Who has most influence in the selection of candidates?
I had three questions that hopefully someone with lots of experience will be able to answer:
1) Which individuals form the interview panel?
2) Is the interview panel as a whole that makes the ultimate decision of selection or is it one specific individual?
3) Who is the most influential person in the decision making of selection? If more than one person is most influential, a ranking would be great : )
I am assuming that these questions are valid for general and plastic surgery equally.
I would like to thank you guys in advance for your help and I apologise for such a post but as an IMG I have noone I can ask.
