My Bio

Manasi

Resident MedCoach

Hi all!

I have a Bachelor of Health Sciences with a specialization in Global Health from McMaster University and completed my medical school at McMaster as well. Currently, I am a first-year family medicine resident at the Kitchener-Waterloo Site which is a part of McMaster. Through all my years at McMaster, I was a part of the varsity rowing team,  founded the McMaster Public Health Association and was a peer tutor for a second-year Biochemistry and Cellular Biology course. Specifically, I have taken courses such as communications skills and group process and group dynamics enabling me to connect with a variety of individuals and help you succeed in your interviews! I also have a background in debate since high school and have mentored students in public speaking as well. My teaching philosophy is simple, I want to help you become the best you, you can be!

I understand that the medical school application process can be daunting, having gone through it twice I am aware of the changes I made to be successful the second time around. The biggest change was asking for help during the process when needed. It is hard to prep for interviews or the CASPer test on your own and hence alongside some peers we set up a local practice group that met bi-weekly and I also was a part of the MedCoach Weekly MMI program during interview season. Practicing with another individual is so vital as it provides you with a lot of insight into other means of approaching a prompt and can also help identify nuances in your speech that may not be visible to you.

In my free time, I enjoy hiking, kayaking and being out in nature. I am looking forward to meeting you and helping you throughout your journey!

I liked the detailed feedback for the practice scenarios.

I liked the organization of the class and the type of scenarios presented during the class. The scenarios opened the door for deeper conversations about interesting topics in health advocacy which enabled me to start thinking in the “MMI” way. Manasi presented the material clearly and provided a very comprehensive feedback. I think one thing that could be improved is to provide a sample answer for the scenarios after giving the feedback.

Manasi is an incredible coach and I am really grateful for all of her help! I used her expertise for application advice/editing and CASPer prep, and hope to consult with her again for interviews. She is very insightful and always went above and beyond for all of our sessions to ensure I felt comfortable with the material we discussed. She is kind and compassionate while also being honest and upfront when sharing constructive feedback. Manasi is very thorough and always followed up with me if I had any questions she was unsure about in a session. Her coaching style is exactly what I was looking for and it is very evident how much she cares about her students! Thank you so much Manasi for guiding me through this experience!

Manasi was a fantastic coach for MMI prep! She quickly identified areas of strengths and weaknesses and provided targeted and effective feedback in areas requiring improvement. She created a study plan and was always prepared for each of our sessions. She provided a number of helpful resources, ran through multiple practice scenarios and provided detailed feedback on each one of my answers. She even met up with me in person to run mock MMI stations ahead of my interview (pre-COVID). Her insight into the interview process and knowledge of logistical aspects of the MMI really helped me feel prepared and confident on the day of my interview. She was great at accommodating my work schedule and delivering efficient preparation sessions given my limited availability. Highly recommend!!

Manasi is a patient, kind, and understanding person. She is compassionate, and is able to meet you wherever you are in the process. I met with her a few times for MMI interview prep before my interview at Mac, and she truly helped me refine my framework while delivering my thoughts cohesively. She always came prepared with an agenda based on what I told her I felt were my weaknesses and she gave me an idea of what the interview process is like, which definitely prevented me from going in unprepared and doe-eyed. Great coach. Thanks for all your help Manasi!
