What is MedCoach?
At MedCoach we specialize in building your confidence. We help you identify your best traits so that your personality can shine throughout the application process – from application writing, to preparing for the CASPer test and of course when practicing for interviews/MMIs.
Our mission is to provide the most affordable one-on-one coaching with medical students of your choice who are passionate about giving you confidence throughout the application process so that you stand out, and achieve acceptance!
We also believe in the value of mentorship which is why you have complete control over which coach you choose to work with and when. Want a little help? Great! Want a lot of help? No problem! You control how much coaching you want and when.
Over the past 10+ years we have helped students achieve acceptance to medical schools all over Canada and the US.
For every session that you book, we also make it our mission to donate to a healthcare related charity and support students from low SES backgrounds who could not otherwise afford coaching through our MedCoach Bursary.

Does MedCoach Offer Coaching For Other Programs or CARMs Coaching?
Since the interview styles are very similar across all of the health care professional fields (and assess similar skills), our coaches can help you prepare.
We help students applying to dentistry, PT, OT, midwifery, and pharmacy.
Also, over the years, our medical student coaches come back to us as residents to coach for CARMs!
Please e-mail email@example.com with the program you are interviewing for and we can find a MedCoach for you.
The Coach I Want Does Not Have Availability. What Do I Do?
If your coach does not have any availability on their calendar it does not mean that they are not available. There may be two reasons why the coach does not have availability:
- They are fully booked or
- They have not set availability due to a busy rotation in medical school
The easiest way to find out if a coach can open up specific hours for you would be for you to download our app, login and send the coach a message. You can also send the coach a message by going to the find a coach page and when you are logged in you’ll see the button to message each coach.
What Is Your Refund Policy?
For One-On-One Sessions:
Cancellation of a session is subject to a $5 administration fee.
Rescheduling a session is free.

Please understand our MedCoaches make time out of their busy schedules to meet with students! Please respect your appointment times and make sure that you can be there as well before booking.
