My interview questions for SHO rotation (with a different scheme) included

case scenario - you notice that a social worker in your team keeps turning up smelling of alcohol, what do you do? (whistle-blowing)

discuss an interesting case you've recently seen

why psychiatry

components of clinical governance

it's about 'protecting your patients from risk of harm posed by another Dr's, or other health care professional's, conduct, performance, or health, inclucing problems arising from alcohol or other substance abuse'

- GMC Good Medical Practice 2001

You can also find this on the Royal College booklet Good Psychiatric Practice 2nd Ed, page 38

Basically say you would be quite concerned as the S/W's conduct may be putting your patients at risk, and that you are aware that you have a professional duty to inform the employing authority of your concers, following any procedures set by the employer.

It was discussed in this forum under Psychiatry Jobs & Training Schemes, page 3 I think, under 'Help with SpR interview questions please'. The last 2 posts in that thread by Neopallium & Carefree are particularly helpful.

Thank You all for the continuing support...

I worked as SHO in Cardiology, then A&E and 4 months Psychiatry in India before coming to UK. In UK my experience is only in Psychiatry for the past 9 months.

I have read somewhere in the forum that the panel views this in a negative shade. Is that true? If so how do I come through it?

Plz advise

it is postive or negative depending on how you are able to market yourself

on the postive side you can say u have worked in diff specialities, u have med experience which ufind invaluable in psy (as many psy pt have cvs probs)

on the neg side they might grill u on why did you keep shopping specialties...

its all how you are able to convince them

More on the positive side,

You can say you wanted to widen your experience in general specialities like A&E and cardiology to make you more confident dealing with physical complaints while working as a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist is sometimes the first port of call for patients for example in rehabilitative psychiatry, some long stay units in forensic, learning disabilites or even during community work. Of course the experience would be invaluable in the speciality of old age psychiatry where a good solid base in the physical specialties would put one in quite a confident position in the overall management of patients.

Good luck.
