My Bio

Ahmed

MD Candidate - Dalhousie University

I am a medical student at Dalhousie University. I completed my BSc at Dalhousie, my MSc at the University of Calgary and PhD at York University – all of which have been in Neuroscience. As a non-traditional medical student and someone who has applied to several schools multiple times before getting accepted, I have gained a much better understanding of the admission process and what admission committees are looking for in applicants. Success in this process depends largely on how applicants present themselves and describe their experiences. I am more than happy to help you put your best self forward and frame your experiences in a compelling way throughout your personal statements and interviews. Teaching is something that I truly enjoy and a skill that I have developed over the past 10 years as a teaching assistant throughout graduate school and as an MCAT tutor. I enjoy helping students develop their interviewing skills and love watching them succeed. I used MedCoach while preparing for my interviews and found it very helpful. I’d love to pay it forward and help you gain admission into your top choice medical school!

Ahmed was such a big help in my preparation for the MMI! He helped me better understand the different question types, what assessors are looking for and how to properly organize my answers. He was extremely generous with his time, spending multiple sessions with me to keep improving on my strengths and address what could be weaknesses. He really helped me feel as comfortable as possible on interview day! I would 100% recommend you to book a session with Ahmed if you are doing preparation for the MMI.

Ahmed was awesome! He gave really good detailed feedback about things that I should do and caught onto things that I should change to make my answers better. He was super kind and supportive. Thank you!

Ahmed is a nice and caring individual and provided me with detailed feedback when we practiced together. I really appreciated that he told me his experience with med school applications, including what he did well and what he would do differently. He is a good coach especially if you are a non-traditional/mature applicant

It was a pleasure to practice with Ahmed to get a better understanding of what MMI assessors look for when asking certain questions. He provides very balanced feedback identifying both the strengths and weaknesses in a response. Ahmed was able to quickly identify the weaknesses in my responses which helped in focusing the session towards how I can address them and improve my MMI skills. The advice he provides through his frameworks is very applicable and he is patient in teaching them, providing various examples to grasp them better. I would highly recommend Ahmed as a coach!
