  1. Hi all!
    I have searched through the forums but have had no luck finding any threads relating to a Medical AIB. I have my AIB soon and have been told it is a medical one(?), which is appropriate as i've applied to be a Nursing Officer. However the only differences I know about is that someone medical is on the board and to know about the Geneva convention, medical officers carrying firearms etc. Just wondering if there's any Doctors or Nurses out there who have attended one and if theres much difference to the norm? I know that a friend who went in as a Naval Nurse, was asked in her main interview about clinical governance, the NMC and more nursing related questions. Where as of yet I haven't really been asked anything like that. My ACLO has been really helpful, but not in relation to the medical branch side of it!
    So far i'm just assuming it won't be very different from the normal AIB but on top preparing for medical/nursing related questions etc just in case. But any advice would be gratefully received :)

    Best bet is speak direct to the medical specialist recruiters if you haven't already: 02392 727096.

    I'd imagine the AIB is pretty much as you describe & assume you're aware of the recent changes to the geneic AIB:

    Good luck.
  3. When I had my AIB there were three boards on. Board 1: Submariners, Board 2: Medic's and Board 3: FAA. The setup for all three including the Medic's was exactly the same. I imagine the only difference being the questions you are asked in the interview and who is on the interview panel, we had a commander who was in the FAA. Just my own experience however as Ninja has stated it's probably best to get in contact with those who he mentioned. Good luck.

  4. On my AIB, we had a Doctors board with a surgeon command as Pres. In my board we had a nurse and the board had no nursing officer experience. Apparently they asked very few medical questions when I asked her about her interview.
  5. Thanks all!! Good to know a bit more on what to expect :)
    @Ninja_Stoker thanks! I did find that post a couple of weeks ago which really really helped with the preparation!
