If you wish to meet with a coach, but cannot afford our services, you may be eligible for a bursary.
MedCoach provides pre-medical students in Canada with comprehensive information regarding medical school admissions, physician and medical student mentors, and resources to aid in the application process. Further, MedCoach aims to serve as a vehicle for increasing diversity of physicians within the medical field and removing barriers to medical education.
To ensure the accessibility of our services to all, MedCoach is introducing a bursary program.
Eligible students include those self-identifying as of the following ancestry groups: Indigenous, Black African, Black Caribbean, Black North American. Students residing in Rural* areas, or identifying as being from Low-Income** backgrounds may also apply.
This form is confidential, and will be used only for the purposes of selecting bursary recipients. Successful applicants will be informed through email.
* Rural is defined by the Government of Canada as being small towns, villages and other populated places with less than 1,000 population according to the latest census.
** We define Low-Income, adapted from Statistics Canada, as being roughly $20,000 annual income per full-time employee per household. For example, you can apply through the Low-Income stream if your family has 2 full-time working members for a combined annual income equal to or less than $40,000.
To apply, please send a letter outlining your situation and why you feel you would benefit from coaching, to firstname.lastname@example.org
We make it our mission to provide coaching services to anyone who needs it!
