My Bio

Patrick

Second year medical student

Hi!

I’m a medical student at the University of Alberta currently navigating the strangeness of COVID medical school. I have a BSc in general sciences from UBC and several years of experience in cardiac research and manuscript editing. While I am fascinated by all-things science and medicine, my true passion lies in helping others to build healthy, prosperous, and fulfilling futures for themselves. I greatly admire the time and energy others have invested in me and I aspire to pay it forward, which has resulted in my espousal of various mentorship roles in athletics, research and, most recently, the medical school admission process.

I am a firm believer that success is most easily achieved once we recognize and leverage our own unique skillsets. In accordance with that, the goal of my sessions will be to identify and emphasize your distinct attributes to highlight you as a unique candidate amidst the applicant pool. In addition to this, we will work to strengthen your weaknesses and develop an easy-to-use interview approach tailored to you. That being said, I’m a very easy-going, hassle-free person and hope to run our sessions as more of a productive, well-structured conversation than a formal lecture.

My specialties lie in written applications and MMI interviews, specifically for the University of Alberta and University of Calgary. However, I can also provide guidance for other aspects of the application process, such as CASPer and panel interviews.

I hope to see you soon! Best of luck in your studies and applications!

What makes Patrick a great coach is that he is helpful, encouraging, kind, and personable! He gives great feedback and you leave the session feeling like a stronger interviewer and gaining more confidence in your capabilities. The questions he comes up with present a good challenge where you can easily learn from them within the safe space he creates. Overall, I highly recommend seeking his guidance!

I had a couple mock MMI sessions with Patrick, and have nothing but good things to say! He came prepared to our meeting with practice questions, and shared valuable resources and feedback to help me prepare for my interview. He was also very willing to talk about his experiences as a medical student, which was also very helpful in giving me things to discuss during the interview. Overall, he is a very kind, genuine person, and very willing to help you succeed at achieving your goals. 5 stars!! 🙂

Patrick did a great job creating scenarios that were similar to the ones you get on the MMI. He offered advice on how to organize your answers and approach the various types of questions that the MMI may ask you.

Patrick was great! Offered tips that I wouldn’t have thought of, and helped make my answers more organized.
