I am a plab aspirant. I m waiting for my plab 2 exam dates. Hope i will get my seat within next few days… I wish to build my career in surgery. So i hv a plan to appear in mrcs after my plab 2 exam as u know it takes around 5-6 months to get a job now a days. But i hv heard that having mrcs part a might cause problem to get job( only get offer from surgical department). Is it right? Pls give me suggestions what should i do.
I can understand where this hunch might come from. There are more Medical specialty jobs than Surgical.
A candidate with clear surgical aspirations vs a candidate with clear medical aspirations , might loose on the medical jobs when it comes to the commitment to the unit.
That said, yoy have to tailor your approach for every single interview. You don’t have to necessarily say that you have MRCS1 while applying in medical fields.
