FAQs

At MedCoach we specialize in building your confidence. We help you identify your best traits so that your personality can shine throughout the application process – from application writing, to preparing for the CASPER exam and of course when practicing for interviews/MMIs.

Our mission is to provide the most affordable one-on-one coaching with medical students of your choice who are passionate about giving you confidence throughout the application process so that you stand out,  and achieve acceptance!

And, for every session that you book, we also make it our mission to donate to a healthcare related charity and support students from low SES backgrounds who could not otherwise afford coaching.

Start by choosing your coach and then book a session to get started!

Our past supported causes include:

  • Head & Hands (2015)
  • Le Fondation Du Dr. Julien (2016)
  • The Red Cross (2017)
  • Kids Kicking Cancer (2018)
  • MS Society of Canada (2019)
  • COVID-19 Research Fund (2020)

We offer complete mentorship with the application process from start to finish.

One-on-One Sessions – What can you do with a coach?

  • Learn about what it is like to be in medical school to see if it is right for you
  • Plan our your pre-application years in terms of extracurriculars, MCAT strategy, etc.
  • Review your application (resume, cover letter, OMSAS, etc.)
  • Get advice about the CASPER exam
  • Have a mock interview/MMI session with your coach and get feedback on how to improve

CASPER exam

MMI Preparation

We have many coaches with various backgrounds from almost all of the Universities across Canada!

We also have some coaches from international schools like Australia and the US.

Look through the profiles of our coaches and find someone who seems right for you.

You can filter the coaches by location and by application experience by clicking on the names of the various schools.

Then just book a session on the “book a session” page!

Note: If a coach does not have availability on the calendar, you can send them a message to set something up through the “Contact A Coach” page.

A lot of our coaches might be going through busy medical school rotations. They also might not have a set schedule, so it is difficult for them to set a schedule through MedCoach. But, that does not mean that they are not available to book a session with you!

If the coach you want to work with does not have any availabilities on the calendar, you can sign up as a “Free MedMember” and have access to our internal messaging system. After speaking and deciding on a date and time, your coach will open up a space on their calendar so that you can book the session!

Your coach will contact you shortly after you book the session to set up a location to meet.

Absolutely! Since the interview styles are very similar across all of the health care professional fields (and assess similar skills), our coaches can help you prepare.

We cater to students also applying to dentistry and pharmacy

Definitely not! You can book a session with any coach you’d like.

If you are in different cities, the session will be conducted via skype/phone/facetime/etc.
