My Bio

Simran

Resident MedCoach

Hello everyone!

My name is Simran and I am a family medicine resident physician at the University of Toronto. I have completed my medical school training at U of T and went to Western for my undergrad in general sciences. I understand how overwhelming applying to medical school may be, and my goal is to help you navigate that journey. I genuinely care about the success of each of my students and will work together with you to make your dreams a reality.

I have been passionate about teaching for as long as I can remember – outside of MedCoach I also teach English over Skype to vulnerable communities in Brazil and Vietnam. In my spare time I enjoy playing musical instruments (flute and piano) and have given music lessons to children of low income families. As the founder of a non-profit charity to help provide educational resources/supplies to schools in need worldwide, my overall mission is to make education more accessible.

As a result I have tons of teaching experience, including interview preparation, and can help you practice and build the confidence you need for your interview. I hope to see you succeed and live your dream of becoming a future MD one day!

I applied to schools in Ontario (University of Toronto, University of Ottawa, McMaster University, Queen’s University). I have interview experience at University of Toronto, University of Ottawa and was accepted into both schools in my third year of undergrad.

Simran was very helpful. We went through a lot of practice questions and they were all useful for my panel interview. I have done a handful of interviews already. I walked out of this panel interview feeling most confident and prepared. Simran is also really approachable and patient. She personalizes the practices for you so that you get the most out of it and makes sure you understand all the feedback she provides before moving onto the next question. Next, she is very experienced as a teacher as she communicates clearly and tells you specifically how you can improve. I highly recommend her to everyone!

I think Simran is born a teacher; she has in-depth knowledge about every aspect of MMI scenarios; this profound knowledge coupled with her personal characteristics makes her a trustworthy guide to every applicant who wants to face MMI. I am personally very grateful to have classes with Simran.

I worked with Simran on practicing for my upcoming MMI interview. She was very receptive and quickly picked up on my weaknesses and strengths, giving her feedback in a kind, understanding, and insightful manner. I appreciated her perceptive approach in responding to my answers to MMI-style scenarios. I felt she really understood my style and helped me gain confidence by pointing out what I was doing well while also addressing my anxiety and certain weaknesses in my approach to scenarios. I felt her feedback has helped me become a better interviewee. I highly recommend her!

Simran was incredibly helpful! She asked an excellent variety of questions and gave me really strong feedback to work with. She did a great job breaking down each answer with me so that I could clearly identify my strengths and weaknesses, and had great ideas, techniques and suggestions that I’m excited to implement into my future answers. Would definitely recommend her to other interviewees.
