Our interview questions are created by writers, almost all of which, have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with companies, careers, or schools, in which they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We do, however, strive to match their background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
Our careers, companies, industries, and schools may have duplicate interview questions and answers found elsewhere on our website. Specifically, our companies and our graduate school interviews. For these two, we use the industry in which we believe the company most well-represents and the graduate programs, as the basis for the interview questions and answers that generate for each company or school.
The intent of MockQuestions.com is for our users to build confidence for their job interview, by using our thousands of interview questions and answers as they practice and prepare for their interview. We believe, most of our visitors can become more likely to succeed in their job interview with hard-work and practice. We believe, the key to success is for our users to rehearse with our interview questions while using our answer examples as an idea generator for their own interview answers. We strongly want to discourage users from memorizing our answer examples. That is not the purpose of our website.
Surgical first assistants are healthcare professionals who work as part of the surgical team. Their main responsibility is to render assistance to the surgeon during any surgical procedure. Surgical first assistants perform varied tasks in the operation theater, from preparing and positioning the patient before the procedure to monitoring the patient post-surgery. During the surgery, the surgical first assistant works closely with the surgeon, assisting with a few specific procedures such as providing hemostasis, closing up incisions and applying the appropriate dressings.
Completing a Surgical First Assistant Program is the first step towards a career in this field. You can choose to do specialist courses to learn skills for assisting in specific surgical specialties such as cardiac, spinal, vascular, orthopedic, trauma or genitourinary surgery. In addition to being familiar with the relevant surgical procedures, surgical first assistants must also be dextrous, quick-thinking, and detail oriented and have strong listening and problem-solving skills. This is a physically demanding role as it often involves standing on your feet for extended periods of time during complicated procedures.
The interviewing panel will have a series of questions to ask you to ascertain whether or not you have what it takes to work as a surgical first assistant. Some questions aim to test your knowledge of surgical procedures, equipment sterilization techniques, and emergency protocol. Other questions will aim to assess your commitment to the role and your career goals. For a successful interview, your replies must be well-thought out and convincing.
