.
I really valued the fact that you actually analysed what I’ve done in my life and helped me understand where to put and how to say this in my interview. You don’t realise that so many of your experiences are relevant. I wouldn’t have got personalised approach designed just for me in a group session.
Thank you so much for all your help with interview training, your advice was invaluable. I look forward to using you again for my future medical interviews when I am a doctor.
I would like to thank you for all of your help and interview coaching. You definitely made a difference in how I responded and shaped my answers for the interview process.
Claire was able to comprehensively analyse my key attributes and strengths and present them in a format that ensured I was successful in gaining a place at medical school. I wish I went to her sooner!
I would highly recommend Claire Berry consulting for medical school interviews. This formal preparation helped set me apart from the other applicants. Claire offers expertise and advice that will instill confidence, help you formulate appropriate answers to typical interview questions, and help deal with difficult ethical scenarios.
I found the session very productive and informative as we went through so many questions. I felt much more confident going into the interview.
Claire’s training helps you to think how to solve problems and was really helpful.

The feedback regarding Claire’s training over the last few years has been consistently outstanding. At this level, she is the expert
