Psychometric testing - The Bond Medical Program has partnered with an experienced external commercial provider to run the psychometric test. The external provider is used by the Police, Ambulance, Fire Service and military to assist with choosing the best candidates. It will be conducted as an on-line test that can be taken anywhere with internet access over a specified time period. Many graduate programs, i.e. the CBA and leading accounting and legal firms use similar processes in their recruitment. The psychometric testing is designed to provide information on personal attributes recognised as being important for a successful career as a doctor, such as the ability to manage pressure, problem solve with emotions, and show empathy. The psychometric testing will focus on your strengths in regard to managing the demands of the program. Psychometric testing was introduced as part of the Bond Medical Program assessment process in 2018.

Interviews are conducted using a MMI structure consisting of at least four (4) mini interview stations. Interviewers are doctors and community members from both medical and non-medical backgrounds, who are highly trained in the interview process for entry into medicine. The interview process is designed to test: - Knowledge and critical thinking - Leadership, Initiative and teamwork - Communication skills - Responsibility
